The Public Interest Disclosure and Protection to Persons Making the Disclosures Bill, 2010

The Public Interest Disclosure and Protection to Persons Making the Disclosures Bill, 2010
Country success is not only dependent on the economic progress; it should be coupled with effective governance and transparency in the administration of the government. Both Good governance and transparency are inseparable twins which must co-exist together. Improving Governance is a part of a development process. It is argued that corruption can be curbed by systematic changes in governance through introducing participation, transparency, accountability and probity in administration. The right to good governance is also considered as an essential part of the citizen’s rights that one can expect from the government. Accordingly, a number of initiatives have been taken by the government to incorporate citizen’s concerns as inputs in the formulation of policy as well as in the quality and reliability of services. These can be brought through various tools, including the Citizens’ Charters; Right to Information, e-Governance and new proposed one is law on whistle blower protection. Law on whistle blower and his protection is a welcome step towards better good governance and transparency in India.
