It is pertinent to mention that the government has already in the past dispensed with the services of a number of employees by terming them as “deadwood”.

Article 226 (2) allows the government to retire its employees in ‘public interest’ upon completion of 22 years of service or attaining 48 years of age; the Article is essentially meant for the removal of deadwood government employees from the service.
