Central Vigilance Commission Website
Institution: Central Vigilance Commission (CVC, India )
Theme: Knowledge Management in Government, Citizen Engagement
Implementation Date: Jan 01, 2000
Summary: In an effort to propagate the idea of zero tolerance for corruption, the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) in India has begun to share with citizens a large amount of information related to corruption. The CVC website has published the names of officers from the elite administrative and revenue services against whom investigations have been ordered or penalties imposed for corruption. Any citizen can lodge a complaint against corruption, without fear of disclosure or reprisal. The Commission would scrutinize the information so received, and if the information is considered sufficient for carrying out detailed investigations, the CBI or the Income Tax authorities would be advised accordingly.
Impact: The Central Vigilance Commission website is a bold anticorruption experiment. It provides information to the public about the role, responsibility, and strategies to combat corruption. This is an effort to keep the agenda of fighting corruption alive in the public mind. The CVC site increases the risk element for the corrupt whose ill-gotten wealth is stashed away in the form of black money, foreign accounts, jewelry and other valuables, benami property, etc.
