Nearly a year has passed since when the new Vigilance Manual on the pattern of Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) submitted by Anti Corruption Bureau to government for approval of concerned authority but no step has been taken in this regard.

Since there has been many changes after the abrogation of article 370, the Vigilance manual which is being followed in J&K ACB was notified many years back till date the same is serving as a reference book for vigilance administration.

Thus it was realized that a new Vigilance Manual on the pattern of CVC shall be prepared and for the same a team was framed by the director of ACB, reportedly and the new Vigilance Manual has been submitted to the General Administration Department, which has administrative control over the ACB.

As per reports, it was informed that new Manual will be released by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha in the month of November last year.

But till now as per Daily Excelsior, approval of the competent authority has not been done and neither the Anti-Corruption Bureau has been conveyed any shortcoming, if any, in Manual nor the reason behind the delay in according approval.

Highlighting the grounds for framing of new Vigilance Manual, they said that several circulars and guidelines on different aspects of vigilance administration have been issued either by the Government or by the Central Vigilance Commission and there is an imperative need for compiling them into a single document for the guidance of everyone assigned the task of vigilance administration.
