Central Vigilance Commission has noticed that certain sections of the media
have reported that “the hard disc of the CVC portal has crashed and all data
stored online till that date has been lost.”
Central Vigilance Commission considering all such reports appearing in the
media issues the following clarifications for information of the public and all
The media reports stating that the data
stored online about corrupt officials was lost or deleted is totally misleading
The Commission would clarify that it has
not lost any data of corrupt officers or any such information of matters
relating to its Core Anti-Corruption activities and its vital functions.
With regard to its portal which handles
complaints, the Commission was in the process of switching over from an older
portal to one utilising cloud based server for some time since 2016. The new
such online portal developed has been made operational since November, 2016 and
is fully functional for citizens/public to lodge complaint of corruption in
respect of public servants to the commission. However, migration of earlier
data from the physical server to a cloud based storage application is taking
some more time and hence, the status of action taken on earlier complaints is
not available online at present.
The commission would like to further
clarify that the complete data/ and related information of all actionable
complaints is available in files and records with the commission.
