The CVC has asked banks and central government departments to expedite disciplinary proceedings against officials involved in alleged corruption cases especially those who are about to retire shortly. It was noticed that some cases of alleged corruption do not get disposed of even until the retirement of an accused public servant.

 

The CVC has been writing to the government departments since 2007 on the issue to ensure that the accused officers are brought to justice in time. The most recent letter in this regard was written in July 2019. It had specifically impressed upon the vigilance functionaries as well as administrative authorities concerned the need to prioritize their activities of conducting investigations and completion of disciplinary action well in advance so as to avoid late reference to the Commission.

 

It was also conveyed that all such retirement cases should be received by the first week of the month of superannuation of the officer(s) concerned. A directive in this regard was issued to secretaries of central government departments and the chairman and managing directors of public sector banks, undertakings and autonomous organizations.
