UPMRCL is a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) which is jointly owned by Government of India and Government of Uttar Pradesh with 50:50 equity participation. The jurisdiction of CVC over the Joint Ventures (JVs)/ Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) of Central Government is clarified vide Department of Personnel & Training‘s letters no- 399/9/2010-AVD-III (Part-II) dt. 15.02.2019. UPMRCL generally adopts the guidelines of Central Vigilance Commission.
Vigilance Administration in UPMRCL is headed by a Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO). The Vigilance functions can broadly be divided into three parts
- Preventive vigilance
- Punitive vigilance
- Surveillance and detection.
While surveillance and punitive action are for commission of misconduct and other malpractices, the preventive measures taken by the CVO are considered more important as these are meant to reduce the number of vigilance cases considerably.
The CVC provides necessary guidelines for effectively carrying out vigilance administration in Govt. offices through various circulars/directives/vigilance manual. These circulars/directives/vigilance manual can be downloaded from their website http://www.cvc.gov.in.
