Still several complaints pending at DVOs, CVOs level

Despite of several directions by Lieutenant Governor of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, still many complaints are left for disposal with the Chief Vigilance Officers/Departmental Vigilance Officers of various government departments and Public Sector Undertakings.

There are many departmental Vigilance Officers which are yet to be appointed in many government departments and Public Sector Undertakings strictly as per the guidelines of the Central Vigilance Commission.

Lieutenant Governor during the launch of mobile application “Satark Nagrik” and Departmental Vigilance Officers portal of the J&K Anti-Corruption Bureau on January 7 this year, had pointed the need for prompt disposal of complaints being brought to the notice of Chief Vigilance Officers/Departmental Vigilance Officers.

Huge pile of complaints is pending in Anti-Corruption Bureau and General Administration Department, for disposal with the CVOs/DVOs since long time, reportedly.

The main reason behind this is that no time-frame has been fixed so far for the CVOs and DVOs for the disposal of complaints and submission of reports either to the General Administration Department or to the Anti-Corruption Bureau. Moreover, the General Administration Department tracks only those cases which are received from the Anti-Corruption Bureau and Crime Branch for departmental enquiries by the CVOs/DVOs while as the concerned Heads of the Departments are supposed to ascertain the status of complaints from the CVOs/DVOs of their respective departments, reportedly.
