Pradeep Kumar to be sworn in as CVC today
62-year-old Kumar will be sworn-in as the new CVC by President Pratibha Patil at a ceremony in Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Kumar, a 1972 batch Haryana cadre IAS officer, was chosen for the CVC`s post unanimously by a panel comprising Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Home Minister P Chidambaram and Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj a fortnight ago.
He will have tenure of a little over three years.
The post of CVC fell vacant after the apex court quashed the appointment of Thomas as a charge sheet was pending against him in a corruption case.
