Adityanath directed officers to prepare a list of corrupt employees and suggested they should be forced to take voluntary retirement, it said.

He asked the officials to take firm action against the corrupt employees, stop their promotion process and give them voluntary retirement.

He underlined the need to speed up the work of e-office system and directed officials to take appropriate actions on issues related to promotion, filing up the vacancies and retirement of the employees.
