The Bill, passed by the Assembly in November 2015, proposes that salaries of babus be automatically deducted in cases of delay in delivery of government services.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had described the passage of the Bill as a “huge victory” in the fight against corruption.
According to the AAP government, the amendments seek to rectify the current Act which has put the “entire onus” of getting compensation, fixing the responsibility for delayed services on the citizen.
