Thumbs up The Existing Anti-Corruption Bodies Are Ineffective - Why ?


What is wrong with the mechanism of Anti-Corruption Bodies ?

CVC

* No jurisdiction over politicians,only bureaucrats
* No power to register criminal cases.It deals only with vigilance or disciplinary matters
* No direct power over departmental vigilance wings.It mostly forwards corruption complaints to them and keeps sending reminders
* Supervisory powers over CBI have made little difference as CVC can't call for any file or issue directions to the agency


DEPARTMENTAL VIGILANCE WINGS

* Manned mostly by officials from within same department,on temporary basis
* Since each wing is under direct control of head of department,can hardly probe any senior official of that department.
* Even otherwise,in complaints against senior colleague,vigilance officer might hesitate as he could be posted later under the same person
* No jurisdiction over politicians and no power to register FIRs against anybody.Can only deal with disciplinary proceedings


CBI

* Though it can book cases against bureaucrats and politicians,CBI's independence compromised as it comes directly under Centres control
* Govt control leaves it vulnerable to charges of investigations being politically motivated
* Since it is overburdened,CBI does not accept cases unless amount involved runs into crores
* Cannot book cases against officers above the rank of joint secretary without prior sanction from their department


Similar structural deficiencies lead to impunity for corruption at the state level.
