India Against Corruption

ENG: India Against Corruption (IAC) is a people's movement to demand comprehensive reforms of anti-corruption systems in India. Several eminent citizens have come together to force the Government of India to enact the Jan Lokpal Bill.



Inspired by Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption the leaders of the IAC initiative have prepared a draft Jan Lokpal Bill. The Jan Lokpal Bill provides for a strong, efficient and politically independent institutions, the Lokpal and the Lokayuktas for investigation of corruption charges against public officials and politicians. The bill also provides for time bound grievance redressal and speedy investigation.

In March 2011, the organization sent an open letter to PM Manmohan Singh and Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda for a CBI probe as recommended by Central government committee into "irregularities in the forest department", and into the harassment of IFS officer Sanjiv Chaturvedi.

In April 2011, Anna Hazare gave a call from to the nation to press the government for the enactment of Jan LokPal bill. In hundreds of cities, towns and villages across the length and breadth of the country, people took initiative and formed teams for supporting Annaji's indefinite fast. Hundreds of people joined Annaji in his fast at home / office / event venues on the 5 April 2011. This people's mass movement has vowed to carry on staging fight against corruption.


Anna Hazare's role

Social worker Anna Hazare has declared to go on an indefinite fast starting 16th August 2011 to persuade Government of India to introduce and enact the Jan Lokpal Bill in place of the government proposed Lokpal Bill.

Activist Anna Hazare vowed a “revolution” in India as he began a public fast Friday amid astonishing scenes of celebratory protest that sent an intimidating message to a shell-shocked government.
