Sinha also said the credibility of CBI is exemplified from the fact that Constitutional Courts and State Governments have been referring large number of matters to CBI. CBI is growing in strength and competence and adapting to new challenges in investigation. He emphasized that CBI has gained trust of constitutional courts and general public at large over the years.
In addition to these functions, he added, CBI enjoys the status of National Central Bureau of India to communicate to other countries through 194-member countries of channels of Interpol. In this way, CBI assists different law enforcement agencies of India as well as different member countries to trace international fugitives, absconders etc.
Praveen Sinha added that CBI has recently brought out the updated Crime Manual-2020 after 15 years. The previous Crime Manual was published in 2005, thereafter, significant developments took place that necessitated the bringing out of a new Edition of the Manual.

CBI strives for excellence in the investigation and prosecution of offences by benchmarking its standards with the best law enforcement institutions in the world. CBI has been successfully suggested many important steps for change of procedures while doing Preventive Vigilance exercises and making a suggestion to the appropriate departments. CBI also needs to increase its presence in the area of Preventive Vigilance.
