Two Months For Lokayukta

The Supreme Court of India today asked the Odisha Government to complete the process of appointment of Lokayukta within the next two month.


Earlier the Apex Court had directed the Chief Secretary to submit a Status Report on the steps taken for appointment of a Lokayukta before July 10.
The State Government last time had informed the Supreme Court that Odisha Lokayukta Act, 2014 had come into force with effect from January 16, 2015 and the framing of rules for the Odisha Search Committee were under process.
The State Government issued a notification on 7 July saying, “In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (4) of section 1 of the Odisha Lokayukta Act, 2014 (Odisha Act 12 of 2018), the State Government hereby appoints the 7th July, 2018 as the date on which the said Act shall come into force.”
In fact, Odisha is the first State in the country to unanimously pass the bill in the State Legislative Assembly on February 2014 to set up the Lokayukta. The passed bill has also received the President’s assent on 28 January, 2015.
A ‘Search Committee’ has been formed to draw a panel of names for consideration of the Selection Committee for appointment of Chairperson and Members of the Lokayukta”.
“The Selection Committee shall constitute a Search Committee consisting of at least five persons of standing and having special knowledge and expertise in the fields and from the categories of persons specified in sub-section (3) of section 4 of the Act.”
As per the Notification, the ‘Selection Committee’ will be formed under the chairmanship of Odisha Chief Minister while the Speaker of the Odisha Legislative Assembly (OLA) and Leader of Opposition will be its Members.
Later BJD Spokesperson Sasmit Patra said, “As per the first step of Lokayukta, a Search Committee is constituted. This Search Committee recommends the names of the Chairperson and Members to the Selection Committee. The Selection Committee has already been formed. The recommendations made by the Search Committee are scrutinized.”
“The Gazette Notification clearly states the nature of activities by the Search Committee and its duration. Every member of the Search Committee will have duration of two years. Also the Terms of Reference and meeting procedures of the Search Committee have been mentioned in the notification,” he explained.
On the Supreme Court’s direction issued to Odisha Government today, the BJD spokesperson said, “We’re yet to receive the order of the apex court. State Government will take future course of action accordingly.”
