Whistle-blowers bill passed by Lok Sabha

New Delhi : The Lok Sabha late Tuesday night passed the whistle-blowers bill, providing protection to those providing information about corruption.

The Public Interest Disclosure and Protection to Persons Making the Disclosures Bill, 2010, (the whistle-blower protection bill) was passed after the Lokpal bill, as amended, was voted by the house, but the constitutional amendment bill that sought to accord statutory status to the anti-graft ombudsman was defeated.
