MISSION STATEMENT

Draft an ideal law for protection of Whistleblowers
in India and lobby to have it enacted by the Parliament.

Key activists from different states who are working on statewide laws and a nationwide act and overseas activists will use this group to formulate a working strategy and act on it.

The group will engage lawyers passionate about the act, former and current law enforcement and judicial officers who can assist in the act, and key activists, such as from the RTI movement, who have set a successful operating example to translate wishful thinking into a real law with teeth.
