Govt finalising guidelines for performance based incentives New Delhi: The Government was working on guidelines to give performance based incentives to its employees.

"The sixth Central Pay Commission has recommended introduction of new performance based pecuniary benefit, over and above the regular salary, for Government employees," Minister of State for Personnel V Narayanasamy told Rajya Sabha in a written reply.

"The benefit will be called Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS) and will be payable taking into account performance of employees during the period under consideration. The recommendation has been accepted by the Government.

Guidelines are being worked out through inter-departmental consultation," he said.

He said the Centre has amended All India Services Rules this year to enable the Central Government to ask a member of the service to retire in public interest.

"The Central Government may, in consultation with the State Government concerned, require a Member of the Service 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," the Minister said.

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 of service by giving him notice of not less than three months in writing or three months pay and allowances.
