Urgent: Only 3 weeks left for feedback on draft Whistle-blowers’ Act

Dear fellow activists & mediapersons,

About ten days ago, DoPT quietly released India’s draft whistle-blowers act, officially called “The Public Interest Disclosure And Protection To Persons Making The Disclosures Bill, 2010” into the public domain, and requested feedback before September 30. I think most of us failed to notice this and respond, because one is not seeing any discussion happening on this on any forum.

To form an informed opinion, one needs to study this Act for at least 3-4 hours. To make this easier, here is a detailed section-by-section analysis with colour-coding & highlights:

Also see official release of this Bill with DoPT’s covering letter:

Please email your responses to
Address letters to:
Shri V.K. Velukutty,
Deputy Secretary (V-Ill),
Department of Personnel and Training,
Room No. 10-8/11, North Block,
New Delhi-110001.

Please give us your feedback, based on which we will send forceful representations to DoPT.
