The variable increment for high performer should be extended to all in DRDO irrespective of the cadre to motivate & work together for the interest of the organisation & country.

This is a very good proposal of 6th CPC for inspiring better workers to do best for the department. In Government organisations, there is no PRACTICAL (stress on word "Practical") provision of either reward or punishment. The employees who oppose this proposal of giving performance based increment, are "kamchor" and inefficient employees whom we see in all Government offices. These "kamchor" and inefficient employees are responsible to defame entire Govt. employees fraternity. - S.K.Banerjee, Geological Survey of India
