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.
