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.
