Director General wanted for good governance think tank; Govt readies to pay a salary of Rs 3.75 lakh per month

THE Centre has been looking for a director general to head National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG), a think tank that guides and helps implement good governance reforms through research, policy analysis, advocacy, and capacity building in order to strengthen institutions that deliver good governance and foster democracy. And the government is ready to pay the suitable candidate a monthly salary of Rs 3.75 lakh with the condition that...
the selected candidate would not be given residential accommodation and car, two major perks that all senior government officers enjoy.
According to a DoPT circular, the minimum educational qualification is a post-graduate degree from a recognised institution though a doctoral qualification would be desirable. The vacancy will be filled up on deputation or contract basis. Any private citizen fulfilling the criteria or the eligible officers working in the Central or state governments can apply for the post.
For the government officers, the experience of at least 15 years as Group 'A' posts at different tiers of the government is a must.
The appointment will be for a fixed term for three years, which may be extended by another two years with the approval of the competent authority. The upper age limit for DG, NCGG is 60 years, and hence, the contract term would be limited till attaining the age of 60 years. The vacancy circular has made it amply clear that no extension will be granted to him or her thereafter. The applicant should not be over 57 years of age.
The selected candidate will be paid a consolidated salary of Rs  3.75 lakh per month without the facility of car and house. The other conditions of service such as Provident Fund, LTC and medical reimbursement etc. will be governed by the various relevant rules and orders applicable to officers of the grade under the NCGG from time to time.
The last date of application is February 28, 2015.
Any doubt? You need to contact Director (Training), Department of Personnel and Training (Training Division), 3rd Floor, Block IV, Old JNU Campus, New Delhi-110067.
In fact, it was in February 2014, the then government launched the new think tank NCGG by upgrading National Institute of Administrative Research (NIAR), Mussorrie, and giving it a wider mandate.
