News.cc | 21 January 2017 11:16:18 Tamil Nadu has been reeling with protests over the corruption allegations against Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and her party over the last few weeks.
With the anti-graft bill being debated in Parliament, it’s likely to be the subject of more controversy than in the past.
There are several major controversies already in the run-up to the bill’s enactment, and the government is also facing a number of questions over the bill and the way it will be implemented.
The main thing to know about the anti.corruption bill is that the main thrust of the law is the same as the previous anti-corruption bill, but there are some major changes.
Here are some of the key changes.
The first major change is the new definition of corruption.
This is an entirely new law.
In the previous bill, the definition of a corrupt transaction was “any action which, in a political sense, favours or gives a preference to one person or group over another in an election or any act which is likely to cause or enable the person or party to gain or maintain a political advantage over another person or the group.”
This new definition includes not just corrupt transactions but also the actions of people in the public interest and in the interests of the people.
The new definition does not include activities that are motivated by partisan political or ideological views.
There will also be provisions to combat corruption.
One of the main areas of concern is the provision to prosecute those who have committed offences against the government and those in public office.
The government has been defending the new law in court, arguing that this provision was needed to protect the public from those who were corrupt.
The Supreme Court has agreed with this argument and the new bill is being framed in a way that makes the provision against corruption a crime.
But the anti corruption bill also has provisions to protect civil society organisations from prosecution.
This means that organisations that are not directly involved in the political process, such as student unions, can be investigated.
The bill has also been framed to protect women who have accused some politicians of abuse.
These allegations have already led to a slew of investigations, including against members of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which are currently in the courts.
The Bill will also give special powers to the police to monitor the activities of certain organisations, including political parties, and other organisations.
It also contains provisions for prosecuting anyone who has made a false statement.
The draft bill has been discussed for over a year now and the final text has not been finalised yet.
The second major change relates to the definition “corrupt transaction”.
The new law is also defined as being “any act which, with the intent of favouring or giving a preference, is likely, or can reasonably be expected, to give a preference or advantage to one party over another.”
This includes all transactions which are not in the interest of the public.
For instance, if the person doing the favour is a political party, it will not be a corrupt act.
However, if a company is doing business with the government, it could be.
The definition of corrupt transaction will also include transactions which, “are likely to afford or cause a disadvantage to the person to whom the transaction is made or to any person or entity who is affected by the transaction”.
This means there will be provisions for prosecution.
The police will be able to investigate all those involved in such transactions and prosecute them for the offence of corruption, even if the company involved has no connection with the party or politician.
There is also a provision to take into account the public’s right to information.
The Anti-Corruption Bill has been in the pipeline for a long time and is already being discussed by several political parties.
The opposition has argued that the proposed law is a response to the corruption scandals that rocked the state in the recent past.
They have also argued that there are legitimate questions over how the bill will be enforced.
The Government has also argued the law will protect the civil society.
In order to counter this argument, the Government has been arguing that the definition is an “anti-establishment” one, which is meant to protect “the public interest”.
However, this is not the case.
The anti-establishment argument is not based on any political party’s interest in winning elections, but rather on the public right to know.
This right is protected under the Constitution and the Supreme Court, which has said the definition does include a right to the information, which means the right to seek justice and get an accurate understanding of what is happening.
So, how will the anti corrupt law be implemented?
The Anti Corruption Bill has a number plans to bring in transparency, improve transparency and strengthen accountability in the state.
The legislation will also provide for a new criminal procedure to be made available for criminal proceedings against corrupt persons.
The current civil courts are still functioning and the current laws are in place
