New Delhi: The Central Vigilance Commission has decided to observe the vigilance awareness week from October 27 to November 2 this year with the theme “Vigilant India, Prosperous India”, an official order said. In addition, the Commission has asked all government organisations to focus on internal (housekeeping) activities which are to be taken up in campaign mode as part of the vigilance awareness week, it said. The probity watchdog has issued guidelines for government departments to carry out such internal activities, including inspection of relevant records, disposal of complaints pending for over six months and finalisation of minor and major penalty among others. The observance of vigilance awareness week would commence with the ‘Integrity Pledge’ by public servants in the ministries/departments/central public sector enterprises (CPSEs)/public sector banks (PSBs) and all other organisations on October 27, 2020, at 11 am, the Commission said. “All organisations are advised to strictly adhere to extant COVID-19 prevention guidelines at all locations and events issued from time to time by the competent authority,” it said in the order issued on Tuesday. The Central Vigilance Commission is an apex anti-corruption body mandated to fight corruption for ensuring integrity in administration. Besides, overseeing integrity in public administration in the central government and the organisations under it, the Commission endeavours in its outreach measures to create awareness amongst civil society and the public at large towards the policy of achieving transparency, accountability and corruption-free governance, the order said.
