Jan Lokpal Bill Of India 2011

The efforts to have the Jan Lokpal Act of India 2011 are in full progress. However, till now they are at the stage of drafting a Bill for that purpose.

Even a final draft Bill has not yet been prepared. In all probability it may not be prepared till the deadline of 30th June 2011.

Meanwhile, Praveen Dalal, managing partner of New Delhi based law firm Perry4Law and leading techno legal expert of India has explained what an ideal Jan Lokpal Bill must have. He has also sent these suggestions to the government of India.

He has also introduced the element of information and communication technology (ICT) for effective applicability of the proposed law.

The present Drafts proposed by both Indian government and civil liberty activists do not cover the points suggested by Praveen Dalal.

Since he has also sent these suggestions to Indian government, they may be considered while drafting the final draft.

Till now Indian government has not shown any serious efforts to make the proposed Jan Lokpal Bill strong and effective.

The suggestions given by Praveen Dalal, if incorporated, can make the final draft strong and effective.
