Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice has recommended that there is a need to enact a new law and define the status, functions and powers of the CBI and also lay down safeguards to ensure objectivity and impartiality in its functioning. Highlighting withdrawal of general consent for CBI probe by many states, parliamentary committee in its report has said that the existing law – Delhi Special Police Establishment Act governing the federal probe agency has many limitations.

The Parliamentary panel also said that every effort should be made to fill up vacancies in CBI at the earliest. 1,709 posts are vacant in the CBI against its sanctioned strength of 7,295 . The committee also recommended CBI to publish case statistics and annual reports on its website.
