I have read somewhere that in certain departments where there is very good extra income, there are employees who have not taken even a single day casual rule in their entire career spanning over up to 40 years. At the same time in other departments, where there is no extra income, no stone is left unturned for remaining absent from duty first by exhausting all kinds of leave followed by unauthorised absenteeism.
Today only there was a news report in the morning dailies of Lucknow that the operators of fogging machines are vying with each other for duty because per day there is extra income of 2-3 thousands rupees per head by saving petrol/diesel quota allocated for operating such machines.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
Accountability and the fate of one's job are two important things that positively influence the performance of the firm or a department. The Government departments are also changing because the under performing sector would realize that if the efficiency does not improve then there would be the threat of privatization and loss of jobs.
There are many examples of similar situations wherein lack of accountability has led to the slow demise of the great public sector industries. Take for instance the fall of the Maharajaha of India 'Air India'. I wish the banking sector had such rules.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
