NCPRI has been advocating a series of anti-corruption and grievance redress measures to effectively tackle corruption at all levels and redress grievances of people.
The Whistleblowers Protection Bill is a key part of this campaign. Ever since the RTI established itself as a powerful tool against corruption, there have been series of violent attacks on RTI users across the country who question inefficiency and malafide in governance. The NCPRI demands that the Central and State Governments institute effective mechanisms for providing protection to RTI users and anti-corruption crusaders. In this context, the NCPRI believes that a strong and effective Whistleblower Bill (Public Interest Disclosure and Protection for Persons Making the Disclosure Bill, 2010) in Parliament be passed immediately
Below are few important resources on our campaign:
