Supreme Court Fire CVC


The Supreme Court today  quashed the appointment of P.J. Thomas as Central Vigilance Commissioner.

In its verdict the apex Court observed that the high-powered Committee’s recommendation on appointment of Mr. Thomas “does not exist in law”.

The committee, for whatsoever reason, failed to consider relevant material recommending action against Mr. Thomas, the verdict states.

The Court also rejected Government’s contention that vigilance clearance given by the CVC in 2008 was the basis for empanelment of Mr. Thomas as a candidate for the post of CVC.

The committee and no government authority focussed on larger issue of institutional integrity of the office of CVC while recommending the name of Thomas.


 Thanking  raj kumar makkad sir.
