The court was hearing a plea filed by CBI director Alok Verma challenging the decision of the government to take him off duty.
The CVC probe will be supervised by retired judge AK Patnaik, said SC. The court has asked the centre and CBI to provide the report on the same in a sealed cover.
Senior advocate F S Nariman, who was advancing arguments on behalf of the CBI chief, submitted that the director was appointed with the approval of a selection panel having the prime minister, the leader of opposition and the Chief Justice of India.
Verma has sought a stay on the centre's order asking him to proceed on leave and giving the interim charge of his post to joint director M Nageswara Rao, a 1986 batch Odisha-cadre IPS officer.
The court said that acting CBI director Nageshwar Rao shall not take any major decisions in the period and only undertake the routine tasks.
The matter is set to be heard on November 12.
