Valedictory Function of Vigilance Awareness Week 2015

The Valedictory function of Vigilance Awareness Week – 2015  was organised by CSIR – NAL and CSIR – 4PI on Friday, the 30th  October, 2015  at S R Valluri Auditorium, CSIR-NAL, Bengaluru.

Shri K.Chandrashekar, CoFA  welcomed the gathering and informed that the main purpose of observing the week dedicated to Vigilance Awareness is to rededicate ourselves and to reaffirm our commitment to ensure transparancy in  decision making and to obviate exercise of individual discretion.   He stated that corruption in India is perceived to have increased in the Corruption Barometer.    Countries like Denmark,  New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland and Singapore were seen as highly clean countries.   Infact,  India stands at 86th position in the list of corruption.    This needs to be drastically brought down by  combined efforts of each and every individual.    It is ironic that in a country which hails Mahatma Gandhi,  as the Father of the Nation who had stated that nature provides enough for everyone’s need but not for greed.  Perception Index is showing India to be more corrupt than many other countries that too after enforcement of Right to Information Act. 

Shri Chandrashekar welcomed Shri  R.Ramesh, IPS, Dy.Commissioner of Police(Crime), Bengaluru and gave a brief introduction of his persona.

The Chief Guest Shri R.Ramesh  in his  lecture on “Criminal Breach of Trust ”   gave a brief on various kinds of  punishments, the tenure of imprisonments,  different kinds of offences such as cognizable and non-cognizable,  the gravity of the offences,   the process of investigation that takes place. He  focussed on  how criminal breach of trust  occurs in offices  with examples and the duties and responsibilities of officers to be entrusted in writing to their subordinates.   Further,  he had an interactive session with the gathering which included school students of Kendriya Vidyalaya, NAL, Bengaluru. 

Shri Shyam Chetty, Director  presided over the function.  In his address he said   that  this year the theme of observing Vigilance Awareness Week is  “Preventive Vigilance as a tool of good governance”.  He said that this week is observed in commemoration of the birthday of our great leader Sardar Vallabhai Patel whose name is synonymous with integrity.   Sardar Vallabhai Patel had set himself as a Role Model with his impeccable quality to stand for the right cause and fight against all such impediments whatsoever may arise in course of realizing the right cause.  

Vigilance is an observation and alertness and in my opinion Vigilance is far beyond a mere mechanism to fight against corruption. Let us pledge that we shall never forget that Work is worship and Honesty is the best policy. Therefore, we shall work unstintingly and honestly towards the reputation of our organization.   We have new challenges ahead  in our  work and this development is  inspired by social justice.   We have to ensure that our achievements do not suffer because of mismanagement  or neglect.   This calls for a great deal of discipline and efficiency from one and all,   otherwise the fabric of  our  work is likely to be damaged.   To achieve this,  one and all will have to strive hard.

The Chief  Guest distributed prizes to the winners of various competitions conducted in connection with the Vigilance Awareness Week  for the students of Kendriya Vidyalaya, NAL and the employees of CSIR - NAL and CSIR - 4PI.

Shri M S Vidyanathan, Sr Controller of Administration proposed vote of thanks.
