Indian Peculiarism: States Veto Centre’s Fight Against Corruption

by M. Nageswara Rao, Oct 22, 2020 05:42 PM +05:30 IST

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) traces its origin to the Special Police Establishment (SPE), which was set up in 1941 by the government of India. The functions of the SPE then were to investigate cases of bribery and corruption involving transactions with the War and Supply Department of the central government during the Second World War.

Superintendence of the SPE was vested with the War Department. Even after the end of the War, the need for a central government agency to investigate cases of bribery and corruption by central government employees was realised. The Delhi Special Police Establishment (DSPE) Act was therefore enacted in 1946.

The author is former In-Charge Director, CBI. These views are personal.
