(p.221) Seventeen Post-retirement Placement
Building a World-Class Civil Service for Twenty-First Century India


Oxford University Press

In India, almost all retiring or retired civil servants are offered some post-retirement position in the government. A post-retirement job is usually offered as a blandishment, a practice with serious implications. In particular, it undermines the autonomy of the institution to which a retired/retiring civil servant is assigned. Providing post-retirement placements to civil servants is a pernicious practice that can destroy the moral fibre of the civil service. This chapter looks at institutions in India where a retired/retiring civil servant may find a new job, namely, regulatory commissions, information commissions, and administrative tribunals. Information commissions have been set up as independent appellate authorities with the enactment of the Right to Information Act.

Keywords:   civil servants, regulatory commissions, information commissions, administrative tribunals, Right to Information Act
