Chennai: Central Vigilance Commission`s Project `VIGEYE,` which enables citizens to file complaints using their mobile phones, has been suspended for a week now since the bills for the service have not been paid to service providers, a senior official said on Friday.
"The server is down for the last one week since CVC has not paid the bills. Non-payment of bills and the simultaneous suspension of services by service providers have happened for two to three times now," Vigilance Commissioner R Sri Kumar told reporters here, responding to a query.
Asked what the quantum of the bill amount was, he said "the bill would be Rs three to four lakhs each month. It`s been two/three months since the bills have not been cleared."
To whether CVC has approached the proper channels for clearing of bills, he replied in the affirmative.
Answering a query on when was the problem likely to be resolved, he said "it may take a month for us to find a permanent solution."
Project VIGEYE (Vigilance Eye), a citizen-centric initiative, wherein citizens can join hands with CVC in fighting corruption in the country, was launched on December 9, 2010.
