In Jharkhand,it was much -awaited Act introduced and approved by the BJP government led by Chief Minister Raghubar Das.

The Act is expected to be utilised to recover the illegal properties of the corrupt public servants involved in disproportionate assets cases with an intent to see that they do not enjoy the ill gotten property or money during trial.
