CBI registers 600 corruption cases in 2011: Govt
New Delhi: The government on Wednesday said CBI has registered 600 corruption
cases in 2011.
CBI has registered 795 corruption cases in 2009, 650 cases in 2009 and
600 cases in 2011, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances
and Pensions V Narayanasamy told the Lok Sabha.
"During the last three years, CBI has sought sanction for prosecution
of government servants or public servants for offences under various
Acts, including Prevention of Corruption Act from various central
ministries or departments and state government in 1,459 cases,
involving 2,583 government officials," he said.
The minister said CBI was awaiting sanction for prosecution in 39
cases for over three months in various ministries, departments and
"Even though a time limit of three months has been prescribed for
deciding cases of sanction for prosecution, it is sometimes not
possible for the central ministries or departments concerned to adhere
to this time limit.
"The delay is often caused due to detailed analysis of the available
evidence, consultation with CVC, state governments and other agencies,
and sometimes non-availability of relevant documentary evidence,"
In reply to another question, the minister said during 2010 and 2011,
the Central Vigilance Commission has tendered its first stage advice
in 3,424 and 3,144 cases and second stage advice in 1,180 and 1,027
"As per information provided by CVC, it has not received information
about implementation of its first and second stage advices over six
months as on December 31, 2011 in 1,525 and 682 cases respectively,"
