The top court, however, restrained Verma from taking any major policy decision till the Central Vigilance Commission inquiry is over.
The apex court also said that any further decision against Verma would be taken by the high-powered committee which selects and appoints CBI Director.
The judgement was pronounced by a bench of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph.
Verma's two-year tenure as CBI Director ends on January 31.
