CVC denies media reports about crash of hard disc of its portal, loss of data
New Delhi, March 19, 2017
The Central Vigilance Commission today said media reports sugesting that the hard disc of its portal had crashed and data about corrupt officials stored online had been lost or deleted were totally misleading and incorrect.
"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," a statement from the CVC said.
"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," it said.
"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," the statement added.
