"Such officers/employee will not be allowed to rejoin government service. The competent authority concerned will issue immediate orders to terminate the services of these absentees as per the rules, failing which the authority concerned will be held responsible," a government spokesman said.
The Finance Department has issued instructions in this regard.
He said the strict action has been contemplated to enforce discipline in offices, so that there is no disruption in delivery of public services due to absentee staff.
In some cases, absentee employees have even settled abroad after availing of permanent residency and citizenship of other countries, but have not resigned from their government jobs.
