In the Revenue Department there are highest number of enquires/complaints pending disposal as was pointed out by the Secretary State Vigilance Commission in his welcome address. The Dy. Director Prosecution presented out the duties and responsibilities of the CVOs, DVOs, as provided under the State Vigilance Commission Act & Rules which was followed by a detailed practical procedure to be adopted

by the CVOs, DVOs and District VOs while conducting enquires particularly in respect of complaints regarding execution of works, attestation of mutations, disproportionate assets, illegal appointments, fake DOBs, category certificates, qualification certificates, PRCs etc. The Director Vigilance Organization informed the Commission that certain difficulties are faced by his officers while getting the records from various departments which results in avoidable delay in concluding the investigations.
It was made clear during the meeting that the services of CVOs, DVOs and District VOs have been safeguarded under the SVC Act & Rules however, it has been stressed upon them that their role has to be proactive and not just a mere formality. The Commissioner Secretary to Govt. Revenue Department informed that a mechanism will be devised whereby all the Dy.

The Chief Vigilance Commissioner directed the Commissioner Secretary to Govt Revenue Department to issue instructions to all Dy. Commissioners to take up the pending enquires and complete them within next 45 days. He was also instructed to give instructions to ACs to evict those persons whom land was allotted under Roshni Scheme but have failed to deposit the requisite money within stipulated time. Further, it was also stressed upon the CVOs, DVOs and District VOs that they should fix a calendar for every complaint/enquiry for its proper follow-up. It was made clear that provisions for cohesive measures are laid down in the SVC Act & Rules for compliance despite that the Commission understands the difficulties of the officers working in the field and is granting sufficient time to them for submitting their reports and information. However, non-compliance is taken serious note of.  The meeting was chaired by Shri Kuldeep Khoda, Chief Vigilance Commissioner and was attended by Dr R. K.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
