disciplinary inquiries: No dead wood, Modi government sets 6-month deadline for inquiries against officials - The Economic Times

All disciplinary inquiries against central government officials must be completed within six months, the Narendra Modi government has decided, to hasten the removal of dead wood from government ranks. Officials would be given only 15 days to furnish their defence.
The Supreme Court had, in a judgment in December 2015, impressed upon the government to complete disciplinary inquiries within six months or at most a year after one extension, while it was hearing a case which involved a departmental probe which took nine years. The Centre has now complied.
