Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced that the government will formulate a new independent law to seize the property of corrupt officials by the winter session of the state Legislative Assembly.

The CM while replying in the question hour of the assembly also conceded that the corruption has seepage deep in the system and said.

To curb corruption we need to make policies transparent and the government would go for e-governance so that there would be less human intervention. Right to service act is also part of it. The government is also taking help from the Enforcement Department in this issue to track the trail of corruption. We need to do series of reforms to tackle the corruption issue,” said CM Fadnavis.

The Chief Minister said,

The new law will give rights to the government to seize properties of such government officials. If not found guilty, properties will be handed back to the officers.

He also pointed out that when cases of corruption reach the courts, it takes years for the final judgment to pass. In the meantime the accused manage to get stay orders on action against them. Now, all the government officers will have to declare their assets. It will be made mandatory not only for officers but it has also been made compulsory for all government officials, including employees of Zilla Parishads and municipal corporations to declare their assets.
