Retiring officers to write note on their achievements

New Delhi: Central government officers retiring within next six months will have to write a note on their achievements as well as outstanding work done by them as per a new initiative inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh said 'Anubhav' will serve as a platform for retiring employees to showcase achievements made by them during their service tenure.

Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh said ‘Anubhav’ will serve as a platform for retiring employees to showcase achievements made by them during their service tenure.

The Ministry of Personnel has advised officers retiring within a period of six months to leave behind a note or write-up on their achievements as well as outstanding work done by them which could have, according to them, contributed to efficient functioning of the government or any innovation introduced by them which could have led to improvement in work culture.

The initiative has been named as ‘Anubhav’, according to an official release.

Union Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh said ‘Anubhav’ will serve as a platform for retiring employees to showcase achievements made by them during their service tenure.

While the retiring employees can look back with satisfaction and a sense of fulfillment, the written account left by them could serve as a vital database for future improvement, he said.

Ministry of Personnel has, through a circular dated November 5, sought to reiterate and remind all the ministries and departments to follow up this initiative seriously.

Singh said initially this facility is available only to retiring central government employees including Central Secretariat Service and Central Secretariat Stenographers Services officials.

Earlier, on the advice of the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Personnel had introduced a new practice of senior IAS officers who had put in nearly 25 to 30 years of service to revisit the place of their first posting as district collectors or SDMs and furnish feedback about the change over the years as visualised by them.

The DoPT and the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances are in fact the research and development organs of the government and not merely responsible for carrying out only transfers, promotions and empanelments.

To this extent, Singh expressed satisfaction that during the last 17 months of the present government, a number of new reforms have been introduced with regard to recruitment in Services, Pension Department, IAS/Civil Services training and other areas.
