CVC Act 2003

    The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) was set up by the Government of India in 1964 as per the recommendations of Santhanam Committee. CVC acts as an Apex Body for vigilance matters. It is a multimember body consisting of a Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) and two VC (Vigilance Commissioner). The CVC and VC are appointed by the President of Indiaon the recommendations of a committee consisting of the Prime Minister (Chairperson), the Minister of Home Affairs (Member) and the Leader of Opposition in the House of the People (Member).

    The Commission was accorded statutory status with effect from 25.8.1998.

    The CVC Bill was passed by both Houses of Parliament in 2003 and the President gave assent on 11th September 2003. Thus, the Central Vigilance Commission Act, 2003 (No.45 of 2003) came into effect from that date.

    CVC is not an investigation Agency. It works through either CBI or through Vigilance Departments of Organisations.

IP and IEM
  • Integrity Pact (IP) is aimed at preventing corruption and ensuring integrity in Public Procurement. The Central Vigilance Commission is the nodal authority for the implementation of IP in India.
  • Integrity Pact shall be applicable for procurements above Rs.2 Crores. The pact essentially envisages the agreement between prospective vendors/bidders and buyers committing the persons / officials of both the parties not to exercise any corrupt influence on any aspect of the contract. Only those vendors/bidders who enter into such an integrity pact with the buyer would be competent to participate in the bid.
  • The CVC has nominated Independent External Monitors (IEMs) to monitor implementation of IP.
