Mizoram's Lokayukta Drafting Committee has completed the draft Lokayukta Bill, 2014 and uploaded the bill in the state law department's website, officials of the state law and judicial department today said.
The officials said that anyone who has suggestions for changes, deletion and addition could submit to the Law Secretary within a month.
Meanwhile, state law minister Lalsawta told PTI that formation of the state Ombudsman could take time as the state government was waiting for the recommendations of the 14th Finance Commission for expenses for creation of the Lokayukta.
"We are fully dependent on the fund to be allocated by the 14th Finance Commission for creation of the state's anti corruption body", Lalsawta said.
