The University Grants Commission (UGC) has advised all the universities and the colleges to add topics like vigilance and anti-corruption to curb graft in their curriculum. In a letter to the Vice – Chancellor’s of Central Universities, the UGC secretary said that it has been observed that there is a general lack of awareness among school and college students about what is corruption, its adverse impact on society, how and whom to make a complaint regarding such practices.
The Central Vigilance Commission(CVC) has also advised that topics such as Ethics, Vigilance, Anti Corruption, Details of the organisations such as Central Vigilance Commission, Central Bureau of Investigation and how and whom to make complaints regarding corrupt practices, be included in the curriculum for all students.
In view of the CVC’s advice, the UGC has written to all the universities and colleges to add the topics like vigilance and anti-corruption in their curriculum.
Students are interested in knowing more about ethics, how to fight corruption and related issues. Expanding their knowledge base on these issues will encourage them to be dedicated to the task of tackling corruption. Also, it will help in character building.
