He then directed officers to prepare a list of corrupt employees and order voluntary retirement. The UP chief minister also asked the officials to stop the promotion process of corrupt officials and give them voluntary retirement. Ever since Yogi Adityanath took over, he has taken multiple steps to improve the functioning of officials in the government department. Earlier this month, he ordered that no official will be allowed to take any gift including sweets from anybody. Recently, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb made a similar statement that incompetent officials in the government department would be forced to go on retirement. He, however, said that the officials would be provided their due financial benefit. The government always had the power to send the officials on retirement, but recent drive began after Narendra Modi-led government in the Centre sacked 27 IRS officials who were facing charges of corruption.
