Department of Personnel & Training
North Block, New Delhi
Dated the 21st September, 2016
Subject: Extension of tenure of officers working as CVO in CPSEs and other organizations under Ministries/Departments beyond 5 years and upto 7 years.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s letter No. 14017/2/2016- AIS-II dated 27.06.2016, wherein it is circulated that if the administrative Ministries/Departments and other borrowing organizations wish to retain an officer beyond 5 years, they may extend the tenure of deputation covered under earlier deputation guidelines dated 28.11.2007, where absolutely necessary in the public interest, upto a period not exceeding 7 years at a stretch subject to willingness of the concerned officer, cadre clearance from the lending authority/State Government, approval of the UPSC/ACC etc., wherever applicable.
2. In this regard, reference is made in para 5 of the above mentioned letter dated 27.06.2016 which specially states that “cases which are not covered by the O.M. dated 29.03.2012 including those where Central Government is neither a lending authority nor borrowing authority, will continue to be decided in terms of the relevant provisions/rules/instructions etc. governing them.” Since the O.M. No. 20011/2/2010- AIS-II dated 29.03.2012 regarding standard terms and conditions for deputation of All India Services officers under Non-Central Staffing Scheme do not cover the appointment of CVOs in CPSEs etc., the aforesaid letter No. 14017/2/2016-AIS-II dated 27.06.2016 is not applicable for the officers working as Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) in Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSE) and other organizations under Ministries/Departments as the CVOs are governed under the separate guidelines issued by this Department from time to time.
