SC refuses plea on alleged dilution of whistleblower law

  • SC refused to examine petition alleging dilution in Whistleblower Protection Act and seeking interim measures to protect whistleblowers who expose corruption in public administration and governance.
  • Appearing for a non-governmental organisation, Parivartan, Prashant Bhushan contended that the Whistleblower Protection Act 2011 was not notified and certain amendments were in the works to dilute the act.
  • The tone of the court hearing was in complete contrast to the earlier hearing in January 2016, when the apex court had pressed the Centre to put in place a fool-proof interim mechanism to receive complaints and protect the lives of whistleblowers till the law was enacted.
