Delhi-1031The Delhi government’s anti-corruption helpline has received a total of 20,656 calls within two days of its launch, a statement said on Tuesday. “Till 5 PM on Tuesday, a total of 20,656 calls were answered by the helpline,” the government said in a release.

As per data, 29 complaints were marked to the Delhi Police Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) for investigation, while 25 were not found fit to be referred to the ACB. Another 16 were pending for scrutiny while 10 were being followed up.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday relaunched the 1031 helpline — started during the earlier 49-day stint of the Aam Aadmi Party government — to curb bribery in government offices. The helpline will function 24×7 throughout the year.

Efforts were being made to ensure that no call remains unanswered, the statement said. (IANS)
