Corruption in India

In the current era, Corruption is a global phenomenon and it is ubiquitous. Corruption has progressively increased and is now widespread in our society. Corruption is spreading in India and becoming the main hindrance in the growth of the country like other developing countries of the world.

India ranks 120th on the Ease of Doing Business Index 2008 besides countries like China (83rd), Pakistan (86th), and Nigeria (108th).

Corruption has been one of the persistent problems affecting India from last many years. In India, corruption is growing in the form of bribes, evasion of tax and exchange controls, fraud and cheating, among others. It is the upshot of the link between bureaucracy, politics and criminals.

Although the economic reforms in 1991 lowered the level of the red tape, bureaucracy and the License Raj Yet, India is among 55 of the 106 countries where corruption is rampant, according to the Corruption Perception Index 2004 Report released by Transparency International India.

There are many causes behind the spread of corruption in the country which are as follows:
  • Deterioration of the ethical qualities and moral values of people working as govt. administrators.
  • Low salaries of government officials in such highly inflationary economy compel them to switch towards corruption.
  • Complex laws and procedures alienate common people to ask for any help from government.
  • The giant problems of poor economic infrastructure and illiteracy take the general public towards corrupted lifestyle.
  • Last but not the least one is the tolerance of people towards corruption, there is lack of protest against corruption.
