12th Plan: Full Chapter on Governance
There is a full chapter on governance that has a section on corruption in the Approach Paper to the 12th Five-Year Plan , which says: Measures should be taken to set up new institutions like the Lokpal and Lokayukta, which should investigate complaints of corruption and file cases against those against whom a prima facie case is made out.”
This is perhaps for the first time that corruption is being serious note of by planners in preparation of a five-year plan and ways are being suggested to tackle the menace which has agitated the country. The paper argues for setting up institutions like Lokpal and Lokayuktas to deal with the menace.
