Sub: Short term arrangements in the post of CVO-regarding.
It has come to the notice of the Central Vigilance Commission that para 2.8.1 in the Vigilance Manual (updated 2021) does not reflect on short term arrangement for such posts of CVO which are NOT filled by the DoPT. Besides this, it also does not provide for relaxation to appointing authorities from prior consultation with the Commission while making administrative arrangements for not more than three (03) months.
2. In order to bring out clarity in this regard, and restore relaxation to administrative Ministries/Departments for short-term arrangements, the Commission has decided to replace para 2.8.1 of the Vigilance Manual (updated 2021), by para 2.8.1 of Vigilance Manual 2017 which reads as under:
“2.8.1 Suitable arrangements in vacancies for not more than three months may be made by the appropriate authority concerned, without prior approval of the Commission. The nature and duration of vacancy and the name of the officer who is entrusted with the duties of CVO should, however, be reported to the Commission.”
3. All concerned are requested to take cognizance of restoration of para 2.8.1 of Vigilance Manual 2017 in place of para 2.8.1 of Vigilance Manual (updated 2021). It is also clarified that the administrative ministries/departments, which make appointment against the posts of CVO, will continue to decide extension of tenure of incumbents beyond three months in consultation with the Commission.
4. This issues with the approval of the Central Vigilance Commissioner.
