New Delhi, Aug 4 IANS | 1 month ago

The Supreme Court Monday issued notice on a plea seeking that the selection of CVC should be done unanimously and not by majority and in a transparent manner by inviting applications.


An apex court bench of Chief Justice R.M. Lodha, Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman issued the notice after senior counsel Ram Jethmalani urged the court for a direction to this effect.

The petition said that for being appointed as the CVC or a Vigilance Commissioner, a candidate must have experience in the area as provided in the Lokpal and Lokayukta Act, 2013. At present there is no such requirement.

Holding that provisions of CVC Act 2013, relating to the appointment of CVC and Vigilance Commissioner were arbitrary and in breach of the Article 14 - equality before the law, the petition said that there was no transparency in making the appointment of a CVC or a Vigilance Commissioner.
