About the Referral
"Corruption is a challenge that no country or sector can claim to be immune to", as acknowledged by the UNODC report on Corporate Integrity - Incentives to corporate integrity in accordance with the UNCAC (published in May 2013).

Albeit numerous studies on corruption have been published in India, a significant gap exists in the awareness of 'where' and 'how' to report corruption in an appropriate manner. For a lay person in India, it is difficult to identify the relevant contact person in a government department - at the national or state level to report an act of corruption in an appropriate manner. This is primarily on account of the existence of different organizational structures for different departments and information being scattered across multiple sources in the public domain. Secondly, in light of the recently (February 2014) approved Whistle Blowers Protection Bill 2011, providing information about the anti-corruption or vigilance desks where a complaint can be made would assume increased importance.

Hence, a need was felt for the creation of the National Anti-corruption Referral: Key contacts in vigilance and anti-corruption desks across India (hereinafter referred to as "The Referral"). The Referral has been compiled with the primary objective of providing all the relevant information in a single place, thereby facilitating the common citizen of India in registering an act of corruption in a timely manner. In particular, the Referral is easy to search and navigate.

The Referral includes the following:
