Corruption is the one single largest problem plaguing our economy. There have been many efforts to curb corruption but without much effect. And its primarily coz either we are too afraid to blow the whistle, fearing for our lives or we are just not ready for the cumbersome ‘honest’ route. Another major problem is of redressal. But soon that is going to be solved.
Central Vigilance Commision (CVC) has launched Project VigEye (Vigilance Eye). Project VigEye is a platform through which aims to make it easier for common citizens to report in corruption through easier flow of information.
Citizens can send in their complaints either through
- Mobile: Users just need to download an application from the CVC portal. Users can also upload sound clips, videos, pictures or any other evidence that they feel will help their case.
Link: Mobile registration link
- Online: Users can file a complaint online through a simple web form and also attach any evidence that they want to. Link: Online complaint form
All of this happens online, so is much faster and convenient.
After you register your complain, the concerned Central Vigilance Officer (CVO) will contact you over e-mail or phone and pursue the case.
Another good feature of the initiative is that the complainant is constantly keep updated with the status of his/her complaint thus, making it much easier to report incidents of corruption.
Here is a step by step guide to filing a complaint using the two methods:
