FORM AND CONTENTS OF COMPLAINT

According to the rules a complaint should be signed by the complainant and shall be made in form-1. Although the rules prescribe a form in which the complaint has to be presented but a complaint on a plain paper is acceptable provided it contains adequate information to hold an enquiry. Such a complaint should invariably contain name and post held by the non-applicant, particulars of the allegations which are required to be enquired into and name and address of the complainant. A complaint may be presented to the Secretary to the Lokayukta or can be sent under a registered cover. The complaint should contain adequate and precise particulars to show that the case is covered within the expression 'allegation' as defined in Section 2 (b) of the Madhya Pradesh Lokayukt and Up-Lokayukt Act, 1981. The complainant is expected to verify facts and make correct averments after obtaining the relevant information by resorting to the provisions of the Right to Information Act and to annex with the complaint the relevant documents so obtained.

REQUIREMENT OF AFFIDAVIT AND FEES

In case the complaint is against a Minister (including Chief Minister) or Secretary (including Additional Chief Secretary, Principal Secretary or Additional Secretary) it shall be accompanied by an affidavit in Form-II in support of its contents. In case of a complaint against other categories of public servants, the complainant is required to submit affidavit in Form-II only if directed to do so by the Lokayukt or Up-Lokayukt.

The rules also prescribe that a fee of Rs.25/- shall be paid in judicial stamps for filing a petition of complaint against any Minister or Secretary. In case of complaint against other categories of public servants, the complainant is required to pay a fee in judicial stamps only if directed to do so by the Lokayukt or Up-Lokayukt. -
