Compulsory retirement and sword of prosecution haunts the wayward civil servants and bankers

Newsroom24x7 Network

New Delhi: After a thumping victory in the general Elections to Parliament, the Narendra Modi led NDA Government has started its second consecutive term in power at the Centre by giving the clear message that it will not tolerate the poor performers and the wayward in the all India services who fail to follow the path of rectitude by announcing the compulsory retirement of 15 officers of Indian Revenue Service (IRS) (C&CE) with immediate effect on Tuesday, 18 June 2019.

The Modi Government’s message and intent to ensure probity and accountability notwithstanding, questions are still being raised by a section of those belonging to the All-India Services. Some are asking why pick only the IRS officers at the word go. Why the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) , Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) officers, who are either facing serious charges or there is prima facie evidence against them, have been spared from direct action by the Government of India in the first phase.

According to the Central Vigilance Commission, sanction for prosecution was pending in 57 cases for four months till 30 April 2019. The status quo remains the same in most of these case even now.  The only development in this matter is that in seven cases involving sixteen officials of Department of Personnel & Training, Corporation Bank, State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Bank of Baroda and Syndicate Bank, the Central Vigilance Commission has agreed with the departments and Organizations concerned that sanction for prosecution is not necessary. However, final action taken or decision is awaited in these cases.

In the meanwhile, it has been reported that CVC has sought sanction from the Department of Economic Affairs under the Ministry of Finance to prosecute in the alleged case of corruption linked with INX Media, former NITI Aayog CEO Sindhushree Khullar, a retired 1975 batch IAS officer of the Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territory (AGMU) cadre. In the same case, sanction has also been sought to prosecute former secretary of the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises Anup K Pujari, a 1980 batch retired IAS officer who was borne on the Karnataka cadre and Prabodh Saxena, a 1990 batch serving IAS officer, who is now posted as Principal Secretary in the Himachal Pradesh government.
