Bangalore:  Lokpal bill is a planned anti-corruption law in India. NGOs and Media Firms or companies proposed by the standing committee are bringing into Lokpal Bill.  No doubt these companies should come under scrutiny but along with that group C and D Central government officers as well as PM has to be included in this bill.



If it received then over 1.7 lakh Central Government Employees group A and B and over 4.5 lakh NGOs will come under the authority of Lokpal. Considerably the NGOs run by activists like Anna Hazare, Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal will also come under this Bill.



Team Anna have continued saying that along with NGOs, media firms or companies, all government employees should also be included which the standing committee excluded from the bill.



Additional concern is that, it will definitely create extra-burden on lokpal, an 11 member team if the excluded structure brings into it.  So for now the bill will cover only small group of government employees and all NGOs counting all those registered, unregistered, movements and trusts.



The draft report of lokpal distributed among the committee members and is likely to be discussed and finalize on November 30.
