The CBI has carried out joint surprise checks at 150 places across the country with the vigilance teams of the central government departments, Union Territories and public sectors undertakings.
It was conducted in places including Delhi, Jaipur, Guwahati, Srinagar, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Goa, Bhopal, Nagpur, Patna, Ranchi, Ghaziabad, Lucknow and Dehradun.
Official sources said, the exercise aimed to take forward Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s message of ease of living. The departments covered during the surprise checks include the railways, coal mines, coalfields, medical and health care organisations, customs and FCI.
The drive will sensitise all stakeholders about possible avenues of corruption and difficulties common citizens face while seeking services from such departments.
