  1. C.Jyoti says:

    Shri Nisban seems to be totally unaware of these facts:

    (1) The CBI cannot proceed against any IAS, IPS, IFS (both foreign and forests) IA&AS and CSS officers of the rank of Dy. Secretary/Director without clearance of the proposal by the concerned SECRETARY and the Minister of the Ministry/Deptt/CAG, as the case may be.

    (2) In the case of Addl. Secretaries and Secretaries, there is NO provision for any CBI inquiry at all.

    (3) As CBI has no authority, so CVC also has no locus standi in the cases of these officers. [Moreover, CVC is constituted of IAS officers.]

    (4) For personal staff of Ministers, it is the prerogative of the Minister alone and hence, even if there were/are vigilance cases against serving and retired officers selected by a Minister, no further action can be taken against such officers.

    These are the unwritten rules and the convention.

    And, as far as publication of photographs of corrupt officers, this will go against the Human Rights Laws and PUCL, etc., will certainly agitate against such “inhuman” action of the CVC, though the corrupt are in fact not “minority” but the majority in the entire govt. admn., including municipalities/autonomous bodies, etc.

  2. Nisban says:

    How many of the rank of Secretaries to the govt., how many of the OSDs/APSs/PSs/PAs, etc., to ministers-including retired govt servants brought in into personal staff of ministers?
    Why not publish photographs of these great patriots?
