    New Delhi: For the first time, the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has put out on its website a list of 123 government officials it wants penalised or prosecuted for corruption. The list was compiled in July. Until now, the CVC hadbeen making public only the number of allegedly corrupt officials, not their names.

    The cabinet secretary, sources say, has asked secretaries in various ministries to not delay sanction for the prosecution of corrupt officials, warning that the CVC would make public the names of the officials shielded by their departments.
    The names ofthe 123 officialswere released in the first lot: the CVC had advised major penalty or recommended prosecution sanction against them.
    Major penalty has been advised against 101 babus, including senior officers. The Delhi Development Authority, which looks after land development in the capital, has the highest number of officials on the list -- 13 -- followed by 12 from the State Bank of India.
    Major penalty has also been recommended against nine officials each from the ministry of railways and the New India Assurance Company Ltd. ONGC has 11 officials on the list.
    The CVC has advised "issuance of sanction for prosecution" against the remaining 22.
    These include four IPS officers posted with the ministry of home affairs, seven from the Central Board of Direct Taxes and two from the Indian Forest Service. Sources said the CVC is now working on updating the list with the names of officials whose departments have not yet granted sanction for prosecution or from whom the recommended penalties have not been recovered. The updated lists would soon be put out on the website as part of the commission's fight against corruption.
    Last week, chief justice KG Balakrishnan and law minister Veerappa Moily had expressed concern about the delay in sanction to prosecute corrupt officials.

    I am surprised to see a Nationalised Bank like SBI there at the top.More to the surprise no other bank is there in the top 10 or so .How come it is possible only with SBI.It is a shame they have guarded such culprits by not revealing their names till now.

    NEW DELHI: The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has put out a list of 123 government officials on its website on Thursday, whom the commission
    wants to penalize or prosecute for corruption charges.

    This is for the first time that the CVC has made public the name of corrupt officials. Until now, the Commission had been making public only the number of corrupt officials.

    The list of officials against whom the action is pending was reportedly compiled in July.

    On its website, the CVC stated that: "In furtherance of the transparency initiatives and the spirit of the RTI Act 2005, the Central Vigilance Commission has decided to regularly post info / details of cases pending for sanctions for prosecution over four months with organizations / departments.

    "Cases where the Commission has advised issuance of sanction for prosecution during the month and Cases where Commission had advised imposition of suitable major penalty during the month," the website states.

    Until now, the CVC had been making public only the number of corrupt officials, not their names.

    Earlier it was reported that the Union Cabinet Secretary has asked the Secretaries of various ministries not to delay sanction for the prosecution of corrupt officials.

    Delhi Police man gets two year RI for seeking bribe

    New Delhi, Sep 23 (PTI) A court today sentenced a suspended Delhi police Sub Inspector to two years rigorous imprisonment for seeking a bribe of Rs 1,000 from a man for not implicating him in a murder case.

    Special CBI Judge Pradeep Chaddha also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on Raj Kumar after holding him guilty under various provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

    Kumar, the then SI who was posted with Badarpur police station, was arrested by CBI's anti-corruption branch sleuths on January eight, 2003, in a trap while taking the bribe money from complainant Rajesh Goel.

    Goel, who used to run a mini bus from South Extension to Gautampuri here, was asked to visit the police station on a day before January seven after he picked up a quarrel with another bus operator.
