Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra in a letter addressed today to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has regretted that for the past several years there has been continuing failure in timely action being taken on the reports furnished by the State Vigilance Commission.

He has also observed that no action has so far been taken on the recommendations made by the SVC regarding amendments to the provisions of the Vigilance Commission Act, 2011.

The Governor has suggested an urgent review meeting at the Chief Minister's level and directions being issued to all Ministers and Administrative Secretaries to ensure that all reports and recommendations of SVC are dealt with without any delay whatsoever, according to letter released to media.

Mr Vohra noted that the SVC was established with the essential objective of promoting honest functioning of the administrative apparatus and it is of vital importance to ensure transparency and accountability in the functioning of the governmental machinery and to promptly bring to book all those who indulge in dishonest practices.

In this context, he said that there can be no acceptable basis for the SVC's functioning and its reports not being given full and timely attention.

Earlier this month, State Chief Vigilance Commissioner Kuldeep Khoda had twice met the Governor who had particularly asked the CVC to inform him about the more significant recommendations made by the State Vigilance Commission and the State Government's action thereon.UNI VBH CJ RSA 2059
