An Official website of Jharkhand Lokayukta

About Us

The establishment of the institutions of Lokayukta is part of an ongoing effort to provide clean, transparent and accountable government to the people. Lokayukta today are the institutional manifestations of the need to provide a quasi-judicial body, which would act as a watchdog to pinpoint wrong doings of the administration, look into complaints of the victims of corrupt elements and suggest measures to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our Government.

Jharkhand Lokayukta Act was enacted in the year 2001. The office of Lokayukta Jharkhand became functional on 4th of December 2004 after a former Judge of Jharkahnd High Court, Justice Laxman Oraon was appointed as the first Lokayukta of Jharkhand. After his superannuation as Lokayukta in the year 2009, Justice Amareshwar Sahay, a former Judge of High Court of Jharkhand has been appointed as Lokayukta Jharkhand.
