The Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act of 2013 allow setting up of anti corruption ombudsman, called Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayukta at the State-level. - The Lokpal will consist of a chairperson and a maximum of eight members. - Appointment is via Search Committee and Selection Committee. - 50% of the seats on the Lokpal are reserved for SC, ST, OBC, as well as minorities and women. - The Lokpal will cover all categories of public servants, including the Prime Minister. - But, the armed forces do not come under the ambit of the Lokpal. Drawbacks associated with the Lokpal Act: - The Lokpal does not have the authority to suo moto proceed for investigation against the public servants. - Non-transparent procedure for dealing with complaints against the Prime Minister. - No protection to whistle blowers. - Judiciary is out of the ambit of the Act.
