Manipur Lokayukta website launched

Pothashang News Service: Imphal, August 24, 2019: Manipur Lokayukta website was launched on Saturday by its chairperson Justice (retired) T. Nandakumar Singh at his office chamber, 3rd Floor, directorate complex, North AOC, Imphal.

The Manipur Lokayukta Act 2014 (Manipur Act No. 11 of 2014) came into force with effect from April 1, 2016.

With the launch of the new website, cases will be shown and types of complaint to be accepted will be uploaded after due process. Lokayukta is a quasi judiciary authority for transparent administration of the state government.  Lokayukta is for the people and it will work for the interest of the public, Nandakumar said.

The website will act as a window through which people will know the functioning of Lokayukta. Lokayukta will look into allegations of corruption and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto against elected public officers, public servants and public functionaries for speedy redressal of grievances of the public. Lokayukta is a friend of the people and friend of the government. People should not refrain from lodging complain to Lokayukta out of fear or any inhibition. Lokayukta is an independent body having the sole authority of investigating and prosecuting allegations of corruption against elected public officers, public servants and public functionaries, he added.

Any individual can file a complaint to Lokayukta and the limitation period of a complaint is within a period of 7 years from the date of crime committed. If the case is a continuing process there will be no limitation period, he added. It will take up complaints filed against ministers and senior IAS officers, he said. But every complaint will not be entertained and only those genuine complaints will be taken into consideration after preliminary enquiry. Complainants will be treated equally and will be given protection if need arises, Nandakumar said.

Secretary, Manipur Lokayukta T. Ranjit Singh, officials and officers of Manipur Lokayukta and NIC, Manipur attended the function.
