The CBI welcomes your suggestions and look forward to interacting with you through this site.
The CBI welcomes information relating to corruption in Central Government departments and Central Public Sector Undertakings. The Website can be used to pass on the information. The identity of the informant will be kept secret.
Every State in India has at least one CBI office headed by a Superintendent of Police, where a signed complaint can be lodged. The complaint can be sent by post, fax or in person.
As a matter of policy the CBI does not entertain anonymous / pseudonymous complaints.
The CBI does not take up investigation of conventional crimes
like murder, theft, robbery etc
unless directed by the Supreme Court / High Courts or referred by State Governments.
This is because “police” is a State subject under the Indian Constitution and the basic jurisdiction to investigate crimes is that of State police. The CBI’s power to investigate cases is derived from the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act. The CBI can investigate the offences notified under this Act in the Union Territories and with the consent of State Governments, in the States. Besides, since the CBI is a small force, administratively also it has not been considered expedient for the CBI to investigate the conventional crimes unless directed by the Supreme Court/High Courts or referred by State Governments.
