Lokpal Bill Briefs
  • Hi,

    For your education if you do not know this ---- See how Lokpal Bill can curb
    the politicians, Circulate it to create awareness

    *Existing System*

    *System Proposed by civil society*

    *No politician or senior officer ever goes to jail despite huge
    evidence*because Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) and CBI directly come
    under the
    government. Before starting investigation or initiating prosecution in any
    case, they have to take permission from the same bosses, against whom the
    case has to be investigated.

    Lokpal at centre and Lokayukta at state level will be independent bodies.
    ACB and CBI will be merged into these bodies. They will have power to
    initiate investigations and prosecution against any officer or politician
    without needing anyoneⳠpermission. Investigation should be completed within
    1 year and trial to get over in next 1 year. *Within two years, the corrupt
    should go to jail.*

    *No corrupt officer is dismissed from the job *because Central Vigilance
    Commission, which is supposed to dismiss corrupt officers, is only an
    advisory body. Whenever it advises government to dismiss any senior corrupt
    officer, its advice is never implemented.

    Lokpal and Lokayukta will have *complete powers to order dismissal of a
    corrupt officer.* CVC and all departmental vigilance will be merged into
    Lokpal and state vigilance will be merged into Lokayukta.

    *No action is taken against corrupt judges* because permission is required
    from the Chief Justice of India to even register an FIR against corrupt

    Lokpal & Lokayukta shall have *powers to investigate and prosecute any judge
    * without needing anyoneⳠpermission.

    *Nowhere to go* - People expose corruption but no action is taken on their

    Lokpal & Lokayukta will have to *enquire into and hear every complaint.*

    *There is so much corruption within CBI and vigilance departments*. Their
    functioning is so secret that it encourages corruption within these

    *All investigations in Lokpal & Lokayukta shall be transparent.* After
    completion of investigation, all case records shall be open to public.
    Complaint against any staff of Lokpal & Lokayukta shall be enquired and
    punishment announced within two months.

    *Weak and corrupt people are appointed as heads* of anti-corruption

    *Politicians will have absolutely no say in selections* of Chairperson and
    members of Lokpal & Lokayukta. Selections will take place through a
    transparent and public participatory process.

    *Citizens face harassment* in government offices. Sometimes they are forced
    to pay bribes. One can only complaint to senior officers. No action is taken
    on complaints because senior officers also get their cut.

    Lokpal & Lokayukta will get *public grievances resolved in time bound manner
    *, impose a penalty of Rs 250 per day of delay to be deducted from the
    salary of guilty officer and award that amount as compensation to the
    aggrieved citizen.

    *Nothing in law to recover ill gotten wealth. *A corrupt person can come out
    of jail and enjoy that money.

    *Loss caused *to the government due to corruption *will be recovered *from
    all accused.

    *Small punishment for corruption-* Punishment for corruption is minimum 6
    months and maximum 7 years.

    *Enhanced punishment -* The punishment would be minimum 5 years and maximum
    of life imprisonment.
