Maharashtra government for stringent laws to tackle retired bureaucrats

THE government of Maharashtra may amend existing laws so as to make retired bureaucrats responsible for mistakes they had committed while in service. According to reports quoting Maharashtra’s urban development minister, the new laws are being planned because several retired bureaucrats manage to skip punishments thanks to the loopholes of existing laws.
According to the existing laws, retired bureaucrats at best lose their pensions. They are not compelled to surrender assets for any loss to the exchequer because of their omissions and commissions while in service. The new laws may also ensure that retired bureaucrats must take government’s permissions before joining any private sector company.
The issue cropped in Maharashtra assembly during the debates on the issue of irregularities allegedly committed by former CIDCO vice president and Managing Director GS Gill. In fact, the state government set up two secretary level committees last year to investigate decisions taken by Gill in the last six months before his retirement.
