The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau (VACB) will launch a toll-free mobile number and a new interactive website to enable easy access to the public.

The centralised system will be set up in Thiruvananthapuram and public can register their complaints through the toll free number and website from anywhere in the state.

Any call or complaint registered will be forwarded to the respective district headquarters to take immediate action.

Sanilkumar, SP (Intelligence) said that the new system will help people in registering their complaints quickly. As more and more cases are being registered against civil servants, this facility would help to trace the officials, who were causing hardships to the public.Complaints regarding delay on pending files or bribery cases could be registered through the toll free mobile number or the website.

The phone number and website address will be announced on Monday.

Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan will inaugurate the facility at Olympia Chambers, Chandrashekaran Nair Stadium, on Monday.

Principal Secretary Sajan Peter will preside over the function.
