RTI Foundation of India

32 CBI officers found guilty of corruption in last three years 10 Aug, 2013 An application was filed with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) under the Right to Information (RTI) Act seeking to get the details about the officials in the department found guilty of corruption or human rights violation and the action taken against them. The reply to the query shows that action was taken against 32 officials in the last three years for their involvement in different cases of corruption. The list provided in the reply shows that six persons were found guilty of corruption in 2010, 17 in 2011 and 9 in 2012. In 2013, as yet two officers have been found guilty on corruption charges. The reply shows that departmental action against those found guilty included warning them, punishment and also transfer to different departments. However, it also shows that a few guilty officers were penalised monetarily. The vigilance cell of CBI also provided some information about details of those complaints which resulted in departmental action against CBI personnel. However, other cells of CBI didn't provide any information on personnel with charges of corruption or human rights violation. 

CBI acted against 21 staff in last 3 years, reveals RTI

10th August 2013 10:31 AM
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken action on as many as 21 staff posted with the agency on charges of various acts of omission and commission on the basis of complaints, an RTI reply has revealed.
According to the information available, in 2010, the CBI took action against six staff members while in 2011 it issued warnings to 10 of its officials. The action was prompted by an anonymous complaint against SP of Anti-Corruption Bureau in Kolkata, S R Majumdar and other staff members.
In 2011, the agency acted against seven of its staff, including two officers attached with its Anti-corruption Bureau in Bangalore, information received in response to an RTI query filed by Subash Agarwal revealed.
In 2012, the agency transferred then Imphal SP Ganesh Verma, DSP LT Salu and two other staff members. In the same year, a preliminary inquiry was registered against Director of Central Forensic Science Laboratory R S Dangi. In all, the CBI took action against eight of its staff in 2012. In 2013, acting on a complaint, the CBI repatriated Inspector Pawan Kumar attached with the Anti-corruption Bureau in Chandigarh to his parent department, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, and terminated the service of one programmer. In May, Vivek Dutt, an SP-level officer attached with the CBI at its headquarters in Delhi was arrested on charges of bribery.
Speaking to Express after Dutt’s arrest, CBI Director Ranjit Sinha had remarked, “It is good that we could identify and track a bad apple in our system.” When asked whether such cases send a strong message and keep the organisation clean, Sinha said he was happy that the agency was successful in identifying the officer who was engaging in such activities. Agarwal claimed that most units of the CBI were not providing information relating to corruption and human rights violation, issues which are not exempted under Section 24 of the RTI Act for exempted organisations, including the CBI which is listed in the second schedule of the Act
What I feel :---------------------------------
If Government is bent upon rewarding corrupt officials , corrupt ministers and corrupt politicians, they should at least stop wasting money on existence and on functioning of CBI . It is often observed that CBI is working as a caged parrot and it is even substantiated by Supreme Court and in such position it is desirable to totally dismantle CBI so that entire and unbridled powers comes in the hands of politicians. 
There will be no criminals  (at least loyal leaders of Sonia Gandhi and that of Congress Party and its supporters of their party) in the eye of politicians and they need not make effort for amending Constitution to nullify Supreme Court order aginst Criminals fighting election. It will not be necessary then for the government to have RTI or amended RTI to save political parties  because they do not want to act against even criminal and when it proves to be futile exercise when one waste time in seeking information under RTI and then Government refuses to accept it or act upon it.

If government is not in a position to provide adequate liberty and enough manpower to CBI officials to proceed their investigation exercise honestly , sincerely and in a unbiased way, I think it is a avoidable liability on the government and hence the expenses on CBI should be stopped and the same may be used by ruling Congress Party on Food Security Bill at least to serve their dream of winning election.

It is open secret that cases against powerful officers and politicians handed over to CBI are never allowed to be decided and CBI is not free to impose punishment to such VIPs . Decades pass away but VIP are never punished.Government can trap persons like Ramdeo or anti-Congress  persons on any flimsy charges by using other legal weapons and hence unnecessary  debate by media on misuse of CBI or controversy on CBI or that on formation of Jan Lokpal Bill must be stopped . 

And finally congress Party should rename it as Corrupt Party of India.
