Bihar legislative Assembly on 4 August 2015 passed the Bihar Public Grievance Redressal Bill, 2015. The Bill was introduced by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the bill was passed by a voice vote.

The Bill is aimed at empowering the people to seek redressal of their grievances by government servants in a time-bound manner.

Under the proposed legislation, rules will be framed to make the government servants duty-bound to dispose grievances of the people in a time-bound manner and their failure to do so would amount to misconduct for which errant officials could be dismissed from service or will be penalised to pay 500 to 5000 rupees on failure to hear and redress grievances.

As per the proposed legislation, Public Grievance Redressal Officer and the first and second Appellate Authorities will have the same powers as vested in a civil court while trying a suit under criminal panel code and can summon any person and examine him on oath and receive evidence on affidavits.

Bihar Public Grievance Redressal Bill, 2015 will come into effect from the date of framing of rules in this regard.
