After the J&K issue, the Modi govt is pitted against leftist trade unions now for its drive to transform the white elephant administration into a slim and effective structure. Modi regime plans corporatization of administration and also inducts the private sector into less sensitive and labor-intensive departments. The Narendra Modi government plans to cut deadwood from bureaucracy and invite the private sector to take up less sensitive but labor-intensive sectors of administration. Recently it revived a premature retirement plan for central government employees who have completed 30 years in service or reach 50 years of age after reviewing their performance levels. There was 45 lakh workforce in 88 ministries and 168 departments in Government of India besides a 9 lakh defense force and a whopping 86 lakh pensioners costing the government over ₹ 87 000 crores in annual establishment cost.

In 2014, too, the government moved in order to give a premature retirement option but gave up. In a bid to rid the bureaucracy of “unproductive officers”, the Centre has now decided to review the performance of all class I and Class II bureaucrats on a regular basis. The order has bee issued to all ministries and departments—including the Prime Minister’s Office, President’s Secretariat and Cabinet Secretariat. After the Modi government’s forced retirement of the top 27 tax officials on the grounds of corruption and misconduct concerns have shot up among unions. Every year over one lakh employees retire. A government source says the decision to induct 400 private sector specialists at the middle-level through lateral entry is indicative of a shake-up in the public administration service. The latest DoPT order states that the review process must be in accordance with the orders in 2014, 2015, and 2017. Detailed guidelines for performance review have been given in the previous order, citing various Supreme Court observations. The government plans to reduce the workforce of the central government at the rate of 15-20% per annual gradually and wants to privatize the central government sectors, says, analysts and unionists. In view of recession, the move of privatization and slashing workforce is slowed down but not dropped. Things could begin to shape up, after Dasara and Diwali?
