Railway Protection Force [RPF] Rule no.110.4 states “No inquiry on anonymous complaint against member of force” however RPF Central Railway Mumbai division entertained anonymous complaint against RPF staff [staff is my friend] and issued him departmental charge sheet. What to do. Anonymous complaint does not has any evidence it contains only allegations.
Please refer to the following circular from the CVC, which covers the issue of anonymous and pseudonymous complaints received by Government departments. It is mentioned in the said circular that in one case, the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) had quashed the charge sheet issued to an employee on the ground that the complaint was a pseudonymous complaint in respect of which the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) did not allow enquiry. This CAT order of quashing the charge sheet was upheld even by the Supreme Court. Please read the above circular, which is reproduced below:
Sir. Thanks for providing CVC circular which is very clear about anonymous complaint. This is going to help my friend.
