The centre has decided to allow online filing of performance reports of officers from the Indian Administrative Service, Indian Police Service and Indian Forest Service, reported the Economic Times.
The move is expected to help check delayed submission of employees’ confidential report, which often proves to be a stumbling block in matters of promotion.
The draft rules formed by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) say,
Performance Appraisal Report shall be generated and written by the officer reported upon electronically as prescribed by the central government.
Disclosure of such reports, according to the draft rules, is expected to be done by 15 January every year.
A senior DoPT official reportedly said the move falls in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s drive for greater transparency.
