VIGILANCE Commissioner Suresh N Patel was on Wednesday appointed as the Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC), a year after the post fell vacant. Patel, who has been working as the acting Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) since June this year, was sworn-in as the chief of the probity watchdog Central Vigilance Commission by President Draupadi Murmu at Rashtrapati Bhawan here. PTI had last month reported that Patel’s appointment as the CVC was cleared by a selection committee headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“At a ceremony held today at 1000 hrs at Rashtrapati Bhawan, Shri Suresh N Patel, was sworn-in as the Central Vigilance Commissioner. He made and subscribed the oath of his office before the President,” a communique issued by the Rashtrapati Bhawan on Wednesday said.
The ceremony was also attended by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu. Later in the day, CVC Patel administered the oath of office to former Intelligence Bureau (IB) chief Arvind Kumar and ex-IAS officer Praveen Kumar Srivastava as the Vigilance Commissioners.
With these appointments, the Central Vigilance Commission is in its full strength now. The Commission is headed by a Central Vigilance Commissioner and it can have two Vigilance Commissioners.
