“The reason for the decline in the complaints received in 2015 as compared to the previous year is that in the year 2014, there were multiple complaints received in the Commission sent by some of the complainants containing the same allegations or issues,” said the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions.

The CVC had received 37,039 and 31,432 complaints during 2012 and 2013 respectively.

He said the central government is committed to implement its policy of “zero tolerance” against corruption and has taken several measures to combat graft and improve the functioning of the government and make it more effective and corruption-free.

    cvc itself is corruption, I made allegation against the SSPO's Kalaburagi and there are so many proof for illegal appointment of BPM in March 2015 that is on Sunday. CVC had done the ignorer in formal manner. Lower rank Officer i.e., ASP of Division has done enquiry and sent a report that the allegation was false. I provide 1000 docuemnts to prove. But Group A Officer rank officer are protect themself . CVC should be a seperated from the department officers. after conclusion. they issued a charge sheet against me. Rule-14 for allegation made in grievences. Every CVC is known the whistle blowing protection act. Even though swimming against the wave is foolish. I am the fan of Sri Narendra Modi, as he mention in whatever you want to registered the allegation. you have registere in grievances. Even after allegation so many times. No action taken against the Officer rank. Hence we should not waste our time to made allegation. hence the number of complaints brought down.

    Because CVC doesn't work in the expected manner , people have stopped sending complaints.Number of complaints against corruption will further come down in the coming year. It doesn't mean corruption has come down.CVC is working in a bureaucratic manner to send files from one offices to other like post office without monitoring sincerely and without any punitive action .Rather in most of the cases they have become poppet in the hands of Central PSU officials

    Zero tolerance against corruption is confined to speeches only.Ground reality is something different. when you approach PMO for protection to WHISTLE BLOWERS.Response of PMO is disastrous and painful.They are immune to corrupt and lethargic practices of shortlisting papers and marking to respective departments.When Lokpal Bill and Whistle blower protection bill are not in force.What can be expected from such a Nation ruled by corrupt lobby.lt;br/gt;Bright example is Nalco, a Navratna PSU that have been hounding a whistle blower since last 10 years despite CVC's advice ,the then Secretary(Mines)'s instruction, High Court Verdict in his favor. Addl. Solicitor Generals are bribed to influence the gamut of Departments like law ministry, Ministry of Mines and finally CVC to close the issue .It becomes difficult to penetrate the corrupt lobby of Bureaucrats of which I am a victim.Nalco dares to violate supreme court verdict, DOPT guideline DPE guide line but still gets support from their officials to violate what does it mean ?Is it a Zero tolerance on Corruption or full tolerance on corruption?
