      Govt asks Banks, PSUs to review Employees to remove Corrupt Non-Performing ones

      Leave a Comment
      In order to remove corrupt and non-performing ones, the central government has asked Banks, Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) and all its departments to review service records of employees working under them.

      The Personnel Ministry has written to secretaries of all central government departments asking them to carry out the review of all categories of employees in “letter and spirit” and to ensure that decision to retire a public servant is not “arbitrary”.

      All ministries/departments are requested to undertake the periodic reviews in letter and spirit, including in public sector undertakings (PSUs)/banks and autonomous institutions, under their administrative control,” it said.

      The ministries or departments should ensure that the prescribed procedure like forming of opinion to retire a government employee prematurely in public interest is strictly adhered to, and that the decision is not an arbitrary one, and is not based on collateral grounds, the Personnel Ministry said.

      All government organisations have been asked to furnish a report to the Ministry in a prescribed format by 15th day of each month starting from July 15, 2019, the directive said.

      The service records of employees working under banks, PSUs and central government departments will be reviewed as per the Personnel Ministry guidelines under Fundamental Rule 56 (J), (I) and Rule 48 of Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules 1972. These rules allows government to retire a public servant in public interest “whose integrity is doubtful” and those “found to be ineffective” in working. The government will also make zero tolerance policy against corruption more comprehensive and effective.
