Project VigEye: How to Fight Corruption in India Successfully

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:

Filing Complaints through the mobile phone



Filing Complaints through the web


You have to register first before you can file a complaint. To register

Send a blank SMS or “VIGEYE” to 09223174440 to get an SMS containing the registration link in your mobile.

    Most of the communities in India (such as Bengali), are succumbed in ‘Culture of Poverty'(a theory introduced by an American anthropologist Oscar Lewis), irrespective of class or economic strata, lives in pavement or apartment. Nobody is at all ashamed of the deep-rooted corruption, decaying general quality of life, worst Politico-administrative system, weak mother language, continuous absorption of common space (mental as well as physical, both). We are becoming fathers & mothers only by self-procreation, mindlessly & blindfold. Simply depriving their(the children) fundamental rights of a decent, caring society, fearless & dignified living. Do not ever look for any other positive alternative behaviour (values) to perform human way of parenthood, i.e. deliberately co-parenting of those children those are born out of ignorance, real poverty. All of us are being driven only by the very animal instinct. If the Bengali people ever be able to bring that genuine freedom (from vicious cycle of ‘poverty’) in their own life/attitude, involve themselves in ‘Production of Space’(Henri Lefebvre), at least initiate a movement by heart, decent & dedicated Politics will definitely come up.

    Hi Siddharth,

    Thanks for the comment. Appreciate it.

    I can’t really comment on the Bengali culture but what you are saying does seem like real.
