Currently, the director of the CBI and ED has been appointed for two years in office in terms of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) Act, 2003. The directive states that “although Parliament is absent and the President is satisfied that conditions exist. making it necessary for him to take immediate action.”
President Ram Nath Kovind has given his approval to the bill and the central government is expected to introduce a law in Parliament to replace it. As a new rule, CBI or ED Directors can now be appointed for a first term of two years, and later if necessary, the term of office may be extended for a further three years.
