It has come to the notice of the CBDT that the officers, even after giving notice for VRS, continue to take decisions of sensitive nature. The Centeral Vigilance Commission(CVC) has taken a serious view of this practice. It is, therefore, decided by the Board that an officer who has submitted, his/her application for voluntary retirement from service (VRS) should take decisions of sensitive nature, if any, with the approval of next higher authority.
2. This issues with the approval of Chairperson, CBDT.
