I feel that following shall be considered :
1. The persons in the lokpal committee shall essentially not be taken from any political party otherwise it will become another political platform.
2. There shall be an induction phase for the committe where they should be given necssary training about the various functions,codes of conduct, constitutional sections, working and etc. needed to do their job and also they should be detailed about the activities and cases there predecessors have been working on.
3.In almost all the government systems there are computers now a days so merely just using it as an entry box an online system shall be made which gets into the workflow and checks the working of the government system and helps the lokpal also. I have the draft for the same with me. I request you to call me(+919915576298) or mail me so that I can get in touch and discuss the wholwe draft in person.

Most importantly bring transparency in making this draft, what is the problem in going live during draft committee meeting? Let the people know what is the law our lawmakers are preparing for us? How honest their approach is?
I urge that :
1. PM should be included in Lokpal bill.
2. Judiciary should be included in Lokpal bill.
3. People grievances should be heard by both Lokpal and Lokayukta.
4. It is the combined responsibility of the the executive, the judicial and the legislative to protect whistle blowers.

Suggestions to eliminate corruption from our society.
( A ) All MPs, Civil servants, all senior beurocrats should be assessed / investigated by Lokpal for their current net worth as compared to their net worth at the time of joining their respective posts / Indian political system. In case a considerable increase is found, they should be asked for the justification as regards to their source of income and whether appropriate tax has been paid by them. Their entire family should be assessed for this purpose. This exercise should be repeated after every five years.
( C ) Any misrepresentation in this regards should be treated as crime against nation.
(D ) Trial of persons failing in above criteria should be completed in fixed 12 months time.
(E ) If proven guilty, minimum punishment should be of 10 year imprisonment like a normal criminal extending up to cancellation of citizenship of his / her entire family along with life imprisonment of accused depending upon gravity of crime. Entire process of pronouncing judgments should be completed within fixed 12months directly by a five member bench of Supreme Court including chief justice further reconfirmed by LOKPAL COMMITTEE
( F) Any illegitimate transfer of funds to overseas by any Indian citizen should be treated as crime against nation and should be dealt with in a similar way as mentioned above.
(G) A regular court case should be settled within a maximum period of 3 months. In case of clemency by president, It should be decided within a period of 15 days from the pronouncement of judgment by the supreme court. Help of retired judges can be taken to settle cases of petty nature / Civil cases.
(H) Income tax refunds should be made before next financial year without any excuse or pending investigation. All formalities should be completed before the next financial year failing which claims by the assessee should be settled without further questioning. The only exception should be a criminal case filed.
(I) Income Tax return should have a column for overseas bank accounts and balances

1. Lokpal should have its own independent investigating agencies and not use the existing govt's agents.
2. Each and every complaint, no matter how much small it is, should be addressed.
3. Any person who have ever participated in elections or have been a member of either of political parties in his lifetime should be disqualified to join directly or indirecty the office of lokpal.
4. There should be a seperate office with similar powers to solve small and petty cases, so that te setup is not overburdened.
5. Their should be absolutely no fees for filing any complaint of corruption, as it discourages common people and whistleblowers.
6. Their should be complete privacy and non disclosure of names of the complainant so as to protect them from being victimised.
7. Special steps to be taken to protect whistleblowers.
8. Using of faster means of communication should be allowed and promoted such as emails, sms's etc.
9. There should be a provision to support sting operations and where common people can take audio/video evidences and submit the same.

Hats off to Anna Hazare and the group negotiating with the government. It is the most intelligent group to have come to fore in our public discourse since independence. Not taking away anything away from equally well intentioned people before raising similar issues (e.g., Jai Prakash Narayan, Acharya Kriplani) in the past but their solutions were individualistic (Indira hatao) not systemic.
However with due respect, I have to say that the Jan Lokpal Committee appears recently to be focusing on the wrong issues in many instances, while ignoring really important issues. The most important elements to a successful Lokpal are perhaps independence, adequate resources/budget, sub-peoana powers and supporting fast track courts. And most importantly a mandate which can be fulfilled within that budget instead of being over-whelmed like the CBI (which even you concede it is).
Why is it important that the Prime Minister is in the scope or not, can't we make that exclusion to begin with? Again, why should the Lokpal have the mandate to expedite ration cards and voted id cards (as you mention in your draft) - isn't that likely to over-whelm the institution with work that it has no resources to perform adequately? By proposing some of these things, you appear to be suggesting the creation of a monster institution with un-predictable consequences for democracy.
If you are not measured, thoughtful and careful about your arguments and suggestions, you will lose all your support where it matters. Please be careful. There is already genuine concern about what you are doing and a hardline stance will un-necessarily erode your credibility.
Why are you doing this? I sure hope these are negotiation tactics to get what is truly important for the LokPal institution to be effective. May God be with you in your good work!

Considering the magnitude of corruption pervading our public life, it is likely that the Lok Pal, when put in place, will be overwhelmed by the number of complaints that it receives. It is quite likely that its functioning may be considerably jeopardised by the sheer magnitude of tasks at its hand. It is, therefore, necessary to look into the logistics at the disposal of the Lok Pal, or alternatively, its jurisdiction. If it is considered to have a large number of members in the Lok Pal panel, their quality will be a casuality. Besides, even the members of lok pal will have to be under active public gaze to ensure that they perform their duty diligently. Considering the above factors, it may be considered by the panel members to exclude public servants below the rank of Deputy Secretaries to the GOI from the jurisdiction of Lok Pal. This will ensure effective control of Lok Pal on its affairs and enable it to bring guilty officers at middle and senior level to book. Else, it will be grappling with complaints of 500 Rs. bribes taken by peons and dealing hands, while others make merry with thousands of crores. It may be also noted that the conduct rules of government servants require them to ensure that their subordinates perform their duties honestly. Therefore, a provision may be kept in the Lok Pal Bill to make public servants of Deputy Secretary level and above, personally liable for the misdeeds of their subordinates. Needless to mention, this needs to be supplemented by adequate powers to such officers, and enabling provisions in relevant rules, to empower them to initiate quick and effective action against their delinquent subordinates. A separate law, or an authority subordinate to or working under the supervision of Lok Pal, may be had to deal with the corruption by lower officials of the Government effectively without jeopardising the functioning of Lok Pal.
I would be grateful if these are looked into.
