    CVC castigates dept officials for not implementing own orders

    , Dec 8 (PTI) Castigating Finance Department for not implementing their own orders as corruption complaints went up to 104, the Jammu and Chief Vigilance Commissioner has asked the department's supervisory officers to take action against those violating orders and guidelines.

    The Commission observed that overlooking intentionally such violations tantamount to encouraging corruption and benefit “blue-eyed persons” thereby inflicting financial loss to state-exchequer, the SVC spokesperson said.

    This was stated by the CVC while chairing a meeting of the Commission, held here with the officers of Finance Department (FD) and its subordinate offices.

    The meeting was convened to take stock of the progress of the enquiry into corruption related complaints pending with the department besides the Regular Departmental Actions (RDAs) recommended by the commission and Vigilance Organization.

    Referring to one of the grave violations being resorted by the Deputy Commissioner , the CVC said the officer, despite knowing the violation, has asked the officers to split the developmental works costing below Rs five crore.

    Apart from this, the DC has asked the officers of the district to shelve the e-tendering procedure, which is a violation of government orders and violates the guarantee of economic justice to its citizens provided by the Constitution, he said.

    “Frequent human interface generates chances of corruption,” the CVC said and directed the officers to devise methods wherein human interface is minimised by providing services online.

    Enjoining upon the officers to establish single window clearing system, the CVC observed that applicants have to move from pillar-to-post for obtaining NOCs required for different purposes which leads to applicants preferring to pay bribe to get their job done.

    “In any public service-oriented government, the NOCs should be arranged to be provided by Department concerned online,” he said.

    The Commission directed the Heads of all offices under the Finance Department to post on their website the criteria fixed for obtaining different services to avoid human interface and facilitate submission of all documents online.

    Advocating for creating an atmosphere of cashless transactions, the CVC hoped that it will considerably reduce the chances of corruption. “We should keep pace with this transformation,” he said.

    Stressing for making purchasing, procurement and payments electronically, the CVC said officers should be made accountable in case of any violation.

    He said in case of any justified emergency, the officer should make only limited purchase to meet the exigency and procure remaining quantity through e-tendering.

    The meeting was informed that 18 complaints have been disposed of and process for completing enquiry in RDAs has been started and will be completed shortly.
