The Central Vigilance Commission as the apex anti-corruption body of the country endeavours to promote integrity, transparency and accountability in public life. Observance of Vigilance Awareness Week every year is a part of multi-pronged approach of the Commission wherein one of the strategies is to encourage all stakeholders to collectively participate in the preventive vigilance measures and fight against corruption, raise public awareness regarding the existence and gravity of and the threat posed by corruption.
The Central Vigilance Commission has decided that this year the Vigilance Awareness Week would be observed from 27th October to 2nd November, 2020 with the theme सतर्क भारत, समृद्ध भारत (Vigilant India, Prosperous India). The Commission expects all Central Government and its organizations to conduct various activities with zeal and enthusiasm to achieve the objective to eliminate corruption in public life. Although the activities need to be conducted during the Vigilance Awareness Week, however, in case of exigencies/holidays etc. the same can be conducted before or after the Vigilance Awareness Week. In terms of the advice of the Commission, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has decided to observe सतर्कता जागरूकता पखवाड़ा 2020 (Fortnight of Vigilance Awareness 2020) commencing from 27th October to 10th November, 2020.
