Jharkhand Cabinet approved Jharkhand Special Courts Ordinance, 2015

Jun 4, 2015 12:43 IST

Jharkhand Cabinet on 3 June 2015 approved Jharkhand Special Courts Ordinance, 2015. The decision was taken during a Cabinet meet chaired by Chief Minister Raghubar Das.

These Special Courts will be established for speedy trail of corruption cases and will help in creating a corruption-free state.

Further these courts will enable prosecution of individuals responsible for hoarding black money and confiscate the illegal acquired property of the guilty.

The step to create such Special Courts was taken in light of increasing number of corruption cases under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 which resulted in delay in disposal of cases by the vigilance courts.

In this light, the Cabinet requested the Governor of Jharkhand Draupadi Murmu to provide clearance to the Jharkhand Special Court Ordinance, 2015 under Article 213 of the Constitution of India, which deals with the power of Governor to promulgate ordinances during recess of Legislature.
