(TO BE ANSWERED ON 15.12.2022)

RETIRED OFFICERS WITH MINISTRIES/AUTONOMOUS BODIES

1077 SHRI K.R.N. RAJESHKUMAR:

Will the PRIME MINISTER be pleased to state:

(a) whether retired Civil Service administrative officers are working with various Ministries or Autonomous bodies in key decision making roles;

(b) if so, the details of the personnel, roles and Ministries;

(c) the reason for the extension of their tenure; and

(d) by when these roles/positions will be offered to the experienced, deserved, and non-retired Civil Service administrative officers?

ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF PERSONNEL, PUBLIC GRIEVANCES AND PENSIONS AND MINISTER OF STATE IN THE PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE (DR. JITENDRA SINGH)

(a) to (d): Keeping in view the exigencies of work, Ministries/Departments may hire professionals or consultants for a specific job, not against a regular post. Some retired senior Civil servants having expertise and eminence are also appointed as Consultants/Advisors with a view to achieve certain specified public policy objectives.

As the respective Ministries/ Departments are authorised to engage consultants, no centralised data is maintained.

As the Consultants/Advisors are not to be engaged against regular posts, it is not likely to affect the morale of non-retired Civil Service administrative officers. Moreover, they bring expertise with them which only improves the overall efficiency of the Government.
