By : M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangaluru : The Hon'ble lokayukta and Hon'ble Upa-lokayukta is requested to ensure that no person or a public servant who has made a disclosure or filed complaint before them is victimized by initiation of any proceedings or otherwise merely on the ground that such person or a public servant had made a disclosure or rendered assistance in inquiry. The Whistleblowers Protection Act, 2011, is AN ACT to establish a mechanism to receive complaints relating to disclosure on any allegation of corruption or willful misuse of power or willful misuse of discretion against any public servant and to inquire or cause an inquiry into such disclosure and to provide adequate safeguards against victimisation of the person making such complaint and for matters connected therewith and incidental thereto.
