Administrative Economic Reforms

Certain simple basic administrative reforms  will have great impact on the economy. INDIAN PARTY FOR DEVELOPMENT AND DEMOCRACY(IPDD) is of the view that retirement age of employees in the government and private sector should be increased by 2 years considering also, the increase in the longevity  in India.Central and State Governments need not recruit any employee for two years leading to savings. The governments need not sanction new pension to any employee for two years. This will add to the savings. The government will pay pension for shorter(by two years) periods.

At present fresh Government Clerks, Elementary School teachers, Constables, etc. are drawiing more salary than many fresh software engineers, This is not fair. Since the salaries of existing officials should not be changed to their disadvantage, IPDD is of the view that lower posts of Assistant Clerks, Asst. Teachers, etc. should be created with substantially lower salaries. The present officials should be given higher responsibilities and the new recruits should have the current responsibilities of Clerks etc. The present  posts of Clerks etc.should be promotion posts for new officials. By this way, government can effect savings. Those possessing minimum academic qualifications should be preferred, for those with higher educational qualifications as the latter  may not take the work seriously.

Promotions should be made purely on merit. At present promotion for most of the posts is by seniority and hence officers do not take much interest in their work.

The promotions should be made purely by merit.


Primary Teachers’ training, ITIs- minimum educational qualification

In the past those who passed 8th Standard were admitted in the Teachers’ Training Institutes. After training they were eligible to be posted in schools to teach students in classes 1 to Classes 5. Most of these teachers discharged their duties to the satisfaction of educational authorities and parents. In states like Tamilnadu, 8th passed persons are not admitted to teachers’ training institutes. INDIAN PARTY FOR DEVELOPMENT AND DEMOCRACY is of the view that 8th standard passed candidates should be admitted to teachers’ training institutes. For teachers to teach in classes 6 to 8, the educational qualification can be 12th standard and for those to teach classes 9 and 10, the educational qualification  may be graduation.

Similarly the minimum qualification for admission to Industrial Training Institutes in the past used to be 8th standard for almost all trades. Now it is mostly 10th stabdard or 12th standard. This also should be changed.

Similarly for jobs for which minimum educational qualification is 8th Standard, in some cases graduates are appointed. These officials tend to feel that the job is not commensurate with their qualification and tend to neglect their work.

Automatic compulsory  promotion of students upto 10th standard in some states  is also not good. Every student should study hard and get minimum of 35/50% marks to be promoted to the next higher class.
