Appraisal of Performance of Civil Servants
Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS)
The Sixth Central Pay Commission has recommended the introduction of new performance based pecuniary benefit, over and above the regular salary, for Government employees. The benefit will be called Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS) and will be payable taking into account the performance of the employees during the period under consideration. The recommendation has been accepted by the Government. Guidelines are being worked out through inter-departmental consultation.
Rule 16(3) of the All India Services (DCRB) Rules, 1958has been amended on 31st January, 2012 which provides that the Central Government may in consultation with the State Government concerned, require a Member of the All India Service (AIS) to retire from Service in public interest, after giving such Member at least three month’s previous notice in writing or three month’s pay and allowances in lieu of such notice-
(i) After the review when such Member completes 15 years of qualifying Services; or
(ii) After the review when such Member completes 25 years of qualifying Services; or
(iii) Attains the age of 50 years, as the case may be; or
(iv) If the review referred to in (i) or (ii) above has not been conducted, after the review at any other time as the Central Government deems fit in respect of such Member.
So far as Central Government employees are concerned, Government in public interest may retire any Government Servant after he has attained the age of 50/55 years or after completion of 30 years service by giving him notice of not less than three months in writing or three months pay and allowances in lieu of such notice.
