Posted on: 2015-05-14 Posted by: CLAT Gurukul Category: Archive Blog
The Supreme Court gave the go-ahead for the appointment of Central Vigilance Commissioner and a Vigilance Commissioner and asked the government to ensure transparency by providing the high-power selection committee headed by the Prime Minister with names and details of all 130 applicants and not just of those shortlisted by a scrutiny panel of three senior bureaucrats. A Bench led by Chief Justice of India H.L. Dattu passed the order “keeping in view the urgency and importance of the appointments.” Note: Earlier the Supreme Court had quashed the appointment of Chief Vigilance Commissioner PJ Thomas owing to a controversy and the post was empty since then.
