Jammu, Jan 23: Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah would address 10th State level Departmental Vigilance Officers Conference at police auditorium, Gulshan ground here on January 27 to infuse fresh energy to the institution and give impetus to its working, an official spokesman said.
He said the Vigilance Organization over the years had been geared up to launch a full-fledged campaign against corruption in the State in line with Omar led government’s policy of providing clean and transparent administration to the people and discourage officials of dubious character.
The Departmental Vigilance Officers (DVOs) are being sensitized to play a supplementary role in stamping out menace of corruption, he said, adding the DVOs were actually performing the role of nodal officers to monitor disposal of complaints from the Vigilance Organization, HODs or directly from the public.
“These officers function in close coordination with Vigilance and enquire into the complaints within a specified timeframe whenever such complaints are brought to the notice of the department. In pursuit of its watchdog functions, the Vigilance Organization has intensified its crusade against the bribery and graft practices. The goal is to purge the administration of corrupt elements and remove the slur brought to the state in 2006-07 when it was declared second most corrupt State in the country,” he added.
“The circular issued by GAD vide No 14-GAD of 2002 provides for strengthening internal vigilance in government departments and public undertakings to implement the programme of vigilance and anticorruption. Every secretariat department has nominated an officer to function as the Departmental Vigilance Officer in addition to his own duties. Similarly an officer of appropriate level has been nominated by each of the head of the department and the district level officer to function as departmental vigilance officer in respect of such department/office,” he added.
