Govt sets the ball rolling for appointing new CVC

The government set the ball rolling for appointing a new person as the head of the top anti-corruption watchdog by writing to all Ministries, Departments and PSUs to suggest names for it.



New Delhi: A month after the removal of
controversial P J Thomas as Central Vigilance Commissioner
(CVC), the government on Wednesday set the ball rolling for
appointing a new person as the head of the top anti-corruption
watchdog by writing to all Ministries, Departments and PSUs to
suggest names for it.

The action came after the Prime Minister`s Office
approved the guidelines prepared for appointing CVC following
a Supreme Court directive.

"We have sent a letter to all Ministries, Departments and
PSUs asking them to suggest names for the CVC," Secretary in
the Department of Personnel and Training Alka Sirohi said.

The move was necessitated after the Supreme Court had
last month quashed the appointment of Thomas as CVC since he
was facing corruption case.
