GUWAHATI, Jan 23 - Indian Oil�s Chief Vigilance Officer Vinod Kumar on Monday addressed the non-marketing vigilance functionaries of the corporation during a quarterly review meeting organised here.
In his address as the chief guest, Kumar recalled the contribution of the pioneers of the corporation for taking up the challenging task to establish the Guwahati Refinery way back in 1962.
�Considering that the refinery was built in 1962 and considering the resources and technology available at that point of time, I salute the people who made this possible,� he said.
While speaking on the changing scenario of vigilance actions in the corporation over the years, Kumar said that the corporation today sees the shift in focus of vigilance actions from punitive to preventive. �We do not like to punish people, but we would definitely like to prevent a fault,� he said. He also expressed concern at the status of STPs (Statutory Testing Procedures), pending ATRs, and dealership agreements.
Kumar also urged the vigilance officials to be especially alert on firming up of contracts like labour supply tenders. The CVO also exhorted all to utilise facilities available at GeM to purchase products. He said that most of the products at GeM are available at discounted rates and that the facility should be utilised.
Jogen Barpujari, ED (GR), while addressing the vigilance functionaries of IOCL�s non-marketing divisions from across the country, elaborated on the preventive vigilance actions taken by the refinery. Jayanta Kumar Hazarika, GM-Vigilance (Guwahati Refinery), was also present on the occasion.
