New Delhi: Government officials will take a
pledge to work "unstintingly" for eradication of corruption as
part of the Vigilance Awareness Week next month.

A recent circular has been sent out by the Central
Vigilance Commission to secretaries of various departments and
ministries besides chief vigilance officers and others, asking
them to commence the Vigilance week from November three with
the pledge.

A report on the manner in which the vigilance week had
been observed will also have to be filed by each of them on or
before December one.

The circular also asked each department to adopt more
technological tools to fight corruption. The CVC also asked
them to widely publicise their organisation`s or department`s
technology services like e-payment facility, among others.

The 12-line pledge is taken every year by the government
employees.
