Central Vigilance Commissioner K.V. Chowdary said that the purpose of Vigilance Awareness Week from October 26 to 31, is to generate awareness about the bad effects of corruption. CVC is giving lectures at school and college levels to take the message of preventive vigilance to the young minds. At a press meet appealed to the media persons to spread awareness on this issue among the public at large.
He said that the Commission receives many complaints from the public at large every year. The awareness should be generated among the public so that the complaint is addressed to the appropriate authority and the action can be taken faster. He said more emphasis should be given to ‘preventive vigilance’ than the ‘punitive vigilance’. The
systems and processes should be set in place so as to generate alarm in case of anything happening beyond the prescribed processes.
