Himachal Pradesh Police will post names of corrupt government functionaries on its official website, a senior official said on Sunday.
"We will soon post the names of corrupt officers on the website of the vigilance bureau," Director General of Police (Vigilance and Anti-Corruption) DS Manhas told IANS.
He said the corrupt officers would mean those against whom either challans have been produced in the court or chargesheets have been filed.
"It would be an interactive site and would also enable people to file complaints. But no anonymous complaints would be entertained," the official said.
The vigilance bureau this month arrested Himachal Pradesh Electricity Board's chief engineer (operations) Litesh Malhotra while accepting a bribe of Rs 425,000 from a contractor.
Senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Sanjay Gupta, who was managing director of the General Industries Corporation, was arrested in July from a hotel in the state's Parwanoo town with Rs 200,000 in cash.
