Review of posts for fixing the retirement age of central personnel, files sought by 30 September: The central government is going to set new rules for retirement to address complaints like backlog problem, new recruitment and promotion delays. According to sources, the retirement age in the current proposal will be decided in two ways. First, if the worker has completed 33 years of service and second, if he himself has reached 60 years of age. The proposal has been sent to the Finance Ministry in this regard. After getting approval from there, new rules of retirement will be implemented from the next financial year. At the same time, the government has also started reviewing posts in all departments.
Demand service profile of central personnel
Major changes are being made in organized cadre and non-organized cadre. The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), Government of India, has sought the service profile of central personnel for setting new retirement rules and for cadre review. All the ministries will have to submit the service profile of their service and cadre staff by 30 September. For this, there is no delay in this matter, for this the DoPT has sent an office ‘memorandum’ to all the ministries.
Finance Ministry approval required
Explain that the Central Government has prepared a proposal to reduce the retirement age in all its ministries and security forces. Many officials and personnel have been complaining that they do not get timely promotions. On the other hand, there was no solution to the backlog problem. Thirdly, the government is also confused about the new recruits. If new retirement rules are implemented, all three of these problems can be overcome. However, the approval of the Finance Ministry holds the most important position in it.
Even if the new retirement rules are implemented in several stages, there is bound to be more pressure on the finance ministry. Employees retiring prematurely, holiday money and workers recruited before April 1, 2004 will also have to pay their pension. A team of officials in the Finance Ministry has been working on it.
Many terms of British rule
According to a DoPT official, many services are under organized cadre. But there are some services that were made part of the unorganized cadre. Apart from this, there are many other ranks in which there has been no change for decades. As a result, many officials and personnel have been complaining that they do not get promotions on the basis of work report. For example, organized cadres get promotions on time. These include various other services including IAS, IFS and IPS. The posts which were created during the British rule, they continue till today.
Everyone gets promotions
The intention of the government is that the workers now get promotion and other benefits on the basis of their work. There are many posts in other departments including railways, on which neither the work report of the personnel sitting is made nor their duty time. One worker works from morning to night, then the other gets the same salary after completing the job in three to four hours. In other ways, he allegedly takes the promotion first. Sources reveal that the DoPT has gone a step ahead in framing new retirement rules and reviewing the cadre.
All this will be in the service profile of the workers
- Name of service, cadre, rank, cadre controlling authority, formation of cadre and report of last time cadre review, post order arrangement, grade and posting, duty charter and responsibility for work on various grades
- The way to get into service or cadre, such as exams etc. Detailed details of eligibility, promotion, recruitment rules and service rules etc. have to be given
- What is the impact of the Seventh Pay Commission report on the concerned service or cadre?
- How many recruitments have been made in the last five years and what is the latest status of the seniority rank list
- How many ranks are there, promotion status, record of deputation in the cadre, details of all vacant posts
- What has been done for training and skill development, how much are the required training programs, who has done many refresher courses, and how much has the level of competence increased after coming into service
- Who has administrative control over how many posts and knowledge of isolated cadre or service
These ministries will have to give a service profile by September 30
