"During the last three years, i.e., 2008, 2009, 2010 and
2011 (upto October), 453 charge sheets have been filed against
IAS, IPS, IFS and Class-I officers of central services," Minister of State for Personnel V Narayanasamy said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha.

The Minister also said while a total of 943 cases are at
different stages of investigation by the CBI till October this
year, the agency is also probing seventy-nine cases of
disproportionate assets.

"According to information furnished by CBI, as on October
31 this year, 167 requests for sanction are pending with
various ministries/departments of government, out of which 68
requests were pending for more than three months.

"Forty-four number of requests were pending with various
state governments as on October 31 out of which 39 were
pending for more than three months," he said.

The delay is often caused due to detailed analysis of the
available evidence, consultation with the Central Vigilance
Commission (CVC), the state governments/other agencies and
sometimes non-availability of relevant documentary evidence
among others, Narayanasamy said.
