Asian Age April 2

The Central Vigilance  Commissioner, Mr. Nagraj Vittal, said on Sunday that he was not personally happy with the recommendations of a Joint Parliamentary committee seeking to make it mandatory for the CVC to take permission from the government before conducting inquiry or investigations against officers of the rank of joint secretaries or above.

He, however, added that through it was an attempt to erode the autonomy of the institution, he would dutifully comply with the directives from the government.

He said, “ I am not happy with the decision of the government to accept the report’s recommendations. However, being a public servant, I would accept the decision with humility.”
