* 5 AIS Officers are common in more than one case.
Out of the aforesaid cases against AIS officers, charge-sheets have been filed against 13** officers in 16 cases.
(** 3 AIS Officers are common in more than one case.)

Following are various reasons for delay in concluding the investigation expeditiously:-

1. Complicated nature of cases taken up by CBI for investigation which requires scrutiny of voluminous documents and examination of large number of witnesses;
2. In some cases, investigation has to be done in foreign countries, for which Letters Rogatory has to be executed, which is a time consuming process;
3. Many cases require sanction for prosecution from the competent authority; and also expert opinion;
4. Investigations stayed by Courts;
5. Large vacancies in CBI amongst the rank of investigating Officers and Law Officers affecting the speed of investigation.

Following steps are being taken by the CBI to expedite the disposal of cases from investigation:-

1. Regularly requesting the Ministries/ Departments concerned to expedite the process of issue of sanction for prosecution;
2. Periodical review of cases which are under investigation for more than one year with a view to finalize these cases early;
3. Regularly requesting the concerned GEQD, FSL and CFSL to expedite expert opinion.
4. Regularly pursuing through Ministry of External Affairs for early execution of pending Rogatory Letter;
5. Regular efforts are being made for early vacation of stays by courts.

This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Shri V. Narayanasamy, in written reply to a question, in the Lok Sabha today.

Trivedi to present maiden Rail Budget tomorrow

"Rail Budget is going to be like whatever it should be," Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi said in New Delhi on Tuesday while giving finishing touches to the documents of budget 2012-13.

Trivedi will present his maiden Rail Budget in the Lok Sabha after the question hour on Wednesday.

Asked about the possibility of fare hike, which has not been touched since 2003, he declined to comment saying, "Tomorrow is the budget, no preview."

There are speculations about the possibility of safety cess being imposed on train fares to mop up Rs 5,000 crore as recommended by Kakodkar Committee.

Parliamentary committees, Planning Commission and railway unions have suggested fare hike in all classes to raise funds for the national transporter.

Given the financial condition of railways, Trivedi has to make a tight ropewalk catering to the need of massive upgradation of rail infrastructure and also improving passenger amenities.

Despite constraints, Trivedi could announce some new trains including a few for North-east region.

One day pay cut for absence on strike day
The state government has decided to cut a day’s salary of employees who skipped work on the day of the Citu-sponsored general strike on February 28, but spared them the break-in-service clause it had threatened to invoke.

Today’s order, issued by the finance department, came as a relief to many employees who were absent that day. As a last-ditch attempt to foil the strike, Mamata Banerjee had threatened on strike-eve to crack the break-in-service whip on those employees who would ignore the chief secretary’s circular and be absent on February 28.
