Lokayukta New Bill: What Powers Should Anti-Corruption Units Have?
The union government is reportedly considering a law to create anti-corruption units both at the centre and the states (Lokpals / Lokayuktas). Some states have already passed laws to create Lokpals / Lokayuktas, but with varying powers. Given that a central law may be passed, it is important to discuss aspects regarding Lokpals / Lokayuktas such as:
(1) Who all can the Lokayukta investigate?
(2) Whether or not the Lokpal should have only an advisory role or not
(3) What should be the composition of the Lokpal
