The purpose of this postscript is to discuss some of the critical and contentious issues in the evolving debates relating to the drafting of the Lokpal Bill in India. One of the most important and central issues relating to the Lokpal Bill is about whether it establishes a single institution in the form of an Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) or rely upon Lokpal along with some of the existing institutions to fight corruption in a concerted manner. Other issues include the inclusion of the prime minister and the judiciary with the jurisdiction of Lokpal and the accountability of the Lokpal as an anti-corruption institution.
