PORVORIM: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant today clarified that the government order to prematurely retire all those non-performing or disobeying employees is not restricted only to departments in Secretariat but across Goa.
“Government order to prematurely retire all those non-performing or disobeying employees, is not restricted to only departments in Secretariat but across Goa,” said Sawant.
Under Secretary of Department of General Administration (GA), Shaila Bhosle had on Tuesday issued an office memorandum to heads of all the departments in the Secretariat to initiate strict action against such employees by invoking service rules/Fundamental Rule-56 (j), which empowers the appropriate authority to retire any government servant in the public interest.
Sawant said that a necessary amendment will be issued to the OM, making the order applies to all the state government offices.
He said that all those non-performing staffers would be sent on premature retirement.
The state government has asked heads of departments housed in the Secretariat to take strict action against those employees who come late and are lethargic towards the work.
“Instances have come to the notice, and time and again, various requests are being received by this department from the departments housed in the secretariat to replace some staff due to their lethargic approach towards office duties, disobedience, frequent late coming and for their absolutely no interest to learn behaviour,” the GAD had maintained.
