Sub: Procedure for dealing with DAR case against Group ‘C’ and ‘D’ Staff arising out of Vigilance investigation.
Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. 2006/V-1/Meet/5/1 dated 11.08.2011.
Instructions have already been laid down on the procedure to be followed for dealing with DAR cases against Group ‘C’ and ‘D’ staff arising out of Vigilance investigation, vide this office letters No. 2006/V-1/Meet/6/1 dated 19.07.2006 (RBV No. 13/2006) and 2010/V-1/Meet/5/1 dated 11.08.2011 (RBV No 10/2011). These instructions were also reiterated vide letter No. 2012/V-1/Meet/5/2 dated 18.10.2012 (RBV No. 6/2012) for compliance.
It has now come to notice that in some Railways. the adequacy of the quantum of punishment is also being decided in consultation with Vigilance. lt is clarified that there is no provision in the IR Vigilance Manual for such a practice Hence in cases where the Disciplinary Authority agrees with the advice of the Vigilance Department for imposing a major or minor penalty, there is no further need to consult the Vigilance Department regarding the quantum of the punishment. It may be noted that DA has to apply his/her own mind in each case as per common prudence.
This has the approval of PED/Vigilance.
