The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is facing a grave shortage of manpower, including on the posts of Special Director, Joint Directors and DIGs. In 2022-23, at least 1,025 cases – 943 registered cases and 82 preliminary enquiries – were pending with the country’s top probe agency.

“Till December 31, 2022, the total sanctioned strength of CBI was 7,295 against which 5,600 officers were in position and 1,695 posts were vacant,” a government report said.

As per the report, the vacancies are in the rank of one Special/Additional Director, two Joint Directors, 11 DIGs, 9 SSPs, one Additional SP, 65 Deputy SPs, 360 inspectors, 204 sub-inspectors, 51 assistant sub-inspectors, 123 head constables, 281 constables, and 367 technical officers.

CBI strength is made up of directly recruited personnel and state police personnel on deputation while all higher posts are occupied entirely by officers on deputation. “In 2022, a total of 308 officers were inducted on deputation in CBI in different ranks… Also, the deputation tenure of 133 officials was extended in the different ranks from Joint Director to constable,” the report said.

The report also said, “Out of 943 registered cases, 447 were pending under investigation for over a year. Similarly, of the 82 pending enquiries, 60 were pending enquiries for over three months. Also, 23 Lokpal references were also pending.”

“In 2022, the courts delivered judgments in 557 court cases of CBI. Of these, 364 cases resulted in conviction, 111 in acquittal, 13 in discharge and 69 cases were disposed of for other reasons. The conviction rate was 74.59%. Around 10,732 court cases were pending under trial in various courts,” the report said.

The CBI has made several plans for their personnel. “To provide better office-cum-residential environment, various projects relating to construction of office/residential buildings/quarters in various CBI branches are underway as part of the scheme ‘Comprehensive Modernisation and purchase of land and construction of office/residence buildings for CBI’ under which funds of Rs 39.06 crore were allocated in the revised estimates for 2022-23,” the report said.
