JAKARTA. The data of thousands of civil servants working for the Jakarta administration has not been updated in the electronic data collection system ( E-PUPNS ), leading the National Civil Service Agency ( BKN ) to suspect that there are a lot of fictitious employees in the administration, a city official has said.
Previously, BKN head Bima Haria Wibisana said there were 57,724 mysterious civil servants across the country. The number consisted of civil servants from ministries and regional administrations.
Jakarta Employment Agency ( BKD ) head Agus Suradika, however, said there were no such mysteries, as the truth was that the data of 1,848 civil servants had not been updated in the E-PUPNS.
Of that number, 780 employees who are on the BKN’s list have begun their pension, 371 employees have been dismissed honorably, 211 have passed away, 55 have been discharged dishonorably, 27 have been dismissed temporarily and four civil servant candidates have resigned, Agus explained.
There were also 320 employees who were registered with the BKN, but not with the administration, said Agus, adding that those employees might have moved from the administration, but the BKN had not updated its data.
Agus admitted that 68 civil servants had not reregistered in the E-PUPNS, but were still recognized as civil servants and received salaries from the administration. Those civil servants may be dealing with legal matters, meaning they had not registered themselves, he added.
“We found that there are civil servants who are imprisoned or going through legal procedures but have not received a final and binding court ruling,” Agus said, adding that the administration was still obliged to pay a 75 percent salary to such employees.
“There are no fictitious employees in the administration as the agency has complete employment records. The only problem is the updating of employment data between the agency and the BKN,” he explained.
Therefore, the agency would work with the BKN to verify and validate the employment data, Agus added. (Callistasia Anggun Wijaya)
