CBI took up countrywide Anti-corruption Awareness Campaigns by sending SMS to common man for creating awareness about CBI’s Anti-corruption initiative. Almost all the subscribers of GSM/CDMA service providers such as Airtel, Vodafone, MTNL, BSNL, Tata Indicom, Reliance, Idea, Aircel, BPL, etc. have been asked to send SMS to mobile users. As an outcome of these campaigns, numerous queries have been received by Anti Corruption Branches (ACB) of CBI regarding the nature of complaints CBI entertains, and the procedure for making such complaints to CBI, etc.

As a result of the campaigns, the complainants approaching Anti Corruption Branches of CBI have increased manifold (about 500). On the basis of SMSs received by general public 40 traps could be successfully laid during the last month. Additionally, some information about suspected offenders and also about cases already being investigated by CBI have been received and the same is under process for further necessary action.

The Anti Corruption Branch of CBI, Delhi, has asked the service providers to send this message :
“If a Central/Delhi Govt./PSU/Bank Employee demands bribe for any official work in Delhi, please contact S.P.,CBI at 24361535 / 3541 / 2494 or 9968081216 / 17 / 18”

Similar SMS campaigns have been undertaken at Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderdabad, Patna/Ranchi, Kolkata, Lucknow, Bhopal and Chandigarh regions. The telephone numbers being flashed by service providers all over India are :-
