NEW DELHI, MAY 9 (NPN) | Publish Date: 5/9/2019 11:22:43 AM IST

Nearly 1,200 IPS officers across the country are on the radar of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) for ‘non-performance’.

Without disclosing the names, an official said that the ministry has reviewed the service records of 1,181 IPS officers, out of the total sanctioned strength of 4940, in the past three years to check the deadwood from the government, adding the numbers could go up as review of officers was a continuous process. The review of service records is carried out under Rule 16 (3) of All India Services (Death-cum-Retirement Benefits) Rules, 1958 during 2016 and 2018 to check non-performers.

As per the rule, Central government in consultation with the state government concerned may ask an IAS officer to retire in public interest by giving at least three months previous notice in writing or three months’ pay and allowances in lieu of such notice. “The periodical review helps the government in assessing performers and checking non-performers. Based on this, performers are encouraged and non-performers are asked either to improve or face expulsion from service in public interest,” the official said.
