The purpose of this honesty test is to find which Lokpal bill is good for India that Janlokpal Bill or Congress government Lokpal Bill
After reading this your heart and soul will answer you who is honest and to whom support.
Honesty Test 1
If the job is not done within stipulated time, the concerned
Officer or department head should be fined which should be given to
The complainant as compensation
A Citizen’s Charter can be made, but does not
Agree to fine the concerned officer for not having done his job on
Honesty Test 2
The machinery of Corruption is wired & connected from top
To bottom. Investigating only the top officials will not be enough. The
Common public has to get their work done by the lower ranking officers.
Whatever system the government has to create to fight corruption
Should be done. Must be done.
The Lokpal should investigate corruption charges
Against only Group a level officers (the highest ranking officials),
Because it is not possible for one agency to investigate matters related
To 40 Lakh Central Government Officials.
Honesty Test 3 –
The common man has to deal more with the state
government for their everyday needs, eg. Rashion, Pension, Roads,
Electricity etc. Therefore, only a lokpal at the center will not be
enough. Under the same Lokpal Bill, a Lokayuct should be formed in
every state, which will investigate corruption of state government
The job of controlling corruption in State
Government Offices should be left to the state governments. If the
state government wants; they can make their own Lokayuct. The
government says that as per our constitution, the decision to create a
lokayuct, is under the purview of the state governments.
Honesty Test 4 –
Many times, MP have been accused of taking bribes to vote or ask questions
in the Parliament. Who should investigate these matters?
Investigations into such matters can not be left to the
Member of Parliament's own committees, as there is always a
possibility of favoritism.
This is the reason why, despite serious allegations, no MP has gone to jail. So, the job of independent & fair investigation should be given to the Lokpal. And we should not shy
away from making amendments to the constitution if necessary.
Such investigations can be done only by
Parliamentary Committees as has been happening till now.
As per the constitution, MP’s has this special privilege.
If such matters are investigated by the Lokpal, it will be outside the constitution.
Honesty Test 5 –
If there is an allegation of corruption on a Judge, permission needs to be
taken from the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court before initiating
investigations on that judge.
Despite several matters relating to corruption in the
judiciary in the past 20 years, permission to investigate has been given
in only 2 cases.
This very point makes it clear that judges will never give
permission against their own judge "brothers".
Therefore, the authority to give permission to investigate judges should be given to a 7 member
bench of the Lokpal which will be fair and independent.
Correct decision on permission to investigate in matters about judges, can only be taken by judges. Giving this right to the Lokpal, will be a compromise on the independence of the judiciary.
A separate bill is being brought for this. As per this new bill, a
committee of 3 judges of the same court will grant permission to
investigate the accused judge.
Honesty Test 6 –
If the Prime Minister is accused of corruption, the CBI is the investigative
The CBI works directly under the Prime Minister's control. So
how can the CBI Investigate its own boss? A system can easily be put in
place to curb petty & baseless allegations.
Considering the post of the prime minister, this job
should not be given to the lokpal. Therefore, this work should remain
with the CBI. If there are thousands of complaints against the Prime
Minister, it will become difficult for him to work
Honesty Test 7 –
If an official is fount guilty during investigation, who should have the power
to dismiss him?
Usually, in the corruption case of an official, the
concerned minister is also involved. It has been found that instead of
punishing the corrupt, ministers often give them lucrative postings.
Therefore, they can not take a correct decision on guilty officers. The
power to dismiss a corrupt official should be with the Lokpal. The
minister will still have the power on transfers, postings, promotions
of officials and so the officials will obey his orders.
The power to dismiss an official found guilty of
corruption should be with the concerned minister of that
department. As per the government, if the power to dismiss a
corrupt official is given to the Lokpal, the officials will stop obeying
orders of the ministers.
