Public Interest Disclosure and Protection of Informers
Public Interest Disclosure and Protection of Informers (PIDPI), 2004, commonly known as Whistle Blower provision, mandates the Central Vigilance Commission to receive and investigate on complaints or disclosure on any allegations of corruption or misuse of office from whistle blowers. The CVC has directed government departments to raise awareness about PIDPI to expose corruption within the government.
Whistle blower is the term used to describe someone who exposed corruption in government organizations. The PIDPI entrusts the responsibility of investigation of corruption to the CVC without disclosing the identity of the complainants so that they are protected from victimization.
