The significance of 31st October is that it is the birthday of the Bismarck of India, Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel. He represents the best values in the Indian tradition so far as governance is concerned. He integrated the country and also was a shinning example of probity in public life. Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel exercised a major influence in establishing the administrative structure in India.
The theme of this year’s Vigilance Awareness Week is “Transparency in Public Procurement”.
