VIJAYAWADA: Ahead of the Vigilance Awareness Week to be held from October 28 to November 2, Railway Board member and Principal Executive Director (Vigilance) and Chief Vigilance Officer Ramesh Kumar Jha held a meeting with Vijayawada Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) P Srinivas and other branch officers in the city here on Thursday. 

Speaking on the occasion, Ramesh Kumar Jha said the theme of this year’s Vigilance Awareness Week will be ‘Integrity - A Way of Life’. 

He called upon the branch officers to dispel the fear of vigilance, believe in conscience as a moral compass and work for the benefit of the railways with integrity. Jha said personal discretion, cumbersome methods, delayed legal procedures and overburdening of staff, were the main reasons behind corruption. There is an urgent need to resolve the issues by leveraging the use of technology, simple procedures and delegation of work in a balanced way, he said. 

On the occasion, the DRM gave a presentation on divisional performance during the current financial year. 

He informed Ramesh Kumar about the ongoing infrastructure projects and quality control measures implemented periodically during supervision of the ongoing works. 

Srinivas also explained innovative concepts and various digital initiatives like e-office, e-DAS, IBMS (Integrated Block Management Systems) implemented by the division.
