BEIJING - China's top anti-corruption authority Thursday opened a new channel on its official website for tips related to lavish year-end behavior.

The Communist Party of China's (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) asked the public to report any "undesirable work styles," including lavish banquets, tourism, high-end entertainment activities and gifts using public money for the New Year and traditional Chinese Spring Festival.

The CCDI's website will name and shame those involved in cases of disciplinary violations for four consecutive weeks starting Jan 7, 2016. It also has a forum open to opinions and suggestions from the public on the anti-corruption drive.

The CPC started its eight-point frugality campaign in December 2012 to improve Party and government officials' work style.

China's Spring Festival, or the lunar new year, falls on Feb 8 in 2016.
