Deadwood under radar: Govt reviews service books of 67K staff

The central government has undertaken an exercise to review the service records of about 67,000 employees, including IAS and IPS officers, to identify non-performers.
The review exercise is a part of the government's efforts to further improve the service delivery and governance system.

A senior official in the Department of Personnel and Training said the exercise may result in punishment to those who do not conform to the code of conduct framed for them.
"The service records of nearly 67,000 central government employees are under review to check non-performance," he said.
Nearly 25,000 of these are from all Indian and Group A services -- including the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Revenue Service (IRS), among others, the official said.
