In compliance with the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC)’s directions to observe the week from 31st October to 5th November 2016 as Vigilance Awareness Week, HUDCO geared up for the Week’s observance. To begin with, the week was inaugurated with the administration of pledge by Dr. M. Ravi Kanth, IAS(r), the Chairman & Managing Director, HUDCO and R.K. Arora, Director (Finance) in English and Hindi respectively to all the employees. The messages received from the highest dignitaries were also read out.
While addressing the gathering, Dr. Ravi Kanth emphasized the need to practise the messages highlighted in the pledge in the day to day working instead of taking the pledge in a routine way. He was of the view that ‘not doing duty to his/her fullest esteem of the position one holds’ also tantamounts to corruption. He, therefore, stressed upon all employees to work without fear and favor and enhance pride in the organization for its growth and reputation. As for the fear of vigilance, the CMD reminded that ‘Vigilance Angle’ is defined in Vigilance Manual and no one should excessively worry about vigilance while discharging their duties conscientiously, in the best interest of HUDCO.
Summing up his address, Dr. Ravi Kanth asked all officials to participate in various programs being organized during the week.
