Vigilance Awareness Week (VAW) is an annual celebration coinciding with the birthday of the esteemed Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, known for his unwavering integrity. In line with the Government of India's vision for a New India, the Central Vigilance Commission, as the nation's foremost integrity authority, undertakes various initiatives to promote integrity, transparency, and accountability in public administration.

The observance of Vigilance Awareness Week is a crucial component of the Commission's multifaceted approach. One of its primary strategies is to foster collective participation by all stakeholders in the fight against corruption and to raise public awareness about the existence, causes, gravity, and the looming threat of corruption.

This year, the Central Vigilance Commission has chosen to observe Vigilance Awareness Week from 30th October, 2023 to 5th November, 2023 , under the theme " भ्रष्टाचार का विरोध करें; राष्ट्र के प्रति समर्पित रहें, " , "Say no to corruption; commit to the Nation."

Corruption can be defined as the dishonest or unethical behavior of individuals in positions of authority, undertaken to benefit themselves or others. It is a global issue that impacts various segments of society. Corruption erodes political development, democracy, economic progress, the environment, public health, and much more. Thus, it is essential to sensitize and motivate the public to work together in eradicating corruption.

The adoption of e-governance, procedural reforms, reduced discretion, minimized public interactions, technology-driven procurement, and automation can significantly reduce corruption. The Commission, therefore, advises all organizations and departments to identify and implement effective preventive measures to combat corruption and enhance transparency and accountability in their functioning.

The purpose of Vigilance Awareness Week is to raise awareness among the general public regarding the adverse effects of corruption and to encourage collective efforts to combat it.
