Public accountability in the recent times has evolved to a level, making it is of immense importance in good governance. Corruption can be checked by installing a systematic structure which would evolve and create independent sources of power and information both inside and outside the government. These structures primarily complement the various reforms and strategies aimed at reducing corrupting opportunities. In a system of public accountability a democratic channel is always ensured.This paper discusses accountability in the light of the Indian scenario and the emerging Lokpal which is a step towards democracy in India.
