IT is the continuous endeavor of the Government to upgrade the infrastructure, office automation systems and buildings of the CBI Offices, Academy & Training Centers and to provide facilities for capacity building for CBI Officers and staff. To achieve this objective, inter alia , the following measures have been taken:
CBI has full functional autonomy under the Delhi Special Police Act, 1946, as amended by the Central Vigilance Commission Act, 2003 and has the requisite authority under the law for investigation and prosecution purposes. With the enactment of the Central Vigilance Commission Act, 2003 the superintendence over the functioning of the CBI in so far as it relates to the investigation of offenses alleged to have been committed under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 now vests with the Central Vigilance Commission.
The Hon’ble Chief Justice of India has written to the Union Law Minister about the pendency of a large number of CBI cases for trial, and has suggested that additional Special Courts may be set up to deal with these cases. The Government has decided to set up 71 additional Special Courts for CBI cases throughout the country.
