Andhra Pradesh Assembly passed Andhra Pradesh Special Courts Bill, 2015

Sep 4, 2015 13:58 IST

The Andhra Pradesh Assembly on 3 September 2015 passed the Andhra Pradesh Special Courts Bill, 2015 for the constitution of special courts to facilitate time bound disposal of corruption cases and attachment of assets.

The Bill will enable the State to recover wealth amassed by the corrupt public servants through exploitation of public property or in a benami manner.

The Special Courts Bill will ensure time-bound trial of the economic offences and will pave way for the State to recover the properties earned illegally and utilise them for the development of the State and for public good and purpose. Under Prevention of Corruption Act, State had no power to attach properties.

In the 11 charge sheets filed against economic offences in the State, 43000 crore rupees corruption money was involved and now the state government will recover these properties under the Special Courts Bill.

Other Bills passed in the Assembly

Along with the Andhra Pradesh Special Courts Bill, 2015, few other bills were also passed. These are:
• Andhra Pradesh (Telangana Area) Horse Racing and Betting Tax Regulation
• Andhra Pradesh Farmers' Management of Irrigation Systems (Amendment) Bill
• Andhra Pradesh Protection of Depositors of Financial Establishments (Amendment) Bill
