NEW DELHI, INDIA: The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) P.J. Thomas as to why his appointment should not be quashed.

The court will hear the matter Jan 27, 2011.

The opposition has been demanding Thomas’ resignation since he has been chargsheeted in a palm oil import scam when he was Kerala’s civil supplies secretary.

Thomas, who was the telecom secretary prior to becoming the CVC, has recused himself from the ongoing probe into the allocation of 2G spectrum that the Comptroller and Auditor General of India says caused a presumptive loss of Rs.1.76 crore to the exchequer. The scam also cost then telecom minister A. Raja his job.
