NLC Vigilance Awareness Week : Non-performance and failing to meet out expectations – a form of corruption


The Valedictory Function of the Vigilance Awareness Week Programme-2017 was held at L & DC Auditorium, Neyveli on 04.11.2017.  Sri A. Selvaraj, IRS (Retd.), Chief Commissioner of IncomeTax, the Chief Guest of the function, said that corruption was one of the killer diseases plaguing our country today. Working at one’s competency level was also one form of integrity, he said.

Corruption did not mean only financial impropriety.  Non-performance and failing to meet out expectations in an organization is nothing but a form of corruption.    In the same way, mere compliance with the rule book would not constitute integrity. Achieving objectives in a justifiable manner is real integrity one should exhibit to the organization.

Sri M. Sampath, IPOS, Chief Post Master General, Tamilnadu Circle, Guest of Honour, appreciated NLCIL for its appropriate activities to inculcate honesty and integrity among the younger generation.  He said he felt it a privilege to join hands with NLCIL and The Hindu in organizing the painting competition in connection with the Vigilance Awareness Week.
