Jaipur. Rajasthan Government has proposed to enact the Rajasthan Special Courts Act to enable speedy trial in corruption cases and to attach properties and assets acquired by public officials through corrupt means disproportionate to their known sources of income.
The draft of the Bill, which will be brought during the current session of the State Assembly, was approved by the state Cabinet under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot this morning (2 March 2012).
The new law would also allow setting up of seven more special courts in addition to existing six special courts, for hearing such cases, an official spokesman said.
On passage of the Bill, Rajasthan will become the third state after Bihar and Orrisa, to have such special law.
