The government employees are appointed through a screening done by PCS by conducting a written examination and an interview. This is supposed to select capable candidates. However, we know several other adjustments take place in the selection procedure which result in the inclusion of incapable candidates in the final list. But once such persons are in the common man has to suffer.
(a) During early seventies, every year more than ten thousand LDCs were appointed in different Central Govt. offices (excluding railways). When I joined Government service in late eighties, around five thousand LDCs used to be appointed in Central Government every year. Since 2004, no LDC is being appointed in Government service. Xerox machine and computer have brought this change.
(b) The employees who joined Central Government since 1.1.2004, Government does not provide pension. A man named Chidambaram has harmed the employees. This great man also tried his level-best to stop medical facilities for Government employees.
(c) There is nothing called 'lay-off' for Government employees, the concept of lay-off is applicable in factories and commercial establishment. Government employees don't work in commercial establishments. But have you heard about suspension, compulsory retirement, dismissal and removal from service?
The grass is not very green on the other side!
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
