The Indian Railways launched ‘Mission Satyanishtha’ and a programme on Ethics in Public Governance, in a first-of-its-kind event, at a day-long function held at National Rail Museum, New Delhi on July 27, 2018.
The Union Minister of Finance, Piyush Goyal administered the oath to the officers and supervisors at the programme. Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said that people define an organisation and an organisation defines its people, hence, work culture has to be improved, transparency needs to be brought about and data should be displayed on public domains so as to get constructive feedback from the users.
He further added, “Lack of interest towards work in any system, may be termed as unethical amounting to corruption”.
The first-of-its-kind event was inaugurated by Ashwani Lohani, Chairman, Railway Board. Lohani then introduced the subject to the participants.
The event saw participation from senior officers and staff members of the Railways.
The event was webcasted live to all Zonal, Divisional and Production Units from the National Rail Museum.
The Satyanishtha mission aims to sensitise all railway employees about the need to adhere to good ethics and to maintain high standards of integrity at work.
Key objectives of the Mission include:
• To train every employee to understand the need and value of ethics in personal and public life.
• To deal with ethical dilemmas in life and public governance.
• To help understand the policies of Indian Railways on ethics and integrity and the employee’s role in upholding the same.
• To develop inner governance through tapping inner resources.
The issue of ethics, integrity and probity in public life has been a matter of concern all over the government sector.
Hence, it has become extremely important that all railway servants adhere to impeccable conduct and integrity at all times.
To enable the same, talks and lectures on the subject were organised all over the Indian Railways.
