Staff strength to be reduced by two per cent per annum

The central government staff strength would be reduced by two per cent per annum to achieve a target of 10 per cent in five years, Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha announced in Parliament Wednesday.

Presenting the budget for 2001-02, Sinha said all requirements of recruitment to the central government will be scrutinised to limit fresh induction of civilian staff to one per cent. About three per cent staff retire every year.

Other measures include moderate revision of postal rates to help contain rising postal deficit and increase in standard licence fee on government accommodation from April 1, 2001.

He said recommendations of the Expenditure Reforms Commission would be implemented by July 31, 2001 and identified surplus staff transferred to surplus pool.

This pool would be streamlined to re-deploy and retain surplus staff.

It has also been decided to suspend LTC facility to central government employees for two years for the remaining part of the four-year block period except for employees entitled to the last LTC before retirement.
