New Delhi: In continuing crackdown against corruption, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today conducted a special drive against corruption, with more than 150 joint surprise checks (JSCs) at several places for suspected corruption across the country.

"These are being undertaken in association with the Vigilance Officers of concerned government departments, Ministries and organisations. Action is in consonance with the CBI mandate of anti-corruption work," the CBI said on Friday.

"The JSCs were conducted at such points and places of corruption where common citizens or small businesspersons feel maximum pinch of corruption in government machinery. This special drive will sensitise all stakeholders about possible avenues of corruption a common citizen faces, while seeking services from such departments. It also strives to identify and highlight points and places vulnerable to corruption," the CBI said.

The JSCs spanned departments covered by Railways, coal mines and coalfields, medical/healthcare orgainizations and customs.
