Commemorative Postage Stamp released on CBI..

Hon'ble Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh released a commemorative postage stamp to mark the Golden Jubilee Year of the Central Bureau of Investigation, at the International Conference of "Evolving Common Strategies to Combat Corruption and Crime", in New Delhi on 11/11/2013.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is the foremost investigating police agency in India, an elite force which plays a role in public life and ensuring the health of the national economy. It is under the jurisdication of the Govt. of India. The CBI is involved in major criminal probes, and is the Interpol agency in India. The CBI was established in 1941 as the Special Police Establishment, tasked with domestic security. It was renamed the Central Bureau of Investigation on 1 April 1963. Its motto is "Industry, Impartiality, Integrity".
Agency headquarters is in the Indian Capital, New Delhi, with field offices located in major cities throughout India (including Mumbai). The CBI is overseen by the Department of Personnel and Training of the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions of the Union Government, headed by a Union Minister who reports directly to the Prime Minister. While analogous in struture to the FBI, the CBI's powers and functions are limited to specific crimes by Acts (primarily the Delhi Speical Police Establishment Act, 1946). The current CBI Director is Ranjit Sinha.
