Corporation to review performance of workers who have attained 48 years of age, completed 22 years of service
Srinagar: Over a month after the government implemented a new rule, the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) is mulling to retire its employees who have attained 48 years of age or 22 years of service.
The retirement of such SMC employees will be done after conducting proper performance review.
Pertinently in October this year, the Jammu and Kashmir government amended Article 226 (2) of the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Service Regulations for a provision to retire at any time any government servant in the public interest after he has completed 22 years of service or attained 48 years of age.
Sources privy to the development told Precious Kashmir that the measures have been taken to retire the SMC employees who have attained 48 years of age or have completed 22 years in service.
“A proper performance review of all such employees will be conducted shortly and the decision to retire any such employee will be taken according to their performance,” reliable sources said.
The SMC will be the first corporation or department to follow the new rules in general. A month after the new rules were implemented, the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (BOSE) last week decided to prematurely retire an employee.
JKBOSE issued a notice to one of its Class-IV employees Fayaz Ahmad Siraj to retire from service as he has completed his 27 years of service on October 14.
The newly elected Mayor of SMC, Junaid Azim Mattoo, also confirmed through his tweet that he is writing to the government to conduct a performance review of all SMC officers and employees who have attained 48 years of age or 22 years of service.
“Seeking enactment of provisions of Article 226(2) of Jammu and Kashmir Civil Service Regulations to weed out deadwood, am writing to the Government to conduct a performance review of all SMC officers and employees who have attained 48 years of age/22 years of service,” Mattoo tweeted.
