Centre begins CVC selection process afresh; asks earlier applicants to reapply

THE Centre has decided to begin the process of selecting the new Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) all over again, asking all those who had applied or whose names were sponsored or nominated in response to DoPT's earlier circular dated July 21, 2014, to apply again. The last date of application is now November 5, 2014, meaning the current adhoc arrangement of the CVC would continue at least for two and half months. It is, however, not known why the government…
began the process afresh only after Pradeep Kumar demitted office in the end of September. Currently 1980 batch IAS and DPE secretary Kapil Dev Tripathi is holding the CVC's post as an additional charge. Apart from officers such as IAS, IPS, IFS etc., the CMDs belonging to Schedule ‘A’ Central Public Sector Enterprises and those who have served the company as a whole time director for at least three years, can apply for the post of the CVC.
Also, CEOs of large private sector companies can also apply for the post of the CVC if he has been a director of the company at least for three years, and if he has expertise and experience in “finance including insurance and banking, law, vigilance, and investigation”. Last month, the Supreme Court pulled up the government saying why can't a private person apply for the post of the CVC directly. According to earlier government rules, such a person was to be nominated by a government of India secretary.
The applicants for the post of CVC should be of outstanding merit and impeccable integrity and should have knowledge and at least 25 years of experience in the relevant field. The applicants should not be more than 62 years of age as on January 1, 2015 so that the persons to be considered for selection will get at least 3 years tenure as a Central Vigilance Commissioner or the Vigilance Commissioner, a DoPT circular dated October 13, 2014 said.

  1. first lateral entry on post of vigilance comm is fine. CVC should be someone who has been VC. continuity and commitment to job is important.
    secondly post manned by IPS has been thrown opne to pvt sector what about posts manned by IAS?
