How to Eradicate corruption In India

Indians think that corruption cannot be eliminated in India – at least not in their lifetime. This pessimistic and cynical perception of the people is largely an outcome of confusing corruption with all kinds of illegal actions and activities like dishonesty, cheating, Duping etc. Most illegal actions, many of which are private actions, are confused with corruption.


Corruption is defined as the use of public office for private gains. Scales of corruption can be Grand, Middling or Petty and payment of bribes can be due to collusion between the bribe taker and the bribe giver,
Many corrupt practices fall outside the purview of existing laws The responsibility for dealing with corrupt people, on individuals, civil society institutions, legislature, executive, and the judiciary.


India is one of the most regulated economies with powers concentrated in few hands. It is a poor country with scarce resources where Demand is always more than supply. The receivers of the public services are largely poor, ignorant, and illiterate. There is also absence of transparency and accountability of the public servants. There is no system of rewards and punishments for the public servants. There is also no right to information.

But Our Indian Politicians from Village level, Councilor level, MLA / MLC of Districts , Chief minister of states MP of States and Prime minister our India escape all the laws as they have the complete powers with them .

An estimated sum of Rupees 26,768 Corers are extracted from citizens who interact with these sectors.
In October 2009, the former Chief Minister of the state of Jharkhand, Madhu Koda, was charged with laundering money worth over INR 40 billion. Koda was serving time in jail pending further investigations.

inspector regime is pervasive in India since independence and continues even after liberalization and globalization of 1991. In addition, there are 3000 central statutes and 10 times as many state statutes plus subsidiary and administrative laws (most of them archaic),

With several Exemption clauses and discretionary powers sans accountability. All these conditions are fertile breeding grounds of corruption. At present, 19.5 million people hold public office with central and state governments, quasi-central and quasi-state institutions, and rural and urban local bodies spread over 200,000 establishments and offices all over India.

Prime Minister Man Mohan Singh is now serving his second term after his party, the Congress Party, won a huge victory in the 2009 parliamentary elections. During his first term, Singh declared the fight against corruption to be a priority

Public servant

19.5 million public servants exercise their. Powers control and regulate the remaining thousand million citizens. Since 90 percent of these 19.5 million public servants are, Class III and Class IV employees. Power is concentrated in the hands of less than 2 million public servants who regulate and control the fate of a Thousand million people.

The number of government establishments and offices have doubled from approx100,000 to 200,000 in the last two decades and the number of government servants has bloated from 15.5 million 1981 to 19.5 million today.

8. Minority

This minorityhas the potential to indulge into corruption in all its forms and scale giving India an image of one of the most corrupt countries of the world. The remaining 17.5 million public servants with limited powers can indulge in petty corruption only.

9. The Task

The Task should be taken up seriously and vigorously by civil society, institutions using committed judiciary and lawyers because the government functionaries alone can never do this. At present, the perception is that government can eradicate corruption and responsibility of government alone. Thus, the responsibility and the onus of combating corruption are as much of the people and the civil society institutions as that of the government

10. Follow-up:
A mere shouting slogans / raising voice are not an end in itself. Results need to be published to raise public awareness focus debates and promote institutional reform.

To this end, We all as Anna Hazare Movement Anti corruption in India has to undertake the following steps:

f) Press for transparency in actions of the government agencies in the discharge of their functions.

g) Strongly bid for accountability of all functionaries.

h) Continue the programs already in hand for Moral and Ethical education, introducing
Lok Pal (Ombudsman), and e-readiness and judicial reforms.

i) Lobby for immediate legislation of the Right to Information Act.

13. Charters will go a long way in controlling corruption. The Anna hazare Movement of India has launched an ambitious programme for formulation and implementation of Citizens Charters in all government departments. To over see the implementation and diffusion of these Charters, there must be Watch/ Monitoring Committees Consisting of both public service providers and service receivers.
