NEW DELHI: All retiring central government bureaucrats will soon be able to leave behind a 1,000-word note on their significant achievements during service that can be put up online so that serving officers can draw inspiration and build on those ideas.

The ministry of personnel, which reports to the prime minister, has circulated a concept paper to all ministries, proposing to create a platform for retiring employees to volunteer to showcase "commendable work" done during service.
"While the retiring employees can look back with satisfaction and a sense of fulfilment, this would also create a database of useful suggestions and information... It will also act as a motivator for serving employees," the concept paper says, asking the ministries to give their comments by November 30.
The ministry has, however, specified that comments which are religious or political or against national interest must not be included in the note. It has also specified that commendable work will include "any work that has contributed to the efficiency, economy and effectiveness in government functioning, any innovation which led to improved work culture or manuals or publications related to work created by the retiring employee".
The bureaucrats will be required to submit a write-up of not more than 1,000 words six months before their retirement when they apply for pension. "Since most successful ventures would have contributions of the entire team, retiring persons must ensure that names of other members of the team are indicated in the write-ups," the ministry has said in the concept paper.
The retiring babus will also be asked to mention if they would be willing to volunteer for social work post-retirement. "This would be a wonderful opportunity to garner the resource of retiring employees for voluntary contribution to nation building post-retirement," the paper says.

The ministry has also implemented a programme to provide counselling to employees who are about to retire as the government intends to utilise the services of these officials for useful interventions in society like evaluation of development schemes being implemented across India. As per a government estimate, there are about 40,000 fresh retirees every year from central government civil establishments alone, while the number could be over a lakh if personnel from defence, railways, posts and posts and telecom were to be included. There is already a pool of 50 lakh existing pensioners.

What an opportunity to blow their trumpets and hide their blunders?

ACHIEVEMENTS IF ANY WOULD HAVE ALREADY SURFACED AND THEIR IMPACT WOULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN FELT AND IF THE RESULTS HAD BEEN COMMENDABLE, THE JUNIOR HEIRARCHY/ PUBLIC ETC WOULD HAVE ALREADY COME TO KNOW OF THE SAME AND IF THEY ARE REALLY WORTHY, THEY MAY BECOME PRECEDENTS/ TREND SETTERS.

SUCH BUREAUCRATS COULD CERTAINLY BECOME ROLE MODELS. VERY FEW....!!!!!

IN RECENT TIMES, HOW MANY ARE THERE TO TAKE NOTE OF?

IF THE BUREAUCRATS HAD BEEN OF THE ILK OF THE PAST, LIKE THE SO-CALLED "STEEL -FRAME" IN THE PAST, MANY SCAMS WOULD NOT HAVE RESULTED......COUNTRY WOULD HAVE PROGRESSED MUCH FASTER.....TODAY THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE POTHOLES AND PITFALLS.....Governance has become a casuality.... Ethics are at the lowest ebb.... Respect to truth/justice is at the nadir among the majority....

Having been in power, if they could not contribute to the NATION BUILDING in 3 and 1/2 decades of service, what can they do after retirement? - Except to contribute to more conflicts, confusions and criticisms.

WE HAVE SEEN IN RECENT TIMES, HOW SMALL DEPARTMENTs LIKE PENSIONS/PENSIONERS' WELFARE IN MP,PG & P AND SO ALSO THE EX-SERVICEMENs' WELFARE IN MOD COULD INDULGE IN PURE MISCHIEF OF "ALTERUNG CABINET DECISIONS" " COURT VERDICTS" ETC AND ULTIMATELY LEAD TO HUNDREDS OF LITIGATIONS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY -HARASSING OLD PENSIONERS WHO HAVE SERVED THE NATION WITH SINCERITY, DIGNITY, HUMILITY AND HONOUR!- MODIFIED PARITY CASES, RANK PAY CASES, SPS VAINS CASE, HARYANA CIVIL SERVANTS CASES ETC ARE SOME OF THE EXAMPLES.

INSTEAD:

1.LET THEIR PAPER BE PUT IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN FIRST - SAY FOR 30 DAYS TO GET A FEED BACK FROM THE PUBLIC.

2.LET THEM SHARE HOW THEY "WERE PREVENTED FROM PERFORMING/ ACJIEVING"......

3.LET THEM ALSO SHARE HOW THEY HAD UNRAVELLED GREAT MISCHIEFS' BY OTHERS IN POWER....

Both positive and negative aspects must be shared......

BESIDES BLOWING TRUMPETS, LET THEM ALSO BLOW WHISTLES TO SING DIFFERENT TUNES ......
