JAIPUR: In an effort to thwart the attempts of corrupt officials who often use lengthy court cases to their advantage, the state government has come up with a draft bill that empowers the officials of Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) to confiscate their assets without permission from the government and courts. As per current practice, confiscation of disproportionate assets of public servants is a tedious task for the anti-corruption officials. By the time the case gets disposed, they manage to conceal the property.
The property seized will be placed in the custody of an officer appointed as custodian by the state government.
