    As per the information received by RTI activist Anil Galgali from the Lokayukta, 15 complaints are registered every day at Mantralaya as the government has received 12,828 complaints in last 850 days. Of these complaints, 4,622 are pending. The number of solved cases is 12,237 but those were the cases solved before November 1, 2014.
