New Delhi: The Centre is planning to make it mandatory for all its employees to write details of commendable work done by them during their service before they retire.
The Department of Pension and Pensioners' Welfare (DPPW) has proposed to create a platform for retiring employees to showcase significant achievement made during their service period.
"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," the DPPW said in an order.
It has also circulated a concept papers to all central government ministries and departments seeking their comments.
"Initially this facility is to be provided only to retiring central government employees. Employees retiring in the next six months may be provided an online facility to submit their outstanding achievements. Submission would be voluntary," said the concept paper.
A write-up not more than 1,000 words, may be submitted along with the Form 5 (pension application form which is required to be submitted six months before retirement), it said.
The input will be checked by Head of Office and result submitted to the administrative head or authority designated for this purpose.
"Comments which are religious or political in nature or are against national interest will not be permitted," the note said.
This exercise would be completed at least one month before retirement and the result uploaded on the departmental website. "While an online system will be designated for this purpose it would be possible for employees to submit hard copies instead of going online," it said.
The outstanding work would include any work that has contributed to the efficiency, economy and effectiveness in government functioning and any innovation which led to improved work culture.
"This would provide satisfaction to the retiring employees and also act as a motivator for serving employees. This would also be a wonderful opportunity to garner the resource of retiring employees for voluntary contribution to nation building post retirement," the note said.
