The usual garlanding and samosa- chai parties aside, retiring central government employees can now mark their going out of service with a dossier of their achievements and initiatives which would be showcased online to inspire their peers.
In a unique initiative, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has mooted a proposal for creating a "platform to showcase the significant achievements" of civil servants which they can look back on at the time of retirement with "satisfaction and a sense of fulfilment".
Under the voluntary scheme, employees who are retiring in the next six months will be provided with an online facility to submit a list of their outstanding achievements.
The said employees will be asked to give details as to commendable work done by them, their achievements and new ideas given by them which contributed to the efficiency, economy and effectiveness of government functioning.
The commendable work defined by DoPT includes innovation leading to improved work culture and creation of manuals and publications related to work.
The write-ups thus submitted will be displayed on the DoPT website to serve as a "motivator for serving employees".
The government has, however, clarified that comments which are religious or political in nature or against national interest will not be permitted.
"The exercise would be completed at least one month before retirement and the result uploaded on the departmental website. While an online system will be designed for this purpose, it would be possible for employees to submit hard copies instead of going online," states the circular in this regard.
The retiring employees have also been asked to remember to mention where relevant the contribution of the entire team along with the names of their team members.
