Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Ministry of Science and Technology; Minister of State (Independent Charge) Ministry of Earth Science; MoS of Prime Minister’s Office and Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh today released a book and it’s e-Version on 8 Years of Administrative and Pension reforms (2014-2022).
Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said, eight years of administrative and pension reforms under Prime Minister Narendra Modi are aimed at social transformation.

Delivering the inaugural address at a webinar on Administrative Reforms and Pension Reforms (2014-2022) in New Delhi, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the large scale use of technology and integration approach are the twin pillars of both the revolutionary Governance and Pension Reforms carried out in the last eight years.

Dwelling on Pension Reforms, Dr Jitendra Singh said, ever since Narendra Modi came to power in 2014, the Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare had introduced a number of revolutionary reforms including relaxation in the provision of Family Pension for divorced daughters and Divyangs, the introduction of Face Recognition Technology through the mobile app for ease in submitting Life Certificate by elderly pensioners, Electronic Pension Pay Order, assistance from Postal Department to facilitate pension process etc.

He said, moreover steps like an extension of Family Pension to the differently-abled child of a deceased Government employee/Pensioner or giving a major hike in the Family Pension emoluments for Divyang children of a deceased government servant/pensioner are not only pension reforms but these are social reforms having wide implications.

On Administrative Reforms, Dr Jitendra Singh listed several out of the box ideas like abolishing the century-old colonial practice of attestation of documents by a gazetted officer and replacing it with self-attestation, doing away with interviews for Group-B (Non-Gazetted) and Group – C posts in the Central Government since 2016, three-month Central stint for fresh IAS officers as Assistant Secretary, change in the nature of PM Excellence Award and the abolition of around 1450 rules, which have become obsolete.

Referring to Mission Karmayogi’s main mantra of moving from “Rule to Role”, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the Civil Servants must train themselves for a new and challenging assignment as most of the flagship schemes of the Government are now hugely Science and Technology based.

The Minister also released an e-Book on 8 Years’ Achievements of Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare and that of DARPG on the occasion.
