Among the presentations, the Prime Minister will be looking upon immediately is the detailed presentation on Performance-Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS) by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT). The PRIS was recommended by Sixth Pay Commission and accepted by the previous UPA government but yet to be implemented. The DoPT is likely to outline the salient features of the scheme aimed at improving governance in its presentation to Modi.
The Prime Minister earlier today had detailed a 10-point agenda for improving the governance. This includes confidence building in the bureaucracy and providing freedom to the employees to work and welcoming new and innovative ideas.
The DoPT sources informed that the detailed guidelines will be put in place after Prime Minister gives his go-ahead for the proposal.
As per the draft guidelines framed during UPA's tenure, performance-related incentive will be payable taking into account the performance of the organization and employees during the period under consideration.
There are about 50 lakh Central government employees.
"PRIS may prove to be a big game changer for improving governance and delivering maximum output. The Prime Minister may incorporate some new features," the official said.
