What’s bottom-line in Govt? Dr Trivedi says 40% of salary of Central government officers to be linked to performance

THIS could be one of the major system changes in largely static Indian bureaucracy. As high as 40% of the salary of Central government employees will soon be based on performance, Dr Prajapati Trivedi, secretary, Performance Management Division of Cabinet Secretariat said on record while speaking to industrialists in a meet organized by industry lobby Assocham. He was making a point about how the government has made an effort to bring in accountability in the system.
On February 17, 2010, BoI ( reported that 40% of a government employee's salary could be linked to performance, and promotion to additional secretary won't be a cakewalk.
Inaugurating 2nd CFOs Roundtable Conference 2010 organized by Assocham in New Delhi on Friday, Dr Trivedi said all 62 government ministries and departments on board have signed the tool called Results Framework Document (RFD) which will set targets for each ministry and will finally be the basis for yearly evaluation. “Results will be our bottom-line just like profits are the bottom-line of the private sector” he said, according to an Assocham release.
According to sources, the performance management division of the cabinet secretariat, has reportedly worked out a proposal under which senior administrators like secretary or additional secretary would get a bonus of no less than 20% of their salary provided his ministry meets 100% target and saves money from non-plan expenditure. That means, a secretary to a highly efficient ministry of the Government of India, who gets Rs 80,000 per month as salary may receive Rs 20,000 more, making him an instant lakhpati.
