CBI conducts surprise checks across 150 locations

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is conducting a special surprise check across 150 places across the country. Top government departments including railways and coal are under CBI's scanner. These checks were conducted at various places due to suspected corruption.

The special drive was conducted primarily at such points of corruption where common citizens or small businessmen feel maximum pinch of corruption in the government machinery, they said.

The departments that came under scanner were railways, coal, custom department, Food Corporation of India, power, municipal corporation, ESIC, transport, CPWD, fire department, director of estates, sub-registrar office, GST department, public sector banks, agriculture, shipping, BSNL, steel, NHAI, and other departments.
