Answer – DR. JITENDRA SINGH
(a) to (d): Yes Madam. The Central Vigilance Commission has issued instructions, for effecting rotational transfers of officials posted in each organization, vide letters dated 15.04.1999, 02.11.2001, 01.05.2008, 04.01.2012 and 11.09.2013. As per these instructions, all Ministries/ Departments/ Organizations and CVOs are to identify sensitive posts and staff working in these posts and also ensure that they are rotated after every two/ three years to avoid developing vested interest. As identification of sensitive posts and effecting rotational transfers is a continuous process and CVOs have been made responsible for the same, all Ministries/ Departments/ Organizations are required to comply with the above instructions.
