Speaker: Prof. Nandkishore, the chief vigilance officer of IIT Bombay.
Title: Vigilance overview: Importance and awareness.
Abstract:Vigilance is an important component of all organizations. Indian Institutes of Technologies are Autonomous Organizations which directly report to Central Vigilance Commission and Vigilance Section of the Ministry of Human Resource Development of the Country on vigilance related matters. Preventive Vigilance is the main objective the Vigilance Section of any organization. Therefore it is important to be aware of various aspects of vigilance, for us, especially in educational organizations. Each IIT has a Chief Vigilance Officer, who is an extended arm of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), and is a link between CVC and IIT. The lecture will cover an overview of Vigilance including procedures on dealing with vigilance related matters, matters which fall under vigilance, role of CVO and CVC, and need of preventive vigilance.
