Yogi govt mulls compulsorily retirement for corrupt and inefficient bureaucrats aged 50 years and above

The Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government is considering compulsory retirement for state bureaucrats aged 50 years and above, if they are found inefficient in their duty, PTI has reported.

Such a decision by the Yogi government comes after another tough action of its, where it suspended district magistrates appointed to the districts of Gonda and Fatehpur following allegations of illegal mining and financial irregularities against them.

As per a government order issued by Additional Chief Secretary Mukul Singhal, all the departmental heads are required to screen all the employees who have completed 50 years before 31 March 2018, for compulsory retirement. This screening needs to be completed before 31 July and would include a detailed report about the employees’ performance and work done.

An India Today report has claimed that clear instructions have been given by the Yogi government to not allow non-performing and corrupt employees to continue with their duty.

The media reports claimed that such a tough stance by the Yogi government has not gone down well with the bureaucrats who are calling it an attempt to harass them. As per UP Secretariat Employees’ Association’s President – Yadavendra Mishra, they won’t tolerate this decision and would hold a meeting to discuss their future course of action, which might also include going on strike.

Incidentally, even the Modi government has gone down the compulsory retirement route after it came to power.

As reported by us, the central government had retired two IPS officers from Chhattisgarh cadre for being inefficient. Besides this two other IPS officers were sacked by the government for non-performance. Even MOS in the PMO’s office Jitendra Singh had stated in a press conference that the government had given early retirement to as many as 129 officers over a similar charge.

In total it has been estimated that 176 bureaucrats have been compulsorily retired by the Modi government between 2014 and 2017.
