Abstract: The present study is an attempt to examine the powers, functions and contribution of the
institution of the Lokpal in the Punjab state of India. The study depicts that the institution of
Lokpal was constituted in the state for curbing corruption, inefficiency and abuse of power at the
level of ministers and higher bureaucracy. But unfortunately, the Lokpal in Punjab has failed to
achieve its purpose and mission for which it was formulated. Lack of independent and
autonomous structuring, and dearth of any practical powers to investigate and penalize the
accused prove the institution of Lokpal in Punjab as a watchdog without real teeth.
