The detailed presentation explaining the commission role to curb the corruption in government department has been prepared and it will be glance to the parliamentary panel as said by a official of CVC.

"There may be a conflict of interest in case the Lokpal comes into force in the form being envisaged by civil society. The Commission is given wide powers to probe any complaints of corruption involving central government officials including those working in banks and public sector units, which will also be vested with the Lokpal," as said by a CVC official.

The Central Vigilance Commissioner, Pradeep Kumar, two Deputy Vigilance Commissioner R Srikumar and J M Garg will present their opinion on Wednesday, Sep 7, before the House committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice.

"We will explain that there has to be proper division of work between the CVC and proposed Lokpal. The powers of two bodies should not be made contradictory to hamper probe in corruption cases. We need certain changes in it" as said by the official.

"The panel should consider incorporating either the Central Vigilance Commissioner or one of the two Vigilance Commissioners into the Lokpal for smooth functioning," the official said by refusing to disclose any further details on the CVC's presentation.
