CBI Conducts Surprise Checks in a Special Anti-Corruption Drive

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in India recently conducted a special drive on anti-corruption work. Under this drive, more than 150 Joint Surprise Checks (JSCs) at various places of suspected corruption across the country were undertaken in association with the Vigilance Officers of concerned Government departments, Ministries and organizations. According to CBI, the action is in consonance with its mandate of anti-corruption work.

The Joint Surprise Checks were primarily conducted at such points and places of corruption where common citizens or small businesspersons feel maximum pinch of corruption in government machinery.

This special drive aimed to sensitize all stakeholders about possible avenues of corruption a common citizen faces, while seeking services from such departments. It also strives to identify and highlight points and places vulnerable to corruption.
