After assuming the role of Director General (DG) of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), Rajasthan, Dr Ravi Prakash Meharda outlined his priorities on Saturday in combating corruption in the state, backing the state government’s “zero tolerance” policy towards corruption.
Upon taking charge, the DG, ACB Meharda said, “My priorities are set: to timely resolve cases, strengthen the information system, and decrease the pendency. We all know about the government’s priority, which is zero-tolerance. We will all work in that respect.”
Expressing his approach towards addressing the challenges faced by the state, Meharda mentioned that he would engage in constructive dialogue with his team.
“I have joined today, and among all the peculiar issues in the state, I will discuss with the team and bring out some scheme that could be beneficial for the state. We will support the government in its ‘zero tolerance’ policy towards corruption. While following the directives given by the government, if there are any issues like a shortage of resources in the ACB, we will expect those to be fulfilled by the government,” he added.
Following his transfer from the position of DG SCRB and cybercrime, IPS Ravi Prakash Mehra assumed the role of DG of Rajasthan ACB on Friday. He is a senior IPS officer from the 1990 batch.
