AAP govt introduces Janlokpal Bill in Delhi Assembly

Aam Aadmi Party government today introduced the much touted Delhi Janlokpal Bill, 2015 in the Assembly. The Bill provides for an ombudsman with powers to act against any government functionary, including those of the Centre, in the national capital through its own investigation wing.

Tabling the Bill, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia termed it as the most effective and independent in India’s history. He said the proposed legislation brings under its ambit every act of corruption occurring within the boundaries of the National Capital Territory of Delhi. He clarified that the bill is similar to the one that was introduced during the 2011 Anna Hazare anti-corruption movement, and rejected allegations of it being completely a different version.

A four-member selection committee, chaired by the Delhi High Court Chief Justice, will select the three-member Lokpal. The other members of the selection panel will be the Chief Minister, Speaker of the Assembly and the Leader of Opposition. The Lokpal can be removed only through a impeachment which will require at least two-thirds majority in the Legislative Assembly.

The Lokpal will have to complete the investigation within a period of six months and assets accumulated through corrupt means will be confiscated. The Bill provides for imprisonment upto ten years which may extend to life term. It also has a provision to punish those who file false cases against public functionaries.
