Study of vigilance cases by CVC

The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) had constituted a committee to conduct a study of the existing pattern of prolonged Disciplinary Proceedings and suggestion for Remedial Action on 17.6.2015. The committee conducted the study based on samples of disciplinary cases advised by the Commission to find out the delays in various stages of disciplinary cases. The committee concluded that on an average, it takes about 8 years for finalizing a major vigilance case from the date of occurrence of irregularity.

The Commission has, in pursuance of the report, reviewed the position with each department and PSU case-wise and sensitized them on the need to finalize these cases expeditiously and in a few cases of inordinate delays advised them to fix responsibility of the officer concerned (Inquiry Officer) and to take action against them also. The Commission has also taken up with the individual Chief Vigilance Officers (CVO) of the Ministries/ Departments/Organisations concerned on the need for expeditious finalization of disciplinary proceedings. CVC is also monitoring the pendency of disciplinary cases by sending alerts through SMSs and E-mail to the concerned CVOs.

This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri Ranjib Biswal in the Rajya Sabha today.
