Central Vigilance Commission Recommendations


The Central Vigilance Commission tenders its advice on references received from Ministries /Departments/ Organisations against certain categories of public servants under its jurisdiction. After receipt of the advice of the Commission, the disciplinary authorities concerned are the competent authority to take decision in disciplinary cases. It is mandatory on the part of the organizations to seek the Commission’s advice before proceeding further in a matter where earlier a report was called for by the Commission.

The Commission on considering the investigation reports furnished by the Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) or the CBI and depending on the facts of each case and the evidence/records available, advises (a) initiation of criminal and/or regular departmental action (major or minor) against the public servant(s) concerned; (b) administrative action against public servants concerned; or (c) closure of the case and such advices are termed as first stage advice.
