The Central Vigilance Commission celebrated ‘Vigilance Awareness Week’ from 26th October to 31st October, to promote their theme this year “Preventive Vigilance as a tool of Good Governance”.

The Commission laid stress on ‘preventive vigilance’ and said that vigilance should not be seen in isolation but as a tool to achieve good governance and better operational results.

Several organisation and educational centres took proactive part in the campaign which was inaugurated at a function by Indian Railways with a pledge taking ceremony of their officers and staff. A film was also commissioned by the Ministry of Railways that focuses upon preventive vigilance in mass contact areas like ticketing, recruitment and contracts.

Pledges were taken to strengthen the commitment of officials and staff to bringing integrity and transparency in all spheres of their activities and to fight corruption.

Vigilance is not the sole duty of a vigilance department, instead it is the duty of every individual to be vigilant. Transparency, integrity and accountability are basic features of good governance which lead to a profitable, efficient and effective organization.

The Vigilance Awareness promotion 2015 concluded on Saturday at Interactive Financial Exchange (IFX) conference hall at Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Bhopal. AMV Yugandhar, Executive Director BHEL, Bhopal was the Chief Guest and B Maria Kumar, Special Director General of Police was the Guest of honour for the concluding programme of awareness week.

To conclude the awareness week, B Maria Kumar and AMV Yugandhar gave away prizes to the winners of the competitions held during the week.
