Project VIGEYE

The Central Vigilance Commission, with a view to improving vigilance administration and giving a tool to the general public to air their grievances and taking their help in fighting the menace of corruption, has started Project VIGEYE.

Central Vigilance Commission in India

The Central Vigilance Commission was set up by the Government in February,1964 on the recommendations of the Committee on Prevention of Corruption, headed by Shri K. Santhanam, to advise and guide Central Government agencies in the field of vigilance. Arising out of the case of Vineet Narain vs. Union of India , the Supreme court had directed the Central Government to confer statutory status to Central Vigilance Commission , which was hitherto an advisory body, and also made it responsible for effective supervision of the functioning of CBI. The CVC is not controlled by any Ministry/Department. It is an independent body which is only responsible for the Parliament.

The CVC is not an investigating agency. The CVC either get the investigation done through the CBI or through the Departmental Chief Vigilance Officers. Secondly, the CVC orders investigation in to cases of officials of Central Government Departments/Companies/Organisations only.

In every State of India, there is either a State Vigilance Commission or Lok Ayukta which is looking after the vigilance matters of the State Governments.

Project VIGEYE (Vigilance Eye)

Looking into the magnitude of corruption, a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach is required to prevent and combat it effectively. Preventing corruption also requires an effort from all members of society at large. Information about corruption, malpractices or misconduct on the part of public servants may come to the notice of authorities through complaints which are made with the objective of getting instantaneous redressal of complaints and, expose the wrongdoers. The Central Vigilance Commission, with a view to improving vigilance administration and giving a tool to the general public to air their grievances and taking their help in fighting the menace of corruption, has started Project VIGEYE

Project VIGEYE (Vigilance Eye) is a citizen-centric initiative, wherein citizens join hands with the Central Vigilance Commission in fighting corruption in India. Project Vigeye is the platform through which vigilance information flows freely through common public, the government agencies and the vigilance commission, making it possible to achieve a step jump in improving the corruption index of the nation.
