            Out of these 299, charge sheet has been filed in 107 cases (103 in 2015 and 4 in 2016). 3 cases resulted in conviction in 2015. 

The cases referred by Supreme Court are under active investigation.  However, due to following reasons, time frame for filing Charge-sheets can not be fixed. 

In some cases, investigation requires scrutiny of voluminous documents and examination of large number of witnesses.
In some cases, investigations has to be done in foreign countries for which Letters Rogatory has to be executed, which is a time consuming process
Many cases remain pending even after conclusion of investigation for want of sanction for prosecution from the competent authority or for want of expert opinion.
Large vacancies in CBI amongst the ranks of Investigating Officers and Law Officers affect the speed of investigations.
