SummaryAt present, both UPSC and CVC were being consulted for second stage advice.

The Central Vigilance Commission on Friday decided do away with second stage consultation, a process of taking advice before imposing punishment on a corrupt official, and directed all enquiries should be done at one go.

The commission is being consulted at two stages in vigilance cases or disciplinary proceedings — first advice is obtained on the investigation reports and then advice is obtained before a final decision is taken at the conclusion of the proceedings.

At present, both UPSC and CVC were being consulted for second stage advice.

“In order to ensure speedy finalisation of disciplinary matters and to avoid possibilities of difference of opinion between UPSC and CVC, it has been decided as a policy to prescribe only one consultation (either with UPSC or with the CVC),” an official order issued on Friday said.
