The Chief Vigilance Officer

The Chief Vigilance Officers are extended arms of the CVC. The Chief Vigilance Officers are considerably higher level officers who are appointed in each and every Department/Organisation to advice the Head of the Department/Organisation in all vigilance matters.

The Chief Vigilance Officer has an important role in effective vigilance administration and functions as an representative of the Commission. While the Commission's jurisdiction is confined to Group 'A' officers and other officials, of and above the level notified, and the Commission's advice is only to the Disciplinary Authority, there is no such restriction on the CVOs role.

The CVOs are required to be consulted by the Disciplinary Authority/Appellate Authority, irrespective of the level of officers involved. Wherever the Appellate Authority has disagreed with the Commission's advice, which was accepted by the Disciplinary Authority, the CVOs should scrutinize the matter carefully to take up the matter with the reviewing authority and also report such cases to the Commission. In respect of officials not under the jurisdiction of the Commission, where the Disciplinary Authority has disagreed with the CVO's advice, such cases should be specifically brought to the notice of the Board.

While CVOs may be consulted by the management in formulating a policy, to provide for necessary checks and balances as a preventive vigilance measure, they should not get involved in decisions in individual cases like works/procurement, etc, having financial implications.

Vigilance Angle

As you are aware, the Commission tenders advice in the cases, which involve a vigilance angle. The term "vigilance angle" has been defined in the Special Chapters for Vigilance Management in the public sector enterprises, public sector banks and public sector insurance companies. The matter with regard to bringing out greater quality and precision to the definition has been under reconsideration of the Commission. The Commission, now accordingly, has formulated a revised definition of vigilance angle as under:
"Vigilance angle is obvious in the following acts: 

  • Demanding and/or accepting gratification other than legal remuneration in respect of an official act or for using his influence with any other official.
  • Obtaining valuable thing, without consideration or with inadequate consideration from a person with whom he has or likely to have official dealings or his subordinates have official dealings or where he can exert influence.
  • Obtaining for himself or for any other person any valuable thing or pecuniary advantage by corrupt or illegal means or by abusing his position as a public servant.
  • Possession of assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
  • Cases of misappropriation, forgery or cheating or other similar criminal offences.

2(a).** There are, however, other irregularities where circumstances will have to be weighed carefully to take a view whether the officer's integrity is in doubt. Gross or willful negligence; recklessness in decision making; blatant violations of systems and procedures; exercise of discretion in excess, where no ostensible/public interest is evident; failure to keep the controlling authority/superiors informed in time - these are some of the irregularities where the disciplinary authority with the help of the CVO should carefully study the case and weigh the circumstances to come to a conclusion whether there is reasonable ground to doubt the integrity of the officer concerned.
