Vig­i­lance can­not be con­sid­ered an activ­ity to merely pre­vent cor­rup­tion. It is a part of the over­all risk man­age­ment strat­egy aimed at pre­vent­ing leak­ages which adversely affect pro­duc­tiv­ity and prof­itabil­ity. It is being increas­ingly rec­og­nized that vig­i­lance in any pub­lic sec­tor or gov­ern­ment is like any other func­tion of man­age­ment such as finance, mate­r­ial, con­tracts etc., and is thus an inte­gral part of administration.

The West Ben­gal Power Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion Lim­ited (WBPDCL), through a res­o­lu­tion made in the 97th Board Meet­ing held on 14.6.2004, allowed the West Ben­gal State Vig­i­lance Com­mis­sion to exer­cise its pow­ers over the organ­i­sa­tion and its employ­ees in vig­i­lance mat­ters. Such res­o­lu­tion was made in com­pli­ance with the order of the State Gov­ern­ment issued vide no. 1411-P&AR (Vig.) dated 17.12.1976.

WBPDCL has a vig­i­lance set up com­pris­ing offi­cials of all five (5) power plants as well as Cor­po­rate Office. The set up is headed by Chief Vig­i­lance Offi­cer (CVO) whose respon­si­bil­ity is to coor­di­nate works relat­ing to vig­i­lance in the orga­ni­za­tion, to reply to ref­er­ences from the State Vig­i­lance Com­mis­sion and in gen­eral to ensure com­pli­ance with the pro­ce­dure laid down in the res­o­lu­tion no. 221-​GAC dated 4.3.1965 of Home (Gen­eral Admin­is­tra­tion) Depart­ment, Gov­ern­ment of West Ben­gal (sub­sti­tuted by Res­o­lu­tion No. 1/​PAR (Vig) dated 10.12.2012). Chief Vig­i­lance Offi­cer (CVO) works under direct con­trol and super­vi­sion of the Chair­man & Man­ag­ing Direc­tor (CMD).

The Vig­i­lance Wing of WBPDCL is striv­ing for enhance­ment of vig­i­lance admin­is­tra­tion within the organ­i­sa­tion with prime focus towards main­tain­ing greater trans­parency, fair­ness and account­abil­ity in dis­pens­ing with the func­tion­ing of the organization.
