Whistle-blower is a person inside the organization who blows a whistle against any unlawful or immoral activity. The policy of the whistle-blower provides adequate safeguard to the whistleblower against unfair treatment by the alleged violator. Here I am referring the example of Gaurav Taneja ex- pilot of Air Asia was suspended because he informed DGCA about the violation of the safety norms which has been established by the DGCA. Another example is of Satyendra Dubey who was killed because he blowed the whistle against corruption. Through my paper I want to analyze and compare the legislation and associated administrative practices for managing the whistle blowing processes within the states of India, UK and USA. The researcher also analyses whether the whistle-blower legislation is different or similar in some extent in these countries. Through this paper author also try to find out whether there should be a common whistleblower policy for all the sectors of the society or specific legislations for every sector like private, corporate, government etc. By using the doctrinal research as method the researcher is also likely to figure out the problems involved in the execution of the whistle-blower legislation in the above said countries and with regard to conclusion the researcher analyses possible solution to the above said problems.
