The performance of the administration is utmost important for good governance and its a matter of ‘perform or perish’ in the Modi government to make its workforce accountable, a senior Personnel Ministry official has said.

The ministry has taken harsh steps against 24 IAS officials and 381 civil services officers by premature retirement and cut in remuneration for ‘non-performance’ and their involvement in illegal activities said an official.

These measures have been highlighted in a book which was presented to Prime Minister Modi “3 years of sustained HR initiatives: Foundation for a new India”.

The booklet says “To ensure accountability of bureaucracy, the government has made probity and performance the twin pillars on which good governance rests,”.

“These strict measures have gone a long way towards inculcating a sense of discipline and accountability in the bureaucracy and have sent a message to employees to either perform or perish while having a positive impact on the performing workforce,” the ministry said.

More than 11000 records of class A officers were reviewed along with 2953 IAS, IPS, and IFS officers. The ministry also had a look on records of 19000 class B officers to weed out the corrupt and non-performers of the lot.
