Strengthening of CBI’S Investigative Framework

New Delhi:(Page3 News Network)-Union Minister of State for Personnel, Shri V.Narayanasamy on the occasion of inauguration of XIX Conference of CBI & State Anti Corruption Bureaux congratulated the CBI
for taking the initiative to host this Conference annually, from this year, instead of once in two years. This would provide a forum for all the agencies engaged in anti-corruption and vigilance work to share their experience and discuss issues which they encounter in tackling corruption, at regular interval. He also congratulated the 15 officials of CBI who have been conferred with prestigious Police medals and awards by the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh for their distinguished services.
The Minister said that the Government is also taking initiatives with a focus on systemic improvements. The transparent procedures and less discretion are bound to reduce opportunities of corruption and make the system more accountable. Indian economy has been growing at a good pace. With the rising economic development, the country has to be vigilant to thwart the nefarious designs of unscrupulous elements who may like to short-circuit the system in vogue. This makes the theme of this conference, “Economic Development: Response of anti corruption agencies”, very topical and highly relevant. 
In the fight against corruption, the anti-corruption agencies viz., CBI and state anti - corruption agencies are the most visible arms of the government to fight corruption at the level of enforcement. The seriousness of the Government to fight corruption is gauged by the performance of these agencies. 
The Central Government is committed to deal with corruption at the grass root level and has been continuously taking measures to put into action this commitment. The Government has ratified United Nations Convention against Corruption followed by the introduction of various legislations in the Parliament. The Government stand committed to put in place comprehensive legislative frameworks to fight the menace of corruption across the board, Shri Narayanasamy said. 
CBI has repeatedly proved its credentials as the premier investigation agency of the country. With the growing workload over CBI, it is imperative that the organisation devises techniques to meet this increasing load. 
The task for anti-corruption agencies is growing each day and the resources are limited. But, these should not come in their way of performing to the expectations of the government and the common man. The outcome of the two days’ deliberations would be a helpful in evolving a strategy to combat corruption especially which comes as a corollary of economic development, the Minister added.
