Disciplinary Inquiries Be Completed in Time: CVC12 January, 2017, By Cross Town News
New Delhi, Jan 12: The Central Vigilance Organization has directed all the departments to ensure that such proceedings are completed well in time.
As per rules, a departmental inquiry against a government employee needs to be completed within six months and a final decision has to be taken by authorities in the next two months.
The Commission has observed that the conduct and finalisation of departmental inquiry proceedings are unduly delayed and even after receipt of Inquiry Officer's report, further processing for its consideration and final orders of the respective disciplinary authorities take long time.
Departments have been asked to send details of all such departmental inquires cases pending with them to the CVC by this month.
All departmental inquiries need to be completed in time so that an honest employee is not harassed. The details have been sought as there are instances where inquiries are completed in the stipulated time period but pending final decision.(Input from agencies)
