Dear Chief Secretary,

Nominations of officers are invited for appointment on deputation to the posts of Chief Vigilance Officers in Central Public Sector Enterprises etc. It may be noted that these posts are Non-Central Staffing Scheme posts.

The guidelines are, however, under revision.

4.    Details of vacancies of Chief Vigilance Officers in Central Public Sector Enterprises etc. that are presently available and likely to- arise during the financial year 2014-15 are available on this Department's web-site. However, a tentative list of vacancies is enclosed.

The officers sponsored for Joint Secretary level posts should be – (a) empanelled to hold joint Secretary level post at the Centre: OR (b) an officer of his service and batch should be empanelled to hold joint Secretary level post at the centre. The officers sponsored for Director level posts should have completed 14 years of Group A service and should have been granted the Non – Functional Selection Grade in the cadre.

6. It may please be ensure that the officers sponsored should have completed the required “cooling off” period before they are recommended for a second deputation. The officers once sponsored are not allowed to withdraw subsequently and it will be the responsibility of the cadre controlling authorities to ensure the release of the officers in the event of their final selection. Failure to take up the appointment on the part of the officers will lead to debarment for 5 years along with its attendant consequences. It is also pointed out that it is not only the failure to take up the appointment, but also withdrawal after a panel has been drawn up by the Department, that leads to debarment for 5 years. It is, therefore, important that only applications of willing officers are forwarded to this Department.

7. On Selection, the officer would be eligible for an initial deputation tenure of 3 years in a CPSE/organization which is extendable – (a) up to a further period of two years in the same CPSE/organization (total 5 years) or (b) up to a further period of three years on transfer to another CPSE/organization on completion of initial tenure of three years in the previous CPSE/organization  (total 6 years), with the prior clearance of the CVC & Department of Personnel & Training. He would be allowed the option of electing to draw either the pay of the post in the scale of pay of the CPSE/Organization concerned or pay in the parent cadre plus deputation (duty) allowance thereon plus personal pay, if any. The officer would also be entitled to all perks, benefits & perquisites applicable to equivalent level of officers in the concerned CPSE/Organization.

8. The Officer on appointment to the post of Chief Vigilance Officer in Central Public Sector Enterprises is not entitled to general pool accommodation but would be eligible for accommodation provided by the concerned  public Sector Enterprise, as per guidelines issued by the Department of Public Enterprises, from time to time.

9. If an officer does not join within one month of issue of his appointment order, his appointment would be treated as cancelled and the officer concerned would stand debarred from Central deputation for a period of five years from the date of issuing of orders of his appointment. Further, the officer would also be debarred from being considered for deputation on foreign assignments/consultancies abroad during the period of debarment. The officers who are debarred from Central deputation should not be sponsored for consideration for these posts till they complete their debarment period/become eligible for re-consideration.

However, the officer may be posted at any place in India. It has been noticed in the past that while sponsoring names, preference has been shown for a particular CPSE/Organization in a particular region. It is clarified that such requests cannot be entertained and officers are required to indicate only their options for place of postings. Officers sponsored will remain under consideration for posting for the period of one year only from the date of clearance of the Central Vigilance Commission or 31st March, 2015, whichever is earlier.
