Delhi Officers Refuse to Attend CVC’s Anti-Corruption Programs

While the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) of India is largely a toothless outfit which has failed to stop corruption in the country, now the Chief Vigilance Officers (CVOs) of Delhi are showing scant respect to the CVC’s anti-corruption programs.

Most CVOs do not attend the CVC lectures that are aimed to spread awareness about corruption issues. In a circular for a lecture on October 31, the CVC has lamented that despite its advisory to CVOs and other vigilance officers to attend these lectures, a very small number of CVOs based in Delhi are attending the lectures.

The circular signed by CVC director Nitin Kumar states that CVOs’ absence has been viewed adversely by the Commission, as the efforts to improve their knowledge are being wasted. Click here to read the circular.

It advised the officers again to attend the CVC lectures being organized under its “Lecture Series” initiative.
