In first of its kind event held by any government organization, the Indian Railways organized a programme on Ethics in Public Governance and launched “Mission Satyanishtha” at a day-long event held at National Rail Museum, New Delhi. Minister of Railways, Piyush Goyal, administered the oath to the officers and supervisors at the programme.
Speaking on the occasion the MR said, “People define an organization and an organization defines its people, hence, work culture has to be improved and transparency brought about, data should be displayed on public domains so as to get constructive feedback from the users”. “Lack of interest towards work in any system may be termed as unethical amounting to corruption”.
The issue of Ethics, Integrity, and probity in public life have been a matter of concern all over the government sector. In this context, it is also extremely important that all railway servants adhere to impeccable conduct and integrity at all times. “Mission Satyanishtha” launched on July 27 aims at sensitizing all railway employees about the need to adhere to good ethics and to maintain high standards of integrity at work. Talks and Lectures on the subject were organized for staff and Officers of Indian Railways on Friday for this purpose. The objectives of the Mission are:

- 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.
