Over 110 officers from IAS and IPS are facing trial on criminal charges in CBI cases, the government said today.
In a written reply to Rajya Sabha, Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Prithviraj Chavan said 84 IAS officers and 33 IPS officers are "facing trial on criminal charges in CBI cases as on March 31, 2010."
Twenty-one cases are being investigated against IAS and six against IPS officers by CBI as on March 31, he said.
The minister said 15 IAS officers and one IPS officer are being investigated by the CBI under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
Chavan said the government has taken several steps to restore public confidence in IAS and IPS officers.
"These include speedy trial of corruption cases through setting up of special CBI courts, conducting disciplinary proceedings against the delinquent officers in a time bound manner, inculcating appropriate values, introducing mid-career mandatory training programme for IAS officers, recognising and rewarding good performers by instituting the PM's awards of excellence," Chavan said.
