The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to the government, seeking a reply on a PIL that has challenged the selection process of the Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC).
A bench led by Chief Justice R M Lodha sought a response in four weeks on the petition, which has said there must be unanimity of views by all the members of the Selection Committee in choosing the CVC.
The Selection Committee comprises the Prime Minister, Home Minister and Leader of Opposition. Under the existing system, CVC can be selected by majority.
