Amendment No. 06

Indian Railways Vigilance Manual-2018

1) Para 512.5 is amended as below

Existing:

512.5 It would be quite unfair to use the benefit of hind-sight to question the technical merits of a managerial decision from the vigilance point of view. At the same time, it would be unfair to ignore motivated or reckless decisions, which have caused damage to the interests of the organization. Therefore, a distinction has to be made between a business loss which has arisen as a consequence of a bona-fide commercial/ operational decision, and an extraordinary loss which has occurred due to any malafide, motivated or reckless performance of duties. While the former has to be accepted as a normal part of business and ignored from the vigilance point of view, the latter has to be viewed adversely and dealt with under the extant disciplinary procedures.

Now amended as:

512.5 It would be quite unfair to use the benefit of hind-sight to question the technical merits of a managerial decision from the vigilance point of view. At the same time, it would be unfair to ignore motivated or reckless decisions, which have caused damage to the interests of the organization. Therefore, a distinction has to be made between a business loss which has arisen as a consequence of a bona-fide commercial/ operational decision, and an extraordinary loss which has occurred due to any malafide, motivated, reckless performance of duties or any act involving elements of mens rea (guilty intent). While the former has to be accepted as a normal part of business and ignored from the vigilance point of view, the latter has to be viewed adversely and dealt with under the extant disciplinary procedures.
