VIGILANCE AWARENESS WEEK
Vigilance Awareness Week is one of the Participative Vigilance initiatives of the Central Vigilance Commission in the fight against corruption. It is an awareness building and outreach measure which aims to bring together all the stakeholders. It is observed to create greater sensitivity about the need for ethics and transparency in governance and public administration. The Commission endeavors to promote integrity and eradicate corruption with the active support and participation of all citizens. For the past three years, there has been a campaign in the run up to the week with preventive vigilance initiatives as focus areas. Every year Vigilance Awareness Week is observed in the week in which the birthday of Bharat Ratna Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel falls in.
In 2023, Vigilance Awareness Week is being observed from 30 October to 5 November with the theme of “Say no to corruption; commit to the Nation, भ्रष्टाचार का विरोध करें; राष्ट्र के प्रति समर्पित रहें”. As a prelude to Vigilance Awareness Week 2023, the Commission has desired that all organizations may undertake a three-month campaign (16th August 2023 – 15th November 2023) with the six Preventive Vigilance measures as focus areas.
