The plans of Narendra Modi-led NDA government to bring in a transparent, corruption-free system might take longer than expected, even on paper. In August 2014, all ministries and departments were instructed by the cabinet secretariat to prepare their ‘Corruption Mitigation Action Plans’ or CMAPs. But out of the 73 ministries and departments, only 32 had prepared and submitted these plans by February 1.


The mother document - RFD - itself is a mandatory requirement for all ministries. Prepared at the beginning of each fiscal year it comprises of priorities outlined by the concerned ministry, agendas of the ruling government’s manifesto, announcements by government and how these would be achieved. After six months, the list of objectives achieved is analyzed and targets reset. At the end of the financial year, a consolidated report is prepared that lists all achievements of the concerned ministry or department for that year.



But, in a response to the RTI, the cabinet secretariat said that less than half the total central government bodies - only 32 ministries and departments - had submitted their plans by November 10, 2014. Business Standard inquired about the status yet again in January 2015 and was told the status remained the same by the end of the month.
