The government has taken disciplinary action against 133 non-performing officers, Union minister Jitendra Singh said today. The action is part of a review being conducted by the central government to check deadwood in its workforce. Compulsory retirement was given to an IAS officer in 2015, he said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha. “Necessary provisions have been invoked/recommended in the case of 30 Group A and 103 Group B officers till May 2017,” the minister of state for personnel said.  In 2014, a graft-tainted IAS couple — Arvind and Tinoo Joshi — in Madhya Pradesh were dismissed from service, four years after an income-tax search on their house led to the detection of disproportionate assets worth Rs 350 crore and recovery of Rs 3 crore in cash.  A service review on a government employee is conducted twice — first after 15 years and again after 25 years of completion of qualifying service.
