* 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.
