DMPQ: CBI autonomy is under serious crisis. Suggest the possible solutions to address the issue. (Polity)

  • Liberate CBI from political interference:Lokpal should be allowed to decide cases which CBI takes up; CBI to report to Lokpal for investigation of such cases; Lokpal can supervise and oversee CBI.
  • Substitute archaic DPSE act by new CBI act; clearly re-defining the role, jurisdiction and legal powers of CBI. Criminal culpability for political interference.
  • More establishment in form of judges, prosecutors and support staff for CBI.
  • Have a dedicated cadre for CBI.
  • Autonomy akin to CAG
  • Criminal culpability for political interference for violating the autonomy of CBI.
