In his inaugural address Director IMT Nagpur, Dr. Subhajit Bhattacharyya mentioned about the crippling impact of corruption on the economic health of the nation. The theme of the interactive session was "Preventive Vigilance as a Tool of Good Governance". Mr. Rajiv Jain questioned the audience with regard to what they thought was the importance of removal of corruption in the society. It was mentioned that inspite of corruption leading to inefficiencies in our cost structure, management as well as economy, corruption is increasing day by day not only in the government sector but also in the private sector. He also took into account the views of the audience as to how they thought we could free our society with the universal evils of corruption. He gave examples of situations where people have encountered dilemmas while taking a decision where they could not understand which path to choose - the path of corruption or personal benefit for the fulfillment of something they desired. Mr. Jain stated with various factual figures the corruption in various sectors. Acts like criminal misconduct and money laundering have engulfed a major portion of our economy. He ended his talk by describing about ways how we should reduce our tolerance level for corruption and not be suppressed by political interference, and act as a responsible citizen of our nation. He enlightened the students by a motivational quote "If one is not greedy and is doing good for society then God is always with him/her."
