CVC presents its annual report to President

The Central Vigilance Commission, investigating the multi-crore Commonwealth Games scam, has submitted its annual report to President Pratibha Patil, which will be tabled in Parliament.



New Delhi: The Central Vigilance Commission,
investigating the multi-crore Commonwealth Games scam, has
submitted its annual report to President Pratibha Patil, which
will be tabled in Parliament.

Officials said that the report carried details of probe
undertaken by the anti-corruption watchdog between January and
December 2010.

"The report has been given to the President late last
month and it will be tabled in the Parliament," a CVC official
said.

However, the official did not divulge details on the
content of the report saying it will be a "breach of
Parliament".

The report was given to the President on June 30 by its
two Vigilance Commissioners -- R Srikumar and J M Garg -- as
newly selected Central Vigilance Commissioner Pradeep Kumar
has not yet joined the office.

According to the CVC Act 2003, "It shall be the duty of
the Commission to present annually to the President a report
as to the work done by the Commission within six months of the
close of the year under report."

"On receipt of such report, the President shall cause the
same to be laid before each House of Parliament," the Act
said.

The probity watchdog has been busy with investigations
into high-profile cases of corruption in the conduct of the
mega sporting event held here between October 3-14 last year.

It has referred a number of cases to investigate criminal
conspiracy and corruption to CBI against officials of Central
and Delhi Government run civic and construction agencies.

CVC acts as country`s top body to advise Government of
India on anti-corruption and takes necessary action to check
graft.
