Periodic vigilance inspections of income tax officers

D.O. F. No. DGIT(Vig.)/PV/2016-17/4559                                                                                     Dated: 04-11-2016

Dear Colleagues,

Sub:  Preventive Vigilance as a management function -regarding

This year Vigilance Awareness Week  is  being  observed  from  31st  October  to  5111  November , 2016. Vigilance ,  however,  is  not  a  stand-alone  activity  and  the  focus  on  vigilance  should   not   be limited to the duration of the  Vigilance  Awareness  Week  only.  It is  a  management  function  to  be exercised  by  all supervisory  authorities  for   overall   risk   management   in   any   organization .   A supervisory officer cannot absolve himself from  vicarious  liability  if the  supervisor  who  has  the  right , ability or duty to control the activities of a subordinate does not take steps  to  prevent  the  acts  of misdemeanor   by  the  subordinate .

2. Rule 3(2)(i) of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964 mandates that every Government servant holding a supervisory post shall take all possible steps to ensure the integrity and devotion to duty of all Government servants for the time being under his control and Therefore, it is necessary that Supervisory Officers conduct necessary checks so that officers and officials maintain absolute integrity and complete devotion to duty.

3. Inspections & reviews are important preventive vigilance functions and periodical inspections of the work of a subordinate can give timely alerts about any wrongdoing by However , I am constrained to point out that the laid down procedure for conducting inspections/ reviews by the CCsIT, the CsIT and the AddI. CsIT is not being followed and only about 25% to 30% of the targeted inspections have been conducted in the past 2/3 years . I request you to give your immediate attention to this area and ensure that the targets and timelines in this regard are strictly adhered to.

4. The office of DGIT (Vigilance) may be approached for any clarifications / guidance in vigilance related matters and for conducting of vigilance related training/ Any new initiatives/ ideas in the field of Preventive Vigilance may be shared with me by email on chairmancbdt@nic.in so that the same can be duly considered by the Board for replication in other Regions also.

With Best Wishes

Yours sincerely

(Sushil Chnadra)
