Karnataka govt to axe non-performing officials

The state government is also planning to bring the IAS and IPS cadre under the Compulsory Retirement Scheme (CRS) to weed out officials who were not delivering, sources in the Chief Minister's secretariat told PTI today.

They said the government was in the process of obtaining the Centre's consent to bring the IAS and IPS officials under the ambit of the scheme.

The state government appears to have taken a cue from the Moily committee report on administrative reforms, which suggested sacking of government servants after 20 years of service if they were found unfit to continue.

Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa took a decision in this regard as some officials were found wanting in implementation of schemes initiated by the state government, they said.

The officials said the government after identifying such bureaucrats would offer them a voluntary retirement scheme and if they did not accept, they would be retrenched under the new scheme.

An order to this effect would be issued soon, they said.

In the second phase, lower level officials would be brought under the purview of the scheme.
