The decision to change the rule of ACB was taken during the state’s cabinet meet chaired by Chief Minister Raghubar Das. With this, the earlier known Vigilance Bureau has been given new name and greater power.

Besides, the Cabinet also decided to provide tab to all girl students of 8th standards of state- run Kasturba Gandhi schools. There are about eight thousands students in class eight of total 203 Kasturba Gandhi Schools in Jharkhand.
