Even after 62 years of india's independence , the plight of commonman has worsened. Corrupt public servants , corrupt judges , corrupt police , etc are proving to be parasites leading 5-star lifestyles at taxpayer's expense. They in their greed for money , bribe are aiding & abetting terrorists , separatists , naxalites, underworld mafia , etc covertly & overtly , backstabbing our motherland. These corrupt public servants  are more cruel than Jalianwallah Bagh butcher General Dyer of british army. If Mahatma Gandhi  was alive today , he would have been disgusted with the present way of democratic government , functioning of public servants & would have died heart broken. If our freedom martyrs like sri.Bhagath Singh or Sri. Madan Lal Dingra or Sri.Subhash Chandra Bose would have been alive , they would have given a befitting reply to this corrupt police , corrupt judges , public servants.

Whenever , a commonman raises his voice for justice , he is silenced in various ways by the criminal nexus. The said criminal nexus has previously tried to silence me in many ways including attempts to murder , closure of newspaper etc.

Corruption is everywhere in the world. But the form and degree varies and it relativity changes as the time progresses.

Corruption begins, when desire overtakes deserving. And it is always there from ancient times, and will always be there at all places. It is a polite alternative in a civilised society to snatch from the desriving. The same thing in an un civilised world is a more straight and dignified form - that is by using might or aggression, things got done by those who were desiring more than the deserving.

Yes, it can. But for that each one of us has to be corruption free. To start with, everyone of us has to promise ourselves that come what may, we will not bribe anyone with anything, we will not ask for any undue favour depriving the deserving one. If the giver is ready, how can there be a receiver?

Why Not, but it should start from you. You as an individual not different from the society. Dont offer and accept the bribe. You and me and we as whole can do it. We are bribing someone with an intention to get the work done at the least minimum time and by flouting the norms. So we as an individual encouraging the bribe.

You can read a book, enlightening your mind is inside your mind.And yes a corruption free country is possible and its already there its just every individual need to act honest,responsible, stand for your rights and others and you do not need a magic wand. But its not possible because we are not saints but Indians. Another way is a revolution and mind it that doesn't mean a Anna Hazere protest,thats nothing more then a couple of days masala news.As a wise man said"revolution always comes out of a barrel of a gun" and i trust my country thats again never gonna happen we are happy going to Anna Hazare weekend picnic protests and thats even make us guilt free that we are doing nothing for our country......Yeah its fun........And you can also see girls there.....

"A single person cannot change the world" it is a saying we take for granted. but why not try to change... we can be true in our dealings and the duties which we deliver... i believe corruption can be minimized upto some extent if the people  who criticize and complain about its ill effects, try to be honest to themselves... many drops make the ocean. likewise each individual make the society. so let each of us join hands and pledge that we ll not be corrupt and gradually you will be able to see how it works

Anna Hazareji's idea of Jan Lokpal appears laudable now; but the lurking danger is, in due course of time, it could turn out to be another power centre and breed corruption with impunity. Citizens should beware of this impending danger. If we wish to transform India, instead of creating more institutions and power centres, we need to break them up and ultimately get them removed; and instead introduce transparency in all actions of all individuals and organizations, including government. There should be no secrecy whatsoever, including in armed forces and judiciary which is reported to abound in corruption. "Ban Currency" and seek introduction of "Random, Encrypted Unique ID and Biometric Smart Card" for making all transactions anonymous, fail proof and secure with audit trail for total transparency and total accountability? This could be the panacea for all evils of corruption, money laundering, etc. and restore true democracy and level playing field for all in India.

I completely agree with arijita and would like to emphasize again on the point that it is a UNITED effort and no single person or institution can change it !

Moreover we should all take part in just and legitimate practices and importantly BELIEVE that we can make India a corrption free nation.  However it is also very sad to read the views on the right hand side.  People seem to be very pessimistic and until we have those kind of people it would be really difficult to achieve the said feat. period.

First time I saw this argument. To me corruption is nothing but just moral degradation. Blame it on our education systeme. Absolutely corruption free state is almost impossible. Because from the origin itself two forces (good & bad) were there and it will remain there for ever. If crrupyion is not there then we cannot realise what is corruption free. Thing is that which environment is good for us. Corruption means chaos. All our problems' root lies deep in the corruption. We all have to work towards achieving the ideal corruption free world. For this we should infuse some moral into ourselves, our homes and to our society, though proper education system. For this we have to work towards modifying our education systems.

1800 - 1500 ... If people think, they are toll free numbers ... they would be sadly mistaken.

It may be just the tip of the ice berg ... corruption figures just unearthed from a single individual ...

Rs. 1,800 crores of hard cash and 1,500 kilograms of gold said to have been ceased from the offices / residences of Ketan Desai, President, Medical Council of India.

Obviously many under-hand dealings must have been going on for quiet some time; he must be well connected with the powers that be, having got re-elected and to daringly indulge in such large scale corruption. If a public enquiry is conducted, many heads may roll.

There may be many more such corrupt officials in India. If all of them are caught, the Government may get a few lakhs crores of rupees which can be used for genuine poverty alleviation schemes.

Telgi, Raju, Koda, Ketan, and many more ... Is this not enough reason for the Government to demonetize currency in steps (immediately rs. 1,000 and Rs. 500 currency notes and the rest in due course of time) and introduce Biometric Smart Card based transactions for eliminating corruption.

Please circulate to all well meaning citizens for a public debate on "The need to kill the cancer of corruption before it kills us".

Yes according to my studies on humanity through history and based on the prophecies this is possible in this century. we have seen the history of only selfish and greedy human. Well exceptions were there and they were known as saints or prophets. This is due to the magnetic field control on human brain living on the earth. This new millennium is changing the magnetic effect on the earth. The processing started from 1997 and expected to be completed by couple of years. We can be proud of being on the earth when the change is taking place. good luck all human for a peaceful earth

Corruption free India is very much possible and with the active participation of the responsible citizens. Earlier we didn't had too much options to stop corruption but now we have too many options.

We have RTI (Right to Information Act) which we can use to ask anything and everything except the things which harm the sovereignty of our country.

We must use our Voting Rights to choose the correct people as our leaders not the Politicians like Buta Singh.

We should have the right of negative voting so that we can throw out the person who is not working properly and efficiently.

We should also initiate ourselves in using the right procedure for every work to be done. We ourself use shortcut which increase corruption.

Stop giving bribe and those who take should stop taking it being a responsible citizen of India.

I am very much assured that if each and every citizen of India starts taking responsibility then we would be able to see a corruption free India very soon.

Everybody or everyone does know that everything is not perfect. Then what is the use of talking about change or what made you to talk about the change? Is change we need? What kind of change do we need? Corruption free nation? In order to change the nation we should change ourselves.

We must improve the nation governing process and the gov could issue the salary slip for them. SO everything will be under one account and easy to track them.

Complulsory voting and compulsory devoting should be implemented.

Yes, it is possible to cub corruption in India. Here, all are only talking/arguing on this issue; No one is going to take even a single step ahead. It can be controlled by supporting or growing good moral value in rem. we have to educate, in particular, our young, about the moral value. respect of different institutions in society. unless the respect of moal values go deep into the root of society corruption can not be curbed. By blaming police, politician and officials. every people grow in the society and the best way to eliminate the root cause of problem is to make a good society and follow the norms of a good society.

Yes it is possible. Our great Dr.Abdul Kalam once spoke about it. He says that your parents and teachers should play a vital role in nurturing the good moral values in children which will be useful to make corruption free society. Eradicating or preventing the corruption is not possible cent percent as everybody knows, but, if we take some concrete and planned steps, we can reduce the rate of corruption. There is no way to eradicate or prevent the corruption except nurturing good moral values in children as our great Kalam says. Many may feel that with stringent laws, we can eradicate corruption, but, it is not possible. The only way to reduce the rate of corruption and to make the corruption free world, at least to feel, is to follow what our great Kalam has said. We need some reforms in our educational system also and we need to make it compulsory to every school to have good provision to teach morals to the Children.

It is absurd to say " YES". But can say " minimised in degree & level " by levering certain administrative steps , legal procedure strict & delivering goods in time, emulating every individual morally not to be corrupted or induce others to corrupt &  also, allowing masses to follow " let live policy" without being corrupted.

Business organisations, by virtue of its existence, try their best to flees money from various organisation including the Govts. of various country. In the bargain, few individuals or small organisations go pray. We can not preclude this kind of situations. It is, therefore, only the way to see that the guidelines set-in are followed without hampering the ordinary citizens & the benefits so aimed at, is serving the mass in progress / development.

We see that, generally, the normal earning is multiplied in many ways. You can say that it is "inflation or money loosing value". But, to compensate the present & prevailing environment, individuals living standards have improved. But, many who are not achieving it, need to exercise their skill more to obtain it, instead of, just expecting windfall from others / Govt. Duty comes first & foremost for survival than the Privilege. We find most of the people look for privilege first than their Duties. This trend should vanish.

Political parties / NGOs are thriving only on ideology than doing services to its Client (party worker/ section of the people). It is basically, requiring holding moral value without hampering their living subsistence.

No. Same over all the world as far as humanity was there and is going to be there. Aham ie. self is the spice of life. When in situations of 'demand exceeds supply' self become aggressive and turn to selfishness that is always natural phenomenon and need not be harm full until selfish attitudes become greed.

Jumping  various forms of queue we face in life everywhere at the discomfort of the other fellow humans is form of corruption. How many of us think it that way. Inequality that is either by way of the environment one is born into or created by society push people to adopt corrupt practices to get even in the environment. In an environment where demand increases supply to a very high magnitude, certain amount of corruption acts like grease to cogs in the wheels. How many of has have not used that path to have a smoother existence at the expense of that of others. It takes us back to reminiscence the old saying "One not sinned only should throw stone at the sinners'

However, Situation in India is a bit different from what I have been trying to say above. In a country the professionals become professional by spending huge money would definitely want to make it back and never find the means adopted that wrong, not withstanding the truth that they became professionals only because there is scope of getting even.

Same goes with the political leaders. Most get elected have to spend huge money whether,  black or white, is immaterial and the main object of becoming a politician turns from the ideology of doing public service to humanity to money making anyhow, like every other professionals of this age.

It is alright up to a point as otherwise who be interested in this thankless dirty job. But then our political masters irrespective of which flags they flaunt, have reversed the essence of Democracy. Instead people owning the government and elected representatives as middlemen between people and the government, comprising well defined hierarchical setup of trained and experienced Executive and Bureaucracy, only through that governance can only be done properly, Political class have made the governance machinery subservient to them putting the cart before the horse. If we analyze closely this is the main reason for most of the ills we see around in various forms killing the this wonderful nation that is made of beautiful beads of hundreds different color and texture.

Over and above the inborn nature of humanity's anxiety to find some scapegoat for all their ills, be it real or mostly imaginary, in the shape of God, fate, astrology, and their Country and those who govern it. It will go on until the environment change and Supply nearing or  become equal to demand and the stake holders become an even generation, unlike we are growing in enormous proportion, beating supply.

Coruption free India / world may not be possible, but be minimized.

We may stipulate so many things to be corruption free which may not be achived for so many reasons. It often sounds like : " conditions apply ". Now, what may be a single point solution ?

In my thought : Corruption may be minimized by " increasing the standard of living of the citizens ". Only this may bring all round changes amongst the vast massses who in turn may effect those stipulations essential to reduce corruption ( again a matter of Economics / Economy ).

NO, 'Corruption free India' or 'Corruption free world' is never going to be a ground reality. Yes, corruption can be minimized if law enforcement is made stricter. The only foreseeable solutions are:

  • Make law enforcement the code of daily living for the pauper to the president.
  • Enforce moral values as a compulsory subject throughout the education stream.
  • Make achievable Independence of the judiciary
  • Generate employment.
  • Strengthen Social engineering and campaigning.

WAKE UP ITS YOUR INDIA TODAY, TOMORROW IT WILL BE SOLELY 'CORRUPTIONS' AND NEXT IT WILL BE NOBODY'S. IT WILL BE JUNGLE RULE.

By all the experience and knowledge people have shared here, the fact is people are aware of the changes which might lead to stop corruption in India, but the fact is so practically "NO".

People can't shun greed and this will continue...   We can only hope for a better people to join the system and bring the change for us.. Or we can be the change!

Just imagining hypothetical situations and telling that India can be free of corruption is easy! But wake up n c around.

As long as our democracy, political system & politicians doesn't change, nothing is going 2 happen. Increasing moral values may (?!) reduce corruption at lower levels. But the politicians gulping down multi crores thru all big deals, political games won't allow India to be corruption free- how 'll they buy their bread n butter? Most of them don't know or do any productive work, except just nurturing the criminal nexus and benefitting from it in various ways.

Strong legislations & an unselfish political leadesrship with real virtues are the only solutions which I never expect in India.

Corruption can never  be eradicated as there will someone or the other who will accept, demand or offer a bribe. However, it can be greatly reduced by:

1) Increasing the courtrooms and judges who are trying the Prevention of Corruption Act cases in every city

2) Increasing the quantum of punishment for both givers and takers of bribes

 

3) Increase the rewards for Vigilence Cell officers who conduct sting operations and nab corrupt officials

4) Increase public awareness so that people choose better leaders and the rot does not affect the top-level that much

It is very well said that "Charity begins at home" but now it is said that "Corruption begins at home", the responsible people behind it are we the people. No doubt we boost of making India a corruption free society but unless we take a step forward towards it. No one wants to stand in the queue and wants his work done at the proce of money, then be it the queue of rice,sugar and wheat or for taking the permission for any industry, no one wants to be in queue. Unless we change ourselves the country cannot change.

Secondly the imablance of income among the population also gives rise to the corruption.

Thirdly government servants are paid less which increases their urge to get corrupted as they could easily hold the nerves of the people who want their work to be cleared out from these offices.

I support Mr. Kastury!

Responsibility is not individualistic, its a community responsibility. Corruption is not a phenomenon observed only in India, its universal and like Mr. Kastury has rightly pointed out, it varies in degree and form. Politicians have a different form of greed, a sweeper something different! So each one of the factions of the demographic will have a variant in the degree of acceptance. Till such time that there is a sure existence of evil in the society corruption in one form or another will definitely exist and it cannot be culminated completely!

The emotion of owning more than my neighbor does always gets you in a situation where it leads to thoughts that deviate away from idealisitic behavior!

Till Indian  form of democracy is switched to some form of  government, corruption will be here. It is the full power of democracy - the right of people and teh citizen which allows them to do whatever they wished for.  Let's cahnged  or  stopped democracy and make a strict rule  for  a decade, india will changed a lot, the MPs of low standard, bubus will not be seen in and around the office and governement. that time India will be free from corruptions.

Right Corruption is everywhere in the world.

Corruption was injected into the spine of Indian nation when Mirzafar backstabbed Shiraj ud daula.

Subhash Chandra Bose was selected for IAS but he given extreme sacrifice and formed Army against the worlds strongest army--But he was termed as anti Indian by many.

Where will you find such people now?

We are all shrewd politicians in our lives--in our family also--and in our profession too.

and the base line is you know what?

We all killed the GOD--so we are not afraid of anyone--tell me what practical idea can cure this cancer?

The height of all is if we by mistake talk against corruption we become matter of mockery

I am hopeless--and it reminds me of the vampire movies where a vampire bites a human and the human eventually becomes vampire.

let's see how long we remain humen in this vampire's world

It is not a very simplistic question as it appears to be. A corruption free India or for that matter most of the countries is not possible for some obvious reaons. What is corruption? The genesis of corruption is power. Power breeds corruption. As they say "absolute power corrupts abolutely" . When a perosn has the power to do or not to do, he assumes a position and it triggers corruption. I know, we can be indulgent or talk about moral posture, but it just cannot work. When demand exceeds supply, the decision maker is doing u a favour by choosing u in preference to others. He has power to do or not to do. Whether, he is a purchase manager in a multi-national company or traffic constable at a signal. Ironically the same theory applies.

On a bIgger level, India is a democratic country. Democrasy has its own virtues and vices. U have to be practical. U need money to fight an election. U need money to get a ticket to fight the election and ministerial powers have tendencies to be corrupt. U simply cannot eradicate corruption. There can be difference in degree but not in kind. It is nothing but wishful thinking to beleive that India can ever be completely corrution free.

Let us define Corrpution and then talk of Yes and No.

Corrptution is nothing but exploiting loophole or one human mind exploting the weakness of another human mind. Simple example is offering money for getting the work done which would have happen in due course or changing such priority by influence from top management.

Corruption can be minimised or even completely eliminated provided you can remove it's origin. Origin of

Corrpution is in Human mind - Greed. If Greed can be minised corrpution can be.

Just like in our daily routine we have some bad habits and good habits...that depends on us how to improve or control our bad side....in same manner corruption has also become a part of life and now it will be tough to eradicate it....the solution can be that corruption should be allowed to some extent(that should be decided by law-sounds funny but can work) but each individual should have deep thought before doing corruption and see to that it will not affect the country's economic growth...eventually when growth will be there, the life of people will improve and this can become one of the reason in future to control and minimise the corruption rate....this is my own original thought and have expressed it for the 1st time PUBLICALLY.....

There are two levels of corruption

1) Top level

2) Lower level

The top level corruption is there everywhere, no one can stop it and this happens like a business deal. Most of this kind off deals happens with Politicians at higher ranks and the country's business man for favours.

The lower level is where you and me involved. If everybody decide that they won't pay bribe, then nobody will ask for it. This scenario too is never gonna change as it's the other side makes this people greedy for money(bribe). You and me can not change this, Govt. is the only authority who can put brakes on it.

Don't think so, until people change their attitude towards this corruption, until and unless one doesn't stand against these things, corruption will not stop and people have made it as a habit for them to take bribery, people should stop giving bribes to get their work done at the government and other places, until then one cant stop corruption that is seen in the country.
