What does this bill is all about? Why there are difference between the Anna’s Lokpal Bill and Government’s Lokpal Bill? What are those differences? Why they are not settling on a mid-way? What is this all? City Blog takes bring you all the information about ‘Lokpal Bill’.


Lokpal bill, which is also known as citizens' ombudsman bill, is a proposed law for the anit-corruption in our Nation. The bill first introduced Shanti Bhushan in 1968 and passed in 4th Lok Sabha in 1969. But, it didn’t get through the Rajya Sabha. Subsequent version were re-introduced in 1971, 1977, 1985, 1996, 1998, 2001, 2005 and 2008; and never passed.

Renewed calls for the bill arose over resentment of the major differences between the draft 2010 Lokpal Bill prepared by the government and that prepared by the members of the associated activists movement- mainly comprising of N. Santosh Hegde, a former justice of the Supreme Court and Lokayukta of Karnataka; Shanti Bhushan, Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhusan, a senior lawyer in the Supreme Court along with the members of the Indian Against Corruption movement.
