Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced Thursday an online software to get hold of corrupt officers in government offices across the country.

Initially the system will be installed in respect of IAS officers posted at the Centre and later to be extended to all the India Services officers and Group A employees too who are serving in the Central government. It will also be adopted by state governments finallly to cover All India Services officers who are serving in the states.

The software is designed to provide pending cases status on real time accompanied with alerts of timeframes as indicated in the rule.
