New Delhi: The railways has decided to get rid of “deadwood" from service by compulsorily retiring employees on the basis of a performance review.
“It has already been done in two-three cases in railways where concerned employees found to be non-performer were asked to go as they were considered to be deadwood in the rail administration," said a senior railway ministry official.
Recently two IPS officers were compulsorily retired on the basis of performance. The official said more such employees are likely to be asked to go as the review process is on.
The railways’ move is part of the government’s drive to enforce accountability in the administration and show the doors to those who were found to be wanting.
Besides performance, lack of indiscipline and integrity are also other factors taken into account for deciding the issue. There are also a few cases involving conviction in various courts who will be asked to go in railways
