Lucknow: The Yogi Aditynath government, which has taken several initiatives aimed at bringing more transparency in the governance, is planing to retire non-performing and tainted officers and employees of the state government.

According to a Times of India report, the Yogi Adityanath is also believed to be compiling a list of the worst performing and corrupt babus so that action can be taken against them.

UP Chief Secretary Rajive Kumar is believed to have written a letter to all additional chief secretaries, principal secretaries and heads of departments in the state in this regard.

In his letter, Kumar has set a deadline of September 15 for identifying these officers and employees and putting them on the list for compulsory retirement.

The move to compulsorily retire the non-performing officers and employees comes at a time when the state government has decided to get rid of some senior officials who got service extension after retirement during the previous Akhilesh Yadav government. 

In the letter, Kumar also claimed that he ''directed" to get a department-wise list of non-performing employees as soon as possible.

The list, according to sources, will be prepared on a set of seven parameters, including employees who are 50-year-old and above, those found fit for compulsory retirement and employees who have already been given compulsory retirement. 

Firebrand UP CM has been expressing displeasure publicly about corrupt and inefficient officials hindering development and public welfare projects undertaken by state government.
