On PM Modi’s order, the Centre has ordered 33 revenue department senior officials to take premature retirement as he doesn’t want non-performers in the team.
According to NDTV, 72 officials have also been dismissed following departmental and disciplinary action.
However, this was the first time when action was taken against such a big group.
All these 105 officers were on Class 1 level and aged above 50 years.
The website quoted a senior personnel ministry official saying that the action was taken against the revenue officials as a part of measures to change the officials’ perception that poor performance would not impact their job.
PM had been constantly getting complaints from several departments about officials who were either indifferent or harassed the public.
