These include 25,000 IAS, IPS, and IRS officers.
Those who thought government employees do not have to undergo the performance review process every year like employees in a corporate job will be happy to learn that the government has reviewed the performance of 67,000 government employees.
This includes 25,000 officers from the Indian Administrative Service, Indian Police Service and Indian Revenue Service.
The central government’s objective is to further improve the service delivery and governance system.
The review is not just for the sake of it. Those government officials who fail on performance or are high on corruption, will be shown the door.
As per media reports, Jitendra Singh, MoS, personnel, stated that the government’s approach is of high-level efficiency and “zero-tolerance” towards corruption. On the other hand, it is also ensuring work-friendly environment for honest officers.
It is learnt that the government has adopted an objective mechanism to evaluate the central government officials. Around 129 non-performing officials including IAS and IPS officers were asked to go in the last one year.
However, among 49 lakh central government employees, the number of those reviewed is still very small.
