GOI granted more autonomy to CBI
Dec 26, 2013

GOI has placed the CBI's legal wing, which used to report to Law Ministry under the command of the CBI Director, making his word final in investigations to grant more autonomy to CBI.

The agency director will handle the promotions and postings and will write the annual confidential reports.

The Director of Prosecution was the chief functionary of the Prosecution Wing of CBI and was vested with powers of direction and control over prosecuting officers.

The Directorate of Prosecution in CBI is responsible for conducting and supervising cases pending trial, appeal and revision in courts.  It supervises and monitors the conduct of prosecution in courts and gives advice to CBI officers on all legal matters of general or specific import vis-a-vis issues arising during investigation or trial.

These powers have now been passed to the CBI Director.
