Bhubaneswar: There is a lack of awareness about vigilance procedure which is the reason for corruption and unethical behaviour in India, K V Chowdary, Central Vigilance Commissioner said on Wednesday.

Addressing the 15th edition of the Nalco foundation day lecture series on “Preventive Vigilance: Key to Good Corporate Governance”, Chowdary laid stress on awareness of vigilance measures as a fundamental to prevent corrupt practices.

He expressed concern that most people in the country lack awareness about vigilance procedures, which results in corruption and misconduct.

Chowdary said the vigilance system and procedures should be consistent and simplified, and the mechanism should be robust, and continuously tested.

He also focused on a systematic and continuous feedback system.

The CVC said public sector undertakings and corporates, along with government organisations, should give due importance to preventive vigilance as well as predictive vigilance.

Nalco CMD Tapan Kumar Chand said: “As a corporate philosophy, Nalco has focused on value-based management, taking manifold steps to promote transparency, fairness, responsibility and accountability that are cardinal principles of corporate governance.”

A book “Aluminium: the Strategic Metal”, authored by Chand, was also released, which speaks about the strategic use of aluminium.

The first Nalco Kalidas Awards were also handed over to Harekrishna Satapathy, vice chancellor of Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, Tirupati, and Gangadhar Panda, Vice Chancellor of Jagannath Sanskrit Vishvavidyalaya in Puri for their significant contributions in the field of teaching and propagating Sanskrit.(Picture Courtesy:aajkikhabar.com)(IANS)

Bangladesh Nationalist Party Chairperson Khaleda Zia, convicted in a corruption case, was granted bail on Monday.

BNP leader Zia secured a four-month bail in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case in which she was handed five years of imprisonment by a Bangladesh court.

“Now, there is no legal bar to let Khaleda walk out of prison on bail,” Bangladesh Daily Star quoted BNP Advocate Sagir Hossain Leon as saying.

Earlier today, a bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Shahidul Karim passed the bail order in response to a petition moved by Khaleda before a high court back in February.

Her bail was considered on four grounds, including her health condition.

Further, the high court directed the concerned authority to prepare the paper book of the case within the next four months for hearing the appeal she filed against her conviction in the case.

The high court sentenced Zia’s eldest son and Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s (BNP) Vice-Chairman Tarique Rahman and four others for at least 10 years with a fine of 2.10 crore Bangladeshi takas (Tk).

The Anti-Corruption Commission had earlier filed a case in 2008 with Ramna Police Station, accusing six persons including Khaleda and her son Tarique.

Khaleda is a two-time Bangladesh Prime Minister, having ruled from 1991-96 and again from 2001-06.

In a political career spanning almost four decades, Khaleda went to the jail several times but was never convicted. She was detained several times during the anti-Ershad movement between the 1980s and 1990s.

In March 1983, she was made vice-chairperson of BNP after her husband and former Bangladesh President Ziaur was assassinated.

She went on to become the party’s chairperson in 1984, a position which she holds today. May 10, 1984.

Since the last three decades, Bangladeshi politics have been dominated by Zia and current Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
