New Delhi: Around 39 IAS officers are alleged to be involved in corruption and irregularities. The matter is being looked in by the Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT). The DOPT acts as a watchdog of the government and is a nodal authority for Indian Administrative Service officers.
Besides the 39 IAS officers, 29 from the Central Secretariat Service are also facing disciplinary proceedings.
Enquiry against these 68 officers has begun on the complaint received against them. Some among the 68 are cemented at a senior level. Reports suggest that the Narendra Modi-led government is conducting a review of its staff. This is being done by the Centre to improve the service delivery and governance system.
It has also undertaken an exercise to review the service records of about 67,000 employees to identify the non-performers.
