Mumbai: Anonymous complaints or complaints without any documentary proof should not be entertained by officials, the Maharashtra government has said in a new order.
As per a government resolution (GR) issued on September 24, a complaint where the sender has not identified himself or herself or has not attached any proof should be junked.
If a complaint comes from an employee's union, it should not be entertained unless it is on the union's formal letterhead, it said.
