The Yogi Adityanath government of Uttar Pradesh has forcibly retired seven PPS officers on charges of corruption. All these officers were posted as deputy SP and CEO. The Yogi government has sacked some officials, too.

In the last two years, the Yogi government has forcibly retired more than 200 officers and employees of various departments. In these two years, the State government has also given punishments like suspension and demotion to more than 400 officers and other employees. In addition, more than 150 officers are still under the government scanner for their indulgence in questionable activities. The wing of the government that has seen the maximum forced retirements is the home department: 51.

Yogi began in July

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had announced in July he would force dull employees and officers to retire before age once they crossed the age of 50. The government had decided to get rid of the slack officers. Now, employees along with many big officers are on a watch list.

Following in footsteps of Modi

The chief minister is following in the footsteps of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre that has forced retirement upon many officials in the last three years. The central government has forced about six IAS officers to retire.

The State government forced these officers to retire in the latest clean-up exercise:

  1. Assistant Commandant 15th Corps PAC Agra Arun Kumar
  2. Faizabad Deputy SP Vinod Kumar Rana
  3. Agra Deputy SP Narendra Singh Rana
  4. Assistant commandant of PAC 33rd battalion in Jhansi Ratan Kumar Yadav
  5. Assistant Commandant 33rd Corps PAC Jhansi Tejveer Singh Yadav
  6. Deputy SP Moradabad Santosh Kumar Singh
  7. Assistant Commandant 30th PAC Tanveer Ahmed Khan

All of them have attained 50 years of age or older and have been accused of laxity in work and other charges.

The Yogi government made the decision based on the report of the screening committee and asked these officers to retire. In every department, employees who are dull or involved in corruption are under strict vigil.

Earlier, on 16 November 2017, the State government had forcibly retired 16 tainted officers above 50 years of age. That included three DSPs.

An Uttar Pradesh government spokesman said that the action taken by Yogi Adityanath against corruption for the last two years will become a forerunner for other States. In the last two years, the Yogi government has forcibly retired more than 200 officers and employees of different departments.

In these two years, the Yogi government has also given punishments like suspension and demotion to more than 400 officers, employees. The spokesman said that the Yogi government has taken action against these many employees, department-wise:

  • 169 officers in the energy department
  • 51 officers in the home department
  • 37 officers in the transport department
  • 36 officers in the revenue department
  • 26 officers in basic education
  • 25 officers in Panchayati Raj
  • 18 officers in the PWD
  • 16 officers in the labour department
  • 16 officials of the institutional finance department
