Kolkata: CBI Special Director A P Singh
today said shortage of staff is one of the main reasons for
delay in investigations in different cases.
"CBI is functioning with 50 per cent of required staff
which is delaying investigations," Singh told reporters here.
Asked about the main reason for the shortage, Singh said
"though in CBI the staff gets 25 per cent more salary, people
don`t want to leave their home states. IPS officers are also
reluctant to join the central cadre."
He said the agency was thinking of posting people in
"We are also thinking of a separate incentive pattern
which might attract more people to CBI," he said.
The CBI was also mulling technical and forensic labs in
each zone which would reduce the investigation period.
"There is so much pressure that it takes nine to ten
months for reports to come, but if we can create one
(technical and forensic labs) in each of the 16 zones then we
think we can reduce the time of investigation," Singh added.
The Centre has also decided to allot 71 additional courts
dedicated to CBI-related cases, he added.
