Government employees facing criminal or corruption cases are under a scanner of the Modi administration which is in the process of weeding out bad elements from the bureaucracy as part of efforts to ensure high integrity and standards.

Since June this year, shortly after the Modi government took charge for the second term, at least 64 employees, including commissioner-rank officers, have been compulsorily retired by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on various charges, including corruption.
More such actions are expected in the future as the central government is reviewing the annual confidential reports and other details of its employees, particularly those facing criminal or corruption cases, officials said.
The Central government has asked all the Cadre Controlling Authorities to establish a mechanism to identify the "dead wood" and compulsorily retire them after thorough examination of their service records.
"The Centre has written to states to prepare a list of officers who are facing charges of misconduct or allegations of corruption," a senior officer said.

The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, which is the cadre-controlling authority for the IAS officers, is also preparing a list of tainted officers for their removal from service in a phased manner.

A similar exercise is being carried out by the Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of External Affairs.

The officer said if need be, the service rules can be amended or administrative instructions may be issued for removing such tainted officers.

"A list has been prepared by most of the ministries and also by the Cadre-Controlling Authorities and names will be announced in a phased manner," said the officer.
