I am directed to state that corruption in State Government Departments and Government Undertakings have been reported from time to time in the media or through various complaints, petitions etc. Some cases have been allowed by various Departments to develop into scandal; since no proper enquiry or investigation is done in time. It is therefore, necessary to stop this tendency forthwith.

For this purpose, the State Anti-Corruption Branch under the control of the Chief Secretary as the State Vigilance Commissioner has been functioning in the Political Department. All complaints of corruption, misconduct etc. of public servants which required investigation by the State Anti-Corruption Branch should be referred to the State Vigilance Commissioner by all concerned Departments/ Officers. On the order by the State Vigilance Commissioner, the cases/ complaints etc. will be enquired into by the Anti-Corruption Branch of the State police Department under the over-all supervision by the Inspector General of Police (CID).
