  • Rajya Sabha
Registered author(s):

    The report includes a specific recommendation to categorically have a statutory provision imparting genuine independence to the CBI by declaring, for the first time, that it shall not be subject, on the merits of any investigation, to either the administrative Ministry or the Lokpal. Secondly, it separates, for the first time, investigation from prosecution, thereby strengthening each and making each more professional and objective, apart from initiating for the first time, the creation of a premier prosecution department under the Lokpal. Thirdly, the Selection Committee, for the first time, includes a joint nominee of the three major constitutional post holders. Fourthly, Lokayuktas and the Lokpal are, for the first time, sought to be subsumed under a common enactment. Fifthly, constitutional status is sought to be conferred, again for the first time, not only upon the Lokpal institution but also upon the proposed Grievances Redressal body. Sixthly, the Report recommends abolition of all sanctions, by whatever name called. Finally, the CVC is, for the first time , made responsible for the large chunk of class C employees, with a supra added reporting requirement to the Lokpal. [Report Rajya Sabha]. URL:[].
