Office Order No.04/7/19
Sub.: Expeditious disposal of cases involving public servants due to retire shortly.
The Commission vide its circulars referred to above had directed CVOs of all Ministries/Departments/Organisations to ensure expeditious finalization of disciplinary proceedings/action, particularly in respect of officials likely to retire shortly. The Commission had specially impressed upon the vigilance functionaries as well as administrative authorities concerned the need to prioritize their activities of conducting investigations and completion of disciplinary action well in advance so as to avoid such late references to the Commission. Further, it was also conveyed that such instances of undue delays on part of administrative authorities, in dealing with vigilance matters/disciplinary cases, will be viewed very seriously by the Commission and it would be constrained to take an adverse view of CVOs/Administrative authorities for such avoidable delays.
2. Despite, these instructions, references are still being received in the Commission particularly from CPSUs and Public Sector Banks, after the middle of the month, the officer is due to retire which is not acceptable. The Commission has taken a serious note of such lax attitude on the part of CVOs/DAs and would again reiterate that al such retirement cases should be received by the first week of the month of superannuation of the officer(s) concerned. Cases/references received for advice after the first week of the month would be returned back to the Department/Organization without advice of the Commission and action recommended against the concerned authority (ies).
3. All CVOs/Administrative Authorities should ensure strict compliance to the above instructions.
