    Cabinet clears anti corruption law

    Posted on: 2015-04-30 Posted by: CLAT Gurukul Category: Archive Blog

    Anti corruption

      Bringing corruption into the heinous crime category, the Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved official amendments to an anti-graft legislation enhancing the penalty under it to a maximum of seven years imprisonment from the present five years. The proposed amendments to the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 provides for more stringent punishment for the offences of bribery--both for the bribe giver and the bribe taker. The official amendments propose to confer the powers of attachment upon the trial Court (Special Judge) instead of the District Court. The proposed amendments would fill in perceived gaps in the domestic anti-corruption law and also help in meeting the country's obligations under the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC).
