Govt has zero tolerance towards non-performing officers; tries to clear backlog of promotions: Minister Jitendra Singh

Minister Singh with the delegation of Central Secretariat employees
THE Central government has zero tolerance towards corrupt and non-performing officers though it’s highly supportive for performing officers of integrity, said MoS, personnel Jitendra Singh said on Tuesday. He further said that he personally felt disturbed to come across government employees who spend their entire service tenure of 30 to 35 years without securing a single promotion, adding that the department of personnel and training (DoPT) is trying to clear backlog of promotions. The minister was…
responding to a delegation of Central Secretariat employees who called on him in New Delhi today and sought his intervention for timely promotion of lower grade staff members, according to a press statement issued by DoPT. Many of the lowermost working professionals in the government of India are aggrieved as they are not given even one promotion during their entire service tenure.
The minister told the delegation that he had discussed the issue with all the senior officers in the ministry and several innovative means were being evolved to avoid stagnation at middle and lower rungs of the administration.
Singh also mentioned that the stagnation in promotions in a large number of cases was due to the litigation amongst the employees. The DoPT at times tries to put forward its view in the courts, but the hard reality is that the litigation delays promotions.
The minister further said that the government had done away with nearly 1,500 rules which were either obsolete or had become irrelevant with the passage of time.
