If the Civil Services Bill becomes an Act in its current form, the IAS and IPS officers will see a big change in the way they’re allowed and expected to work. The bill aims to ensure minimum fixed-tenure postings of three years for the babus and also to protect them from political interference in their day-to-day functioning. The proposed legislation will also put in place a different kind of performance evaluation system which will rate the employees on their job specific achievements and the number of tasks they perform as a peam leader in a particular department. At the moment the bureaucrats are on the basis of annual confidential reports which take an overall view of their work during the year. It remains to be seen if these reforms will finally be implemented and whether they help the Indian Civil Service to improve its notorious reputation.
