SFIO to rope in financial analysis, law consultants
To ramp up its manpower, the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) plans to hire 15 consultants from various fields, including law and financial analysis. SFIO, which comes under the Corporate Affairs Ministry, is probing many cases, such as alleged fund diversion at defunct Kingfisher Airlines, even as it grapples with staff shortage. Out of 15 consultants, 11 would be hired for law (advocates) and financial analysis at Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad. Besides, three consultants would be hired for banking area and one for law at its office here, SFIO said in a public notice. Initially hiring will be done for six months on contractual basis.
