Read your informative & interesting article captioned as 'cvc as watch dog's. I may add a few things here. Almost all central govt depth are free from political interference, but it is there in some degree. Mostly the corruption begins from hoods who control the cader. They pick up willing horses give them plum postings. More willing officers join & entire depth becomes corrupt. CVC certainly is not doing its job honestly. Merely collecting complaints is not enough. Complaints shoud be taken to finality.
