Sub:   Vigilance Clearance of serving officers for the purpose of appointment
as Arbitrators

From time to time, proposals have been received from various zonal railways
seeking vigilance clearance in respect of serving officers for the purpose of appointment as
arbitrators.

2. It has been observed  that some of the zonal railways while seeking vigilance
clearance from Railway Board send almost the entire cadre strength of officers (from a
particular grade upwards) and sometimes the list also include names of officers, who are on
unauthorized absence, long leave etc.

3. As per guidelines laid down for appointment of Serving Railway Officers as
Arbitrators, an officer:
(a) Should not have undergone punishment arising out of vigilance/CBI cases
during last five years;
(b) Should not be borne on Secret / Agreed list;
(c) No DAR proceedings should be in progress;
(d) Should not be having any Registered Cases (RC) by CBI.

4. Current status of Agreed/Secret List of officers working on the railways as also
names of officers who are facing Major/Minor Penalty action is definitely available with zonal
railway vigilance. Information regarding a case registered by CBI against an officer may also
be available with zonal railway vigilance.

5. It has now been decided by competent authority that vigilance clearance should be
obtained from Railway Board vigilance only in respect of those officers, who are actually
being considered for appointment as arbitrators.  Furthermore, an initial scrutiny should be
done at zonal vigilance level to exclude the names of such officers who are
(a) on unauthorized absence/long leave
(b) borne on current Agreed/Secret list
(c) figuring in current Major Penalty/Minor Penalty cases
(d) figuring in a case under investigation by CBI (as known to zonal railway)

Any proposal seeking vigilance clearance of serving offices for the purpose of
appointment as Arbitrators which has already been sent by any of the zonal railways and for
which no reply has been received from Railway Board vigilance should be reviewed in light
of above revised guidelines and proposals should be sent afresh.
