Take cognisance of verifiable corruption allegations: Govt

The Centre on Friday directed all central government departments to take cognisance of corruption complaints containing verifiable allegation.

‘If a complaint contains verifiable allegations, the administrative ministry or department may take cognisance of such complaint with the approval of the competent authority to be designated by the ministry or department as per their distribution of work,’ the ministry of personnel said in a missive.

In such cases, the complaint will be first sent to the complainant for owning or disowning, as the case may be. If no response is received from the complainant within 15 days of sending the complaint, a reminder will be sent.

‘After waiting for 15 days after sending the reminder, if still nothing is heard, the said complaint may be filed as pseudonymous by the ministry or department,’ it said.
