Vital stats: Corruption cases against govt officials

By Rohit Kumar/PRS Legislative Research

The agitation led by Anna Hazare has focused on the formation of a Lok Pal to address the issue of corruption. We look at some data on the existing systems of identifying and prosecuting cases of corruption against public officials.

Note: The composition of CBI cases is not readily available. Whereas a majority of the cases relate to corruption, CBI investigates other cases too. This note is based on data obtained from the websites of the CVC and the CBI.
