1. 1.1 INTRODUCTION: The System of Performance Appraisal for Board level positions and of executives two levels below the Board level positions for Navaratna and Mini Ratna Companies has been revised by Public Sector Enterprises Selection Board for having uniformity in the Appraisal System. NTPC has accordingly reviewed the existing Appraisal System of senior executive levels. The revised Performance Management System having components of Performance Planning, Monitoring, Review, and Development through involvement of the Appraisee is being introduced. OBJECTIVES: To accomplish organizational goals through a system of performance assessment linked to company's objectives. To facilitate fulfillment of individual aspirations and promotion of professional excellence. To encourage a two-way communication process between the Appraisee and the Reporting Officer for bringing objectivity in Performance Appraisal System. To evaluate the potential of the executive to assume higher responsibilities along the hierarchy. To involve the Appraisee through various stages of Performance Management, thereby reducing the Performance gaps. To map competencies and potential of executives for enabling the organisation to source the talent generally from within the company for meeting organizational growth. To involve the executive to share the responsibility and become accountable for efficient management of the business for result oriented performance through mutual involvement. To provide a transparent system to help each executive to evaluate his own performance and develop himself with the help of Reporting Officer. To provide for removal of differences, if any, in performance appraisal through intervention of the Reviewing Officer. APPLICABILITY: The revised Performance Management System is applicable to all senior executives at the level of E7A and above including Board level. The Performance Management System will also cover senior executives of E7A and above who may join NTPC on deputation or retaining lien while in service of NTPC. However, for Board level Appointees the ‘The Performance Appraisal Report’ as prescribed by PESB is applicable.

The various activities/sub-activities associated with KPAs should be separately discussed including ‘Measures/Standards’ for each of them. optimal utilisation of resources. Functional Head. new project identified may be abandoned and or may be relegated to lower priority after substantial activities undertaken. it is essential to discuss the KPAs. Task Forces. Therefore a separate diary for details and for monitoring periodically is preferred. certain KPAs may lose relevance in spite of the best efforts put in by the appraisee. the KPAs and Measures are assessed and Marks allotted for the 1st half-year.5 7..6. The range of performance measurement could be ‘Good’ which amounts to meeting the ‘Norm’. Corporate Plan.5.

R&M Plans.5. etc. The range of measure for ‘Outstanding’ is a stretch target which could be achieved by best efforts.5. and a new set of KPAs.6 7. at the beginning of 2nd half-year. In addition. at the beginning of the year. 7.8 Therefore. then the appraisee should be assessed based on the results achieved by him.5. These are only indicative. Similarly. allotment of marks should be on a range linked to the extent of achievement of targets whether it is in range of ‘Good’. . ‘Very Good’ would be a range of performance which would be superior to the ‘Norm’ but cannot be classified as ‘Outstanding’.9 7. marks are allotted commensurate with performance level.4 Another source for KPAs are the functional role & responsibility being discharged as Unit Head. against the KPA and fair assessment of KPA may be made and marks awarded judiciously.

Technical Knowledge: 8.1.PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM 7. as well as. Competency based evaluation would help the organisation to take systematic steps for bridging the competency gaps.4 8. PART II: COMPETENCIES: Evaluation of Competencies: The System envisages evaluation of competencies of the executives on two broad categories namely. In case any KPAs lose relevance within three months of the commencement of the relevant half year the same may be replaced by a new set of KPAs by following all the systems provided for evolving KPAs. provided a minimum of 3 months has been spent in the appraisal year.

dislike etc. It is important that one should be aware of the problems that can affect the validity and dependability of the Appraisal System. regional or religious backgrounds. appraisal may become invalidated because of biases carried as an appraiser. 12. Biases may creep in for several reasons such as social background. 13. Some appraisers may resort to this for sometime.1 Implementation of Performance Management System is very sensitive and needs to be done with utmost objectivity.12.5 LENIENCY ERROR: It occurs when the appraiser artificially assigns all or certain group of employees high performance ratings and consequently all or certain scores cluster at the top of the rating scales.7 CENTRAL TENDENCY: It is the tendency of the appraiser to avoid using the extremes of rating scales and to cluster the ratings around the mid point. 13. Difficulties may crop up in its implementation while completing the Form.4 INFLATION OF RATING: It is a tendency to inflate ratings.8 SPILL OVER EFFECT: . HALO EFFECT: It is the tendency to base the overall assessment of an individual on the basis of a specific trait/characteristic of the appraisee.2.0 13. PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM 13.2 13. but some are generally prone to give inflated ratings without giving regard to Performance.6 STRICTNESS ERROR: It occurs when the appraiser artificially assigns all or certain group of employees low performance ratings and consequently all or certain scores cluster at the bottom of the rating scales.1 PITFALLS TO BE AVOIDED: The fact that the Performance Management System is implemented by human beings. 13. bias and other pitfalls that may influence appraisal. 13.3 BIAS: Many a times. 13. Any difficulty or difference that may arise between the Reporting Officer and the Appraisee in the process of implementation of the system needs to be sorted out through mandatory intervention of the immediate Reviewing Officer in the hierarchy. inter-personal conflicts. there is likelihood of prejudice.

15.3 15. 15. PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM 14. This is called recency effect.0 15.It is the tendency of the appraiser to carry in mind the past performance of the appraisee in view while making evaluation on the present Performance. GENERAL: Performance Discussion: 14. remove difficulties and ensure completion of appraisal report and sending to Corporate Centre by 15th May every year. positive and negative aspects.2 The performance discussion calls for creating conducive atmosphere by putting the Appraisee at ease and hence exclusive time and energy is to be spent on this important activity of discussion and feedback.3 The Reporting Officer need to establish rapport with the Appraisee by spending initially 5-10 minutes for discussion on positive aspects. Therefore. The Reporting Officer would facilitate the Appraisee to reflect on the performance and on related issues. 13. PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM 15. 14.1.2 Regional Head and Project Head would facilitate implementation by monitoring progress. The primary responsibility for making available of Performance Appraisal Form and setting the process in motion rests jointly with the Reporting Officer and the Appraisee as per the time frame provided in the System.9 RECENCY EFFECT: Some times the raters assign ratings on the basis of recent behaviour they have seen in their appraisees forgetting about past behaviour over a period.2 FEEDBACK: . active listening is essential. 15.4 The process of performance discussion is to enable the Reporting Officer to gather all possible data with respect to performance viz.0 14. monitoring and retrieval of completed form. understanding the problems faced by the appraisee and actions taken by him for overcoming the same.1.. accomplishments.1 15.

Similarly.2 The developmental needs identified by the Reporting Officer will be shared with the Appraisee and the same would be reflected by him while offering the comments in Part V.1 Providing performance feedback is a delicate matter and the Reporting Officer should lead the performance discussion to create a condition for providing Performance Feedback in the best possible manner. 15. 15.2 The feedback should be focussed on the specific performance actions and not on the personality of the assessee. Therefore regular performance monitoring review and feedback should be carried out during each half year. 15.15.3 SPECIMEN: In order to acquaint the Appraiser and Appraisee with KPAs. feedback should be a regular feature of performance review rather than reserving it for the end of the performance year.3 The continuous feedback based on the facts gathered during the period would provide adequate opportunity to the assessee to take corrective steps during the remaining part of the performance period.2 16.. condition and situations.
