Another bureaucrat sacked after poor performance review
January 18, 2017  20:59
After two IPS officers, it was the turn of a senior IAS officer to get sacked on grounds of non-performance, in a rare action taken by the government in 'public interest'.
 K Narasimha, a 1991 batch IAS officer of Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territories cadre, was served with a 'premature retirement' order without any notice.      

The Appointments Committee of Cabinet approved the decision under Rule 16 (3) of All India Services (Death-Cum-Retirement Benefits) Rules-1958 and allowed him to get three months pay and allowances in lieu of notice, official sources said.
He has been sacked for alleged non-performance and also due to corruption charges against him, they said.
The action came after a departmental review of the officer's service allegedly found him unfit for the job.      

In a similar action, the home ministry had on Tuesday sacked two senior IPS officers for alleged non-performance.
Mayank Sheel Chohan, a 1998 batch AGMUT cadre officer, and Raj Kumar Dewangan, a 1992 batch Chhattisgarh cadre officer, have also been given premature retirement under the same service rules.
