my view is there is lots of constitution in our british system ,but who cares ? i have suggestions>
1] lokpal should have there seperate judicial system and there should be a deadline of completing every
case in timelimit of 1 year.
accused person of curruption can only go to suprime courte for against lokpal court.
2] system should be non costly to people ,and false case of curruption should give fine.
3]lokpal sould be elected by people and no currupt pollitition should allow to go for becomming lokpal.

The Prime Minister and the Judiciary system should be covered under the Lokpal Bill. Lokpal should be such a body that any official trying to take an advantage of the power of their position should be afraid of the consequences.

In regard to the inclusion of PM (CM in the case of Lokayukta), this JAN LOKPAL Bill could consider better controls before taking up complaints against PM or CM as well as against Chief Justice of Supreme court or High court. In other words making complaint against PM (Other higher positions) should be with sufficient strong and factual material. Though it may be so for every complaint, better we consider strict controls.

My suggestion on some contentious issues are:
1) Please do not to keep the PM and the CJI under the purview of the Lokpal. For it may create havoc if the Lokpal itself deem to be corrupt or too arrogant. I agree with Ramdev Baba that this raises a serious question on the democracy. We have seen the abuse of authority by T.N. Sesan in the 1990's. OR Even if you are stick to keep them under the purview of Lokpal, then keep some checks and balances like:
a) Prior Approval from the President before registering FIR/prosecution.
b) The decision to be taken by the "full" bench of the lokpal for registering any FIR/prosecution.
2) Regarding the conduct of MPs inside the parliament, the constitution itself provides a safeguard under article 122. If the court can't enquire into the proceedings of the parliament, how can the Lokpal do so? However, Lokpal can conduct enquiries outside the parliament for any corrupt acts, for e.g., in the cash-for-query scam, the Lokpal shouldn't enquire what did the MPs did in the parliament, rather it should enquire into whether bribe was paid to the MP or not, and the MP should be prosecuted for taking bribe. If you want to include this provision, then you have to go for constitutional amendment and the sitting MPs wouldn't allow you to do so.
3) Else all the ministers, officers, MPs and judges (including those of High Courts and Supreme Courts) should be included under the purview of Lokpal. There is no ground of keeping them outside the purview of Lokpal. But, as the rank/designation of the person in-charge increases, similarly the number of members of Lokpal bench should be increases. For eg.- a 7-bench Lokpal should decide on registering any FIR on any minister/secretaries/MPs/judges of HC & SC, a 5-bench Lokpal should decide on officers below joint secretary and judges of district courts, etc. Judicial Accountability bill should also be passed as soon as possible.
4) Also, provisions of the bill should be wisely designed so that independence of judiciary is not hampered, else it will strike down the law under judicial review, saying that it is inconsistent with the basic structure of the constitution. Also, if the government is concerned in strengthening investigating agencies, then it should consider bringing the CBI Act (drafted several times and referred to government) passed in the parliament as soon as possible. Merging of all investigating agencies - CBI, ED, IT, CVC - under Lokpal is must, else it will bring confusion and inefficiency in the delivery mechanism of anti-corruption machinery.

I am a senior citizen (age 70) retired having worked as an Automobile service engineer. I went through the salient features of the bill. At the outset it is a good approach. Generally in the judicial circle it is often told that THE LAW SHOULD BE SUCH THAT AN INNOCENT SHOULD NOT BE PUNISHED THOUGH A CULPRIT MAY BE LEFT. Keeping that in view I suggest that a person found guilty by LOKPAL must have the appeal against the judgement at least in the Supreme court and like wise in the high court in the case of Lokayukta. This appeal feature may or may not have the option for a STAY of the LOKPAL judgement.
This will ensure that any error in the lokpal judgement will have a chance for correction.

Prime minister should be covered under Lokpal, because not always do we have a Manmohan Singh as PM. There were times where Sharad Pawar had come close to become PM. Even Lalu Yadav and Mayawati were cherishing dreams of becoming PM. Under such circumstances it becomes imperative the PM does come under the ambit of the Lokpal. If the government does not want this, then one thing that our Lokpal can demand as a trade-off is electoral reforms in the below mentioned manner. If this demand is agreed to it would be heavens for Indian society.
1. There should be a provision for negative voting against candidates i.e. people should have the power to vote against a candidate. This will encourage people who don't like the electoral candidates, to come and vote against them.
2, A candidate receiving negative votes of more than 30 % of all votes should be debarred from contesting elections ever again. This will be a deterrent for criminals and corrupt people from standing in elections and would also be deterrent for the political parties from fielding candidates with criminal background.
3. Any case against an elected member should be given the top most priority and should be concluded at the Supreme Court level within 1 year. This will be a major deterrent for elected candidates against entering into corrupt practices.
4. Any pending case against any person should be put on fast track if he gets elected and it should be disposed within a year. Again, this will be a deterrent against fielding corrupt candidates.

We must bring PM's office, judiciary and all the sitting members of parliament under the purview of Jan Lokpal Bill. We should also have strict penal actions against the charges of corruption once proved. The penalties as strong as death sentence should be incorporated.
Stop corruption, save nation.

What we have seen from scores of scandles and scams are 3 things
1) Destruction of evidence and influencing the witnesses
2) Delay in investigation and prosecution due to Political pressure
3) Ridiculously slow judiciary process for conviction
It looks like point 2 and 3 are taken care quiet good in draft bill. I am worried about point 1. As we have seen from Adarsh scam, evidence is destroyed directly from Mantralay from the highest office in the state. Thats how chaos and anarchy is their in this country which unfortunately only few enlightened people can see. If we can ensure digitisation and security of all government documents and publishing to public before someone has to file an RTI application.
