Over 450 chargesheets have been filed by CBI against IAS, IPS and other civil servants in the last three years, the government said on Wednesday.
"During the last three years, 453 chargesheets have been filed against IAS, IPS, IFS and Class-I officers of Central services," Minister of State for Personnel V Narayanasamy said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha.
The minister also said while a total of 943 cases are at different stages of investigation by the CBI till October this year, the agency is also probing seventy-nine cases of disproportionate assets.
"According to information furnished by CBI, as on October 31 this year, 167 requests for sanction are pending with various ministries/departments of government, out of which 68 requests were pending for more than three months.
"Forty-four number of requests were pending with various state governments as on October 31 out of which 39 were pending for more than three months," he said.
The delay is often caused due to detailed analysis of the available evidence, consultation with the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), the state governments/other agencies and sometimes non-availability of relevant documentary evidence among others, Narayanasamy said.
