Ofcourse, privatisation results in less corruption. As far I observed most of the government employees offer curroption because of no strict rules and regulations, where as private sector follows strict rules and regulations.
But, in private sectors there will not be any job security as public sector. And everyone wanna get employment in public sector.
|Sri Harsha said: (Jul 1, 2016)|
|We are missing the point here, The private sector is different from the govt sector because of the rules implemented in the firm. For suppose in govt sector we have the job guarantee there is not much pressure to fulfill objectives but in private every person irrespective of their cadre assigned with objectives, so they work to fulfill them. So if we implement some changes in rules the govt sector can also see corruption less environment as losing the business for the private not healthy solution for this.|
|Chedilal said: (Jun 29, 2016)|
|It is practically a very feasible solution of reducing corruption to the lower level. Let's not talk about privatization, PPP or other things such as motives of the private organization, it is a different topic to debate. We are here to discuss the impact of privatization on corruption and I feel most of the people are deviating from the topic.
According to me, privatization will drastically reduce the corruption in India. We all are aware of the situation in government offices like PWD, Education department, Police Stations, Hospitals, RTO etc. The situation is so worse that nothing can be done in formal ways and according to the procedures, we have to bribe agents, officers etc. No work can be done without bribing, your file cannot move to even one level higher if you won't pay bribes. The situation is pathetic.
Every law, rule, regulations, the machinery of government have failed to remove corruption because it is itself corrupt partially. Let's analyze the situation of private firms, for example, ICICI Bank, you go there with a problem, it will be dealt within a minute, on the other hand, see the working of nationalized banks.
The USA and other developed economies have used the privatization as a tool to eradicate corruption and optimize their work culture, we are very much aware of this. These economies are successful in placing a well settled and corruption free system while keeping their citizens on priority.
Hence it is proved that Privatization will lead to less corruption.
|Ratan Singhj said: (Apr 18, 2016)|
|Corruption is not depending on private and government sector, this is depending on invisible attitude.|
|Vivek Kumar said: (Feb 23, 2016)|
|According to me privatization will lead to less corruption. This is not important if we want to really eradicate corruption from root we have to come forward to fight this. No privatizations no governmentalization can do this.|
|Mansi said: (Feb 20, 2016)|
Talking on the topic" privatisation leads to less corruption" I think in case of corruption there is nothing like private or a public thing. The best way to get out of this is "digitization" i.e. making everything online and hence reducing the human interference because I feel this is the only way which can provide us with 100% transparency and hence a reduction in corruption.
Taking a recent example of filing an FIR. I think it has really helped a lot in reducing the corruption at least at this level.
What else can be done is by making strict laws and creating a non governmental organisation which would not only keep a check on the laws but will also make sure that the implementation is being done properly.
|Aditi said: (Feb 19, 2016)|
|Privatization will help in removing corruption but at the same time it is not suited for every sector. Government owned sectors work for the welfare of people and also bring revenue for the government to function properly.
I think if government imposes strict rules and give punishment to the one accused for corruption the instances of corruption will reduce. Here is an example, Delhi chief minister Mr. Kejriwal encouraged people to post videos or voice recordings when police took bribes from them so that they can stop these malpractice.
Many policemen were accused and punished as a result they are now afraid and do there work properly. So, I believe if people and government work together we can make India corruption free.
|Vibhore said: (Feb 10, 2016)|
I agree with the points and thoughts mentioned above. But in my point of view I feel that PPP is the best way to eliminate corruption from our country. When both sectors will work together it will be effective and efficient way to do work.
|Rajendra said: (Jan 31, 2016)|
|My opinion will be making privatization to reduce corruption is like 'removing hand for finger infection rather than treatment'. Govt leaders should take this opportunity and should try to clean corruption rather than handing over their duty to private firms.|
|Rajendra said: (Jan 30, 2016)|
|Making Privatization is good concept as it will provide better facility and services for people. But it will not work in every field because there is a vast difference between government and private firm. Private firms is for making a profit of own organization and compete with other organization for their growth. So privatization should be restricted to some level otherwise, it will introduce the slavery system again as we were in past during British rule.|
|Santosh Rai said: (Nov 24, 2015)|
|Hello everyone, corruption is no where related to government sector or private sector, its the mind set of the people, even the private firms have to pay commission to get their work done faster so there is no surety that privatizing the sector will reduce corruption. I support that their should be privatization (with partial monitoring from government) in sectors which needs upliftment such as infrastructure, power, agriculture, health care etc so that we economically become strong.
Privatizing these sectors will not only boosts and bring revenue but will also generate employment and increase competition, more company will join there by competing for price, quality and quantity to meet the demands of the people as result customer will get good quality of infrastructure, better facility and at cheaper price.
|Sumit said: (Jun 10, 2015)|
|Yes, privatization is known for less corruption and productive corporate area. Because there is no job security for the person you have to always hold your positiveness about the work you also be maintain good public interaction.
But however any government sector should not be privatized. It will be better if they create some rule like private sector, like job insecurity. Job insecurity is very much require for industrial growth.
|Ajay Hooda said: (Jun 8, 2015)|
|By privatization we may have a control on expenses but by this only the services to a common man will get in high rates. Take example of airport express metro line, when it is under control of reliance we have to pay 100 for our journey. But now when it is governed by government. Its rates are deducted to almost 40 percent.|
|Mayur said: (May 25, 2015)|
|Well, I thing making government sector private will make a change. But, it is only in our mind wherever you work it's on you how do you see it and by the way there are many scams in private sector also.
Whenever we fail in the exam we don't change the college we give the paper again and again till we pass and we pass only when we impose some restrictions on us. So something same should be done with the government sector to improve them.
|Anugrah Agarwal said: (May 4, 2015)|
|I think making India a capitalist economy would lead the country to a great downfall. I strongly believe that if all the sectors are privatized it would lead to lesser income for the government and hence in order to meet with the expenditure they would increase the tax and duties. And as we all know that Indians hate to pay their taxes they would rather start BRIBING the government officials more and thus this would lead to more corruption in INDIA.|
|Ritesh Kumar Panda said: (Apr 30, 2015)|
|Good morning gentleman.
In the country like India, each and everybody wants a government service which leads to increase in the competition for PUS, and less peoples get attracted towards the private companies.
But the questions arises that what we are getting by entering into the services offered by our government and what we pay to the nation its only just one word CORRUPTION and CORRUPTION.
So we came across a new word known as privatization in which each and every work is under the supervision of private servant, who doesn't care for any others, therefore these type of establishment is useful by:
1. The first and foremost these establishment reduces the corruption rates which now becomes a social evil.
2. Reducing the overloads from the govt.
3. Helps the govt to think upon the huge alternatives available.
4. Improves the economy of the country.
5. If used in effective way it can ensure the success of the country.
|Sachin said: (Mar 13, 2015)|
I think privatization will lead to lesser corruption, though it will not abolish it completely. If you look at the government organizations, everyone is ready to work once you agree to pay bribe, otherwise your work will be kept pending asking for completion of formalities.
But in private organizations, producing better results is always a aim, so the higher level keeps a check whether you are doing your work properly or not. The same is not there in government sector.
|Sangeeta Verma said: (Feb 25, 2015)|
Well I do agree with some of my friends who have mentioned that privatization has no role in removing corruption. These are two different aspects in a way that privatization cannot make any efforts in removing corruption that has to come within ourselves and major part has to be played by the government in removing this. So according to me, I wouldn't agree to this.
|Nikhil said: (Jan 9, 2015)|
|Hey I totally agree with this. What exactly should be done is we have to work together and as said above that we all should change our mentality and set our mind to work honestly if we want a corruption free India along with the government.|
|Shankey Kumar said: (Aug 3, 2014)|
|Hello friends, according to my point of view, no doubt privatization lead to less corruption but with the same there is also need to change the thinking of the peoples. If maximum sector in India becomes private but the mentality of the people remain same, then what's the fun of privatization?
I think there are two types of effort are require to remove the corruption in India. First one is from government side and second one from our side. First I would like to discuss the effort of government side. The government should make strict rule for every department and take action immediately to give the punishment to accused person. I think if government take action against only one percent of the accuse person, then the other 99% person automatically do their duty honestly.
Second effort is require from the ourside. Now today, there is a need to change the wrong mentality of the people. If we do our duty honestly, then a large amount of corruption is ended. If we take oath to do any work without taking anything, then how corruption is not ended?
So At last I want to say that, if we want to end the corruption totally, then with the government, there is also need to change the mentality of our mind and then only corruption is totally ended.
|Tappu said: (Jun 2, 2014)|
|Well I believe privatization cannot eliminate corruption. Well corruption born from human mentality. Until unless we decide neither do corruption nor to allow someone to do corruption, this disease cannot be eliminated. We have to repair ourselves first.
Well if we talk about private companies, then I want to claim Jindal Steel which is a private company and was involved in many scams like coal scam. Similarly all time we find news like companies escaping profit share of share holders by showing no profit. Here someone is getting profit which is unfair, so this is corruption.
|Kavya Yl said: (Apr 24, 2014)|
|Well, guys our country was privatised in 1991. In one way, we can say that privatisation is a boon for our country. The companies that are under govt organisation are least bothered on the quality and quantity of the produce. Of Course, They are accountable to the Government but there is a chance of over invoicing and make more hidden profits which finally lead to the contagious disease corruption.
But in the case of privatisation, the private holders are much aware of their business and the burden of the loss or profit is wholly consumed by self. There are less chances for corruption under privatisation.
|Satish Garnayak said: (Mar 21, 2014)|
|As my friends told about the topic they are right on their own point of view, but my opinion is that by doing privatization it will never clean the corruption completely, it only possible when people are work together, and we people well not corrupt ourself, then obviously the corruption can be reduced, because corruption starts from us, if we are in the right way then corruption will be far away from us. Thank you.|
|Moni said: (Mar 20, 2014)|
Our discussion topic is "privatization will lead to less corruption" I agreed with this statement but my question is that only private sector reduce corruption easily? many people says YES or many people says NO, that's our mindset if we all people decide to reduce corruption in our country to work with together not a private sector or a government sector. Definitely we reduce corruption.
If we work together developed the nation and automatically problem will solve.
|Vedanand Singh said: (Mar 8, 2014)|
I am supporting you all what everybody has said.
But as we know that there are two aspects of life. One is positive or negative.
If privatization goes into positive way, it would give positive effect, corruption may be reduced. If it goes into negative way, it would give negative impact, thus corruption may be reduced.
But ultimately it depends on the mind of the people, how we take it.
|Joel Joy said: (Feb 16, 2014)|
|Privatization is not gonna make any changes in any of our system. If we are taking the case of our engineering colleges, most of them are private institutions. Even Though they used to collect a large amount from each student as donation. This is an another face of corruption. But instead of that we must follow top tax system. It will be better than anything.|
|Vijay said: (Feb 14, 2014)|
|No privatization will only control the corruption to some extent at lower level but at higher level corruption can't be controlled by privatization. As we see in order to make any sector private large amounts of bribes are given by interested firms/companies to the govt so don't think that privatization can control corruption.|
|Anup Sharma said: (Feb 13, 2014)|
|Privatization and corruption both are totally different thing. Those people who are corrupt it doesn't matter whether they are in public sector or government sector they will remain corrupt. The only benefit of privatization is that quality of output of different organization will improve. As you can take the example of Indian railway if it will be privatized then you will able to see the standard of the Indian railway.|
|Gunjan said: (Feb 7, 2014)|
|According to me privatization will eradicate corruption because it will reduce working area of an organisation.
People will focus on their development but indirectly it will make the country developed by increasing the per capital income.
Corruption will reduce compare to government sector because employee can go to the organisation CEO for their problem directly and its not a one year process.
Though privatisation includes more investments but it ensures quality.
|Smit Kr. Jha said: (Feb 2, 2014)|
|From my point of view, it would be wrong to say that privatization would lead to wipe off of corruption as it is not an activity which is limited few individuals working in public sectors. As in recent many private firms are found alleged in corruption. To be with corruption or act against it is up to an individual, whether he is from public or private sector.
As corruption can happen anywhere. By cleansing or rather sanitizing I should say working environment of public sector, would be an long term solution. Leadership should be strong and committed enough for welfare organisation. Of these things are OK. Corruption wouldn't exist for long. Privatization is a short term solution, would act like painkiller which has its side effects too, such as increased rates etc.
|Saumitra said: (Jan 29, 2014)|
According to me privatization will lead to good quality & management but to say that privatization will decrease corruption is not justifiable. Because in privatization everyone wants to earn more and more and he would like to do anything for earning money even corruption will also not be a big deal.
So as I think about privatization, the first point comes in my mind is that- No Emotions No mercy, only earning.
So friends, I will never support Privatization at any situation.
|Ritu Raj said: (Jan 23, 2014)|
In my view it is not that privatisation will lead to less corruption as in the recent memory we have heard Satyam case of private sector and also 2G scam, Coalgate etc where both private and public sector involved. So to eradicate corruption can't be achieved immediately by doing privatisation instead we should have some strict law like Janlokpal bill to deal with the corrupted without any differentiation between government or private organisation.
|Ashish Katariya said: (Jan 15, 2014)|
|As many of the above have mentioned, even I feel that Privatization is not the solution for reducing corruption.
In simple words, now the money need not be distributed to a huge chain, right from peon / watchman to the minister, Now it can directly be distributed between few people only.
But corruption, or in other words wrong or incorrect practices won't stop.
Privatization also, companies will invest money, and then once it comes to earning, then it like a downpour for them, (one time investment).
When politicians were involved, atleast the feared a bit, for the had next elections to play for, and they needed support. If privatization comes in, those who takeover, not all will be noble people.
Imagine, now we have atleast few scams, if Privatization is done we can have many RAJU'S and RADIAS and KALMADIS.
SO I feel, instead of complete privatization, if it is done by both political, private sector, and societies together, it would be better.
|Sneh Arora said: (Dec 27, 2013)|
|Hello friends, this is sneh I also want to add one more point. As per my point of view problem is not in private sector or public sector. The basic problem is the mentality of the people. They just want to fullfill their own dreams, society welfare is not important for them. Neither we can say privatisation is not responsible for corruption because satyam scam is big example for this. Nor we can say public sector is not responsible because 2G scam is there in which public sector is involved. So as per me people mind set is responsible for corruption.|
|Karan said: (Dec 27, 2013)|
|What I feel is privatization means every things will be in the hands of private organization. Politicians can not interfere in it directly so definitely corruption will be very less and one more thing that we can expect quality from private organization.|
|Sheshnath Kumar said: (Dec 25, 2013)|
|I think privatisation will not lead to less corruption in any way, it only did is change the mind set of people of thinking about self only, privatisation is some how cause of corruption directly or indirectly, it made people to think that only my growth is needed, no need to worry about others welfare. Then how we can get rid out of this so called corruption?
People should have think about others too, and government should take stern action to eradicate this problem like pass the janlokpal bill, strict rules in work areas, stationary action against people who violet the rule, and most important co-operate each other. Then no need of pvt. Anywhere. By doing these we can be safe and live freely in a uncorrupted and beautiful world.
|Vivek said: (Dec 24, 2013)|
|According to myself it is apt because in privatization people are known for their work rather than their positions. Higher authorities always govern their work and 100% aim remains the upgradation in quality rather than quantity. It will increase competition and monopoly like words would lost their existence which indirectly has given birth to corruption. There may be chances of little bit corruption here also but the amount of white works will always dominate the black ones.|
|Dipika Dubey said: (Dec 17, 2013)|
|There is no guarantee that privatization leads to less corruption, because there are some companies in the news which did scam.
The cost of products increases by privatization.
If we take private petrol bunks, even though they keep petrol bunks clean, they charge high than the bunks under government control.
Our rights of demanding decreases by privatization.
|Kishore said: (Dec 15, 2013)|
|Mainly Corruption takes place between the person who want's the work to be accomplished easily and the person who will look for short cut ways to earn money.
These type of people cannot be found on private corporations, because these companies will hire the persons who work hard and these companies provide good benefits to these type of people with good salaries and promotions. So these employees will not look for the alternatives to earn money.
But if you consider govt employees. The salaries provided to them will be fixed and so these people will look for alternatives to earn money and this leads to corruption.
|Sunita said: (Dec 5, 2013)|
The root cause of corruption is human selfishness and their laziness.
They wants, their desires have increased but don't want to give their best. We need to work on cause of corruption. Rather than which sector should be in existence.
Zero tolerance for corruption.
Stringent laws and regulations should be there for corrupted people.
Improvement in education system that is emphasis on moral values should be more. Meditation in morning assembly can work well. Students can feel mental peace and come to know more about themselves.
Instead of changing the system, there is immense need to change the mindset of Indians.
We should look for improvements in existing system rather than blaming existing system and replacing with another one.
|Sakthi Kannan said: (Nov 23, 2013)|
|Everyone said their point of view about the about private and public sector. I agree with their all of them According to me, in private Sector sometime management problems will be arising it will also creates the problem to the work people by this they may not have the chances concentrate on their works by this growing is less in the private sector.
In public sector control can undertakes by the government it does not have the management directly towards and depends government control in economy if the public sector goes up everything it will be growing those are working under public sector they will get the benefit from public sector as well as the for economic growth.
|Ajeet said: (Nov 22, 2013)|
|Privatization is not good for India, because in the private education system only few people will get benefit, specially only the upper income people only will be benefited in private education system. Lower income people will not benefit even though they have talent. Because they impose fees for every body in a huge level. And in the private sector jobs also there some problems. In private sector tremendous work pressure will be there. So many conditions will be their. What I want to say that the education system and providing jobs also should be taken by the Government. Then only all categories of people will be benefited.|
|Priya said: (Nov 8, 2013)|
|Yes I do agree with this statement. The Private sector can make less corruption than the public sector. Moreover they want flawless system in their process. Until the people have that fear for punishment, there will be a less corruption. Privatization surely make the change in the corruption system.
|Vandana Uniyal said: (Oct 30, 2013)|
|Not at all. People have this deep notion in their minds especially Indians that government organizations don't work, and they just earn and relax. Such wrong belief system is so deep rooted in the minds of Indians and when it comes to the preference of either government or private job, then 90% of Indians would opt a government job. When you want to fill your tummy by a government job, then why you cannot work hard ?
Thus, I am against the statement, I think its just the mentality of Indians, else ask a government employee, he works hard to uplift his organization.
|Ankur said: (Oct 30, 2013)|
|Stay away from Privatization. Think of it in this way, if a private company is interested in taking over a Service then it thinks that it can make a profit on this Service. These profits will go to the Shareholders who might be outside the country. Wouldn't it be better if the profits remained with the govt i.e. the Nation. We have to better manage these public Sector services and run them like a private company. The only winner from Privatization is the private company and the only loser is the Nation.|
|Amit Toor said: (Oct 26, 2013)|
|Yes there is less corruption in Private Sectors because they have an efficient system. People working in private sectors have a fear of loosing their jobs. To stop corruption we need to have a transparent system that these private sectors have, so have less corruption. People working in both sectors are human and can go corrupt.|
|Nitya said: (Oct 25, 2013)|
|I think privatization helps in development of country because if somebody want to establish own business then he establish his business and give chance to another people to work with him. So unemployment is reduce by the privatization.
If business get profit the business men give income tax, sales tax to the government by these taxes country moves on the side of development. Private sector industries works on the standards and policies. Because the owner of private sector industries want to grow their business to earn more profit and provide best facilities rather than the public sector. Government hospitals not give the best facilities to the patience but private hospitals give the best facilities.
|Bhupesh Sahu said: (Oct 22, 2013)|
In my opinion, privatization cannot get help in rid away of corruption, because of lack of motivation in public sector people do not work as they are intended to do. For example, incentives are not given on the basis of performance, their honesty. Further, they get job security, they know that if he/she won't work at all then also then also they will get paid.
So government should change their policy.
|Karthik said: (Oct 10, 2013)|
Privatization will less corruption is good thinking, because corruption not stopped. The individuals effort not changed our country, but reduce the corruption. Each citizen Mentality changed people and there living, after less this corruption.
|Vidya said: (Oct 9, 2013)|
|First of all I would like to say something corruption are grow up to day to day. It's causes is all human being is to be grow up and become a rich person so it is a indivisible initiate to the destroy corruption. It problem of a very large scale to not easily finish so privatization is only solution to change the less time and people, and also target to corruption, it is a not a solution of this problem so change the system and change the people.|
|Malvika Sharma said: (Sep 28, 2013)|
|Hi, friends in my point of view corruption can not be stopped by individual effort but definitely we can reduce its rate. Corruption in any country is created by the people living there. If people start thinking about their country before their personal profit, and if they starts caring for the other people then we only we can get rid of corruption.
It also depends on the mentality of people. Here I want to give an example when an accident occur then everyone feels so bad but nobody bother to help that person. So if you don't have feelings about the mankind then how can you reduce corruption rate and it does not matter whether the system is private or government.
|Nishanth Reddy said: (Sep 27, 2013)|
Our topic is privatization will lead to less corruption.
I feel corruption depends mostly on need for money and inefficient to work,
Private sector is accountable and insecurity so requirements for corruption is less but public sector is less accountable and security is more because of this corruption in public sector inflates day by day,
Coming to inefficiency to work there is no scope for this in private sector because of high observing.
So it is better in some ways to privatize to reduce corruption.
|Adi said: (Sep 27, 2013)|
|I'm agree with the statement that privatisation lead to less corruption but we have to think from a broader perspective that corruption is not done because in India most of the sectors were public but mentality the Indians does have like tolerance for corruption, We should not talk or divert from the topic like privatisation lead to less corruption rather we have to ask ourselves and our politician what can be done to eradicate corruption from our society following steps can be taken to eradicate like.
1. Zero tolerance for corrupt people.
2. Strict rules and regulation.
3. Rules and regulation should be simplified so that there should be no confusion about its implementation. Like if we go for driving license the procedure for the same is so complicated and cumbersome that even educated people don't want to go through this procedure. Why a such complicated procedure for such a small thing.
4. Why govt is ruling our country because to do the development of country if govt cannot do and giving the development work to private companies than what is the role of the govt.
4. Incentives of politician and govt employees should be tied with the quality and speed of work. And more accountability is need to be set.
5. Education system should need to be improve.
Privatisation has its own benefits and disadvantages but People do corruption because we allow them to do.
|J V Sandeep said: (Sep 22, 2013)|
|Hello good afternoon my dear friends,
From the topic stated above 'does privatization lead to less corruption?'. I think definitely no. Because privatization only improves the efficiency when compared to that of public sector but cannot completely lead to abolish corruption in India.
Corruption came in India due to mindset in people, so it needs to be changed to overcome this issue. Even after becoming privatized sector, the corruption starts there also. So, we need to eliminate people's mindset and must encourage them not to give or take corruption and should make them aware about the effects of corruption.
Privatization does only make our works efficient and faster but not actually eliminate our global corruption. Therefore, to reduce it we must implement stringent laws over the victims who encourages it and make people aware over certain disadvantages which are caused by the corruption.
Thus, I finally conclude that we need not privatize our public sector to eliminate corruption indeed we can change certain rules and regulate laws by implementing stringent rules and aware the people over this issue to make our India a corruption free country.
|Raja said: (Sep 20, 2013)|
|Good afternoon dears.
Now we taking about privates leads to less corruption. Ya that is necessary thing.
Because corruptions are increased in day to day. Government inspect in every thing is impossible so private is we need. Drawback of this one is prices increase is not unavoidable thing like as a petrol prices. Corruption is not only buying and giving is the one way of encouraging the corruption. So every one promise to ours self not buying and giving the corruption.
Whoever involved in corruption that persons punished in severe in both government or private sector and dismissed their posts.
|Sanjay Kumar said: (Sep 8, 2013)|
|Privatization of any sector has some good & bad effect on our society. It cause to out of control of government & privet companies are free to increase the rate of goods services. So privatization with control of government is good for our society.|
|Suraj Sd said: (Sep 6, 2013)|
|Ya here we got an interesting topic about privatization, ya in my point of view of privatization we lead to less corruption when compared to govt sector as people who are inbound with govt organization will not take care of the profit or loss.
Where as in public sector profit and loss will play an important role so one will take good care of what is going on the company and hence we can avoid corruption.
On privatization we will get healthy competitions on producing reasonable products.
And people get good services unlike in public sector.
Finally privatization is a success way to reduce corruption in India.
|Nauhad said: (Sep 5, 2013)|
|Main reason why public sector is corrupted because of less accountability and job security.
When comes to private sector, private sector employees are highly accountable. Because of the accountability and job insecurity private sector employee accomplished their task before time when public sector employee charge bribery for normal duty.
When we hear the word corruption, first things comes in our mind is Delay in road construction, getting license, delay in any types of project etc. In private sector everyone performance is monitored, if electricity, road construction project is given to the private sector there is no doubt that project will be completed with in a short span of time. In private sector if an employee is not much efficient, than he/she is fired from the company and so there is no issue of asking bribery for duty.
Though public sector attract the most talented pool of the country but when comes to utilization of resources we find that private sector is much ahead, FCI is an proper example, When comes to service provider imagine the service of BSNL and Airtel, people has changed name of BSNL to Bhai sahab Nahi lagega. After getting lots of monetary non monetary support from the government public sector fail to work efficiently and also to fail to generate profit in many cases.
But there is a dark side of private sector, we all know the Sattyam case, 2G scam where many private sector company was involved so with respect to the topic I will say that Privatization will lead to less corruption.
|Areesha said: (Aug 24, 2013)|
|Hello everybody. Privatization is something that will result in coming out of the control of govt and somehow it may soar the related prices of the corresponding sector. As long as the control is under govt, there is possibility to plummet this but privatization may not give the public to opportunity to curb this.
So I believe that this being the negative trait of privatization may lead to corruption but like everything privatization has also got its pros and cons. The advantage could be that a person employed in private sector could work selflessly and hence contribute towards national development.
A govt employe after getting abundant facilities becomes indolent which hinders development and ultimately rises to corruption. So the bottom line is that few sectors could be privatized and looked after carefully.
|Kavitha said: (Aug 18, 2013)|
In my Opinion privatization is good idea because who are corrupted they are not satisfied with their salaries. In private sectors the Rules and Regulations are strict and in private sectors they will give good work to employee and salary, I am not telling in government sectors not giving. My personal opinion is that in government sectors the employees are lazy because I saw Practically when I am doing the internship in government organization. If privatization is more our country will developed in less time not sure that privatization will lead corruption free, I am sure that less corruption will be there.
Thank you for patronage.

|Hello. According to me privatization and corruption are to different aspects since in today's world every common man gives bribes so as to do there work (illegal) instantly. The government should be blamed since the people who do this job do not do their work with sincerity. FOR example when a common man goes to make his/her driving licence they face huge difficulties. There must be people who give bribes and finally make their license. According to me there should privatization in some public undertakings so that there is a smooth functioning of activities. To stop corruption one should CHANGE HIS/HER mind in order to prosper.|

|In my opinion, corruption has no relation with privatisation but privatisation gives the way to recover from corruption. One of my friends said that in privatisation there is a rule which acts on every people on the other hand there is no rule in public sector.
Rules don't make by god. Rules are made by common people. So people have to understand their feeling. Sectors doesn't matter corruption, people have to identify themselves then they can change mind of other people.
|Payel Mazumder said: (Aug 14, 2013)|
|I think privatisation, as a term, has nothing to do with corruption. Corruption lies within the minds of the people. Privatising a sector, in no way, will lead to less corruption as it is something which people voluntarily accept and follow with selfish motives.
It can only be at least minimised if people start thinking about their country before themselves, keeping in view their moral ethics. This can be done by first educating people and making them more aware.
They should value their country's assets rather than exploiting them. So people, in general, have to be more conscious about their duties towards one's country, so as to minimise corruption.
|Rohit said: (Aug 6, 2013)|
|In my opinion I would say that first India should be a educated country then only our country can be free from corruption. People working in privatization or in government organisation should be well educated and should have a good mentality. If the person is educated he will not lead to do any crimes or any corruption. And then India can be well developed country.|
|Mujffar Ali said: (Aug 4, 2013)|
|In my opinion privatization is not solution to reduce corruption because corruption is due to mentality of the person and these are present in both private or government sector. If the person will have the mentality to involve in corruption then privatization will not help to reduce the corruption. If we really want to reduce the corruption we have to change the mentality of person.|

Privatization will lead to Less Corruption, In today's world there is nexus between private companies and corruption, Corruption comes from moral, social and economic factors and has nothing to do with Private companies. Every transaction of property has black money involved which has increased the prices to so much that common man cannot get decent housing.
However we have seen that privatization can help reduce corruption in some of the industries like Power sector, there is a cost associated with it as companies are not working for social causes and profitability is there objective.
Corruption cannot be eradicated completely by privatisation as we have seen corruption in allotting the telecom licenses in 2G and coal fields to private companies.
Corruption can be reduced by socio economic development and reducing the direct interactions of government to people. Automating most of the transactions so there is minimal chances of exceptions. Stern punishment for the people caught and time bound court cases to be completed.
I am optimistic that India will move away from corruption as people are fed up and some stern actions will come over the course of next couple of decades.
|Vivek Soni said: (Jul 27, 2013)|
|Privatization can't eradicate corruption from the society but as far as I think corruption can be reduced to a very great extent by empowering the private institutions to take up the lift in many government organization. There can be few exceptions were private institutions like SATYAM Comp. Have put India down.
People are appointed in private sectors after a very hard work and talent and seldom they'll try to lose their job by involving themselves into corruption. We have seen people who are not even 10th passed have topped to get the seats in parliament and legislatures. But private sectors are talent, job skill and work oriented, means their employees are well educated and decent enough to know the economic and other challenges our country have been facing in this era. So they won't involve themselves such kind of business if they have a little respect or moral for the society they are living in.
|Ganga said: (Jul 16, 2013)|
|Privatization is managerial approach that has attracted the many people like academics, politicians government employees. Privatization can only improve the quality of service. I strongly believe that corruption is nothing to do privatization.|
|Saurav Prasad said: (Jul 5, 2013)|
|I strongly believe that corruption is nothing to do with privatization.
Corruption is not all about taking money and doing things illegally.
Rather it is doing things against policy.
Privatization can only improve quality of service and hence leading to gain of customers confidence.
Pressurizing employees to stay late, working in shifts, help team, targets,
Buttering, taking ahead wrong people ahead, appraisals, etc are kind of private corruption in an organization.
Say if you privatize the irctc.com, it will definitely gonna help indians in many ways but on the other hand it will add more bugs to fare.
People can bear the best services at the cost of money. Recruitment process, reward process, support functionality will have a different measure.
Where private organizations are effective.
Corruption in privatization are much painful than any other forms that government official do.
The suggestion is to give regular trainings, feedback system and the system transparency, internal exams, promotional exams, to government officials.
|Aarav said: (Jun 26, 2013)|
|Privatization is not the solution of corruption, corruption is problem of mentality of human. I believe that privatization will lead India to Developed country, because in private sector's employees do effective job and done the task on the time.
So I don't believe that privatization leads the country to less corruption, corruption will still there but in the other form. In the present money goes to the hand of government employee and after privatization it will go to the organization and the government employees on the higher post that's only the difference that will appear.
If we want to remove corruption from our country, we have to change our mentality. We have to do our jobs sincerely.
|Kartikeya Sharma said: (Jun 21, 2013)|
|Privatization is no promise to decrease corruption in a developing country like ours. But what it does promise is convenience to the modern middle class Indian who is working his heart out day and night to provide his family with a good standard of living and a decent education at an added cost, no less. The robust ethical practices adopted by private companies to ensure proper growth makes sure of timely completion of any project (in which a government agency might take too much time due to negligence etc.).
Implementation of models like the Public-Private partnership (PPP) is a great step towards the privatization in important and time sensitive sectors like infrastructure.
As far as corruption is concerned, we can never rule out the possibility of its existence in tenders allocation and other initial stages but private participation would definitely reduce its effects in the overall development of the projects.
|Prakash Kumar Mishra said: (Jun 18, 2013)|
|Hi friends, Privatization is not the solution for acquiring good services. Satyam is an example. System is not guilty people who run that system is guilty. So we don't more concentrate towards privatization. We should try to change the bad mentality of human. Peoples think doing government job is more secure than private job because we can do job according to ourself. None will force to do work. For overcoming to that government employee mentality in every organization should have a CCTV camera installed. So that Seniors always keep their eyes on them. And government should give good incentive for doing more work aspected too. We should try to change our system passing through lokpal bill and makes control over high profile person (like ministers).|
|Mahurusha said: (Jun 6, 2013)|
|Privatization will lead to less corruption because every work done on the finishing date. But government sectors not done they work, he aim only how did earn money, so he do not concentration in him work, private sectors have how did earn money, but they finished all work. So privatization only less corruption.|
|Naresh Gaganaboina said: (May 26, 2013)|
I believe privatization cannot be compared with corruption. Privatization will only lead to price hike of commodities in return rise in inflation. There are several government offices now wherein CCTV has been installed to track the culprits. It totally depends on powers the person is having. Every problem has its root & cause. Instead of converting the firms into privatized sector we need to give pressure on education system to include the a topic on politics though people don't find it interesting but at least people will come to know about the system. For eg : Passport office has been part privatized but after privatization fees for making passport has also been increased. One more thing adding to above, Government have to see to it that every policies introduced are implemented properly. This can be done by making a special community for keeping a track on policies implementation.
|Rohit said: (May 20, 2013)|
|I totally disagree with this statement. Whether its private or government organisation none can help to remove corruption because people are mean and the corruption lies in their mind, they only see money and nothing else matters to them. As everyone knows the highest amount of corrupted people are politicians, they support others too in this corruption process, we can't deal with them although we want to. We cannot trust them and say so if government changes how can this be sure that the new one's are not corrupted. In my opinion if we want to reduce corruption it can't be removed in current we will have to change India's laws first. The only way to reduce or we can say remove corruption in future is that we will have to encourage moral values or education in various schools, colleges and business institutions so that we can have good human resources in future.|
|Jitu said: (May 20, 2013)|
|In my view privatization is not the solution of corruption and may never be. Equal corruption is there in private companies. In every work of company it is asked what is your approach and in government same thing named by 'jugaad'. So what is diffrence when same work is done under different name. And the cure for this will come from our education system. If we able to impart good moral values from start then situation can be changed. Because a strict law may suppress corruption but can not eliminate it.|
|G.Venu Babu. said: (May 14, 2013)|
|I think it is not at all seems to be good to compare corruption and privatization. There are as many as employees also in public sector, and they are serving the society as maximum as they can. In this context, we must appreciate that kind of employees of public sector. If you consider privatization, in this also there is possibility of corruption.
Conclusion: It not matters whether it is privatization or not, the moral ethics that people follow makes a nation free of corruption.
|Shikhar Mandola said: (May 13, 2013)|
|Helo friends, from my sight privatisation is a sure way to deal corruption. It will not only hook up all the employees to work and will also keep an eye on employees.
Privatisation will lead to systematic functioning of an organisation and there will be no delays regarding services. Moreover some private companies are also corrupted.
If we want that our country to be less corrupted than, we should change our thoughts and new generation should change corrupted minds instead of encouraging them or hiding them.
|Poonam said: (May 2, 2013)|
|Hi Friends, According to me Corruption can be stopped if we internally feel it is bad. Privatization can little bit help to remove corruption but it can be removed completely if every people of our country do their duties with honesty and hard work. We teach students in their school we should speak truth always and do hard work to achieve our goals. Don't use short way to get success.|
|Akash Patel said: (Apr 3, 2013)|
|Hello friends, according to me privatisation surely leads to less corruption because, there always remains an eye on each employee who is working in private company. He cannot make any this regularities in his work or regarding the firm in which he is working. Second thing is he is supposed to work in an atmosphere full of values so there are no chances that he can do any false statement to his firm. Third point is regarding salaries, which are probably high and so no chances of corruption.|
|Sanjay Sahu said: (Mar 28, 2013)|
|The biggest question is why do we need privatisation? Is it because of corruption, inefficiency of the government employees and the low funds.
If it is because of corruption then we need to attack the causes rather than doing the privatisation. For that matter, we can take the following steps :
1. The corruption lies in the mind of the people, so if we have to remove it, we will have to encourage moral values or education in various schools, colleges and business institutions so that we can have good human resources. To inculcate moral values in uneducated people in rural and urban areas, we will have to encourage social NGOs, RSS, vadic samaj, street plays and Media by demonstrating the cultural values of our country for every religion.
2. We will have to reward whistle blowers if they help the police or the spy agencies to nab the culprits who are doing the corruption in any form in the society.
3. We will have to use advanced technology in various government departments where the government employees should be monitored for their working hours and methods to curb corruption. Eg. We can install CCTV cameras, we can have hidden voice recorder devices in government departments.
4. We will have to pass the Jan Lok Pal Bill in the Parliament instead of the Lok Pal Bill to bring transparency in the political system.
5. Employees will have to be given special allowances or leaves who complete their given work on time with good feedback from the customers.
If Privatisation happens, this may lead to further trouble.
1. This will give all regulatory powers to the private companies which may result into soaring prices of daily commodities.
2. This does not give any guarantee for less corruption as we had Satyam and Telecom scams in past.
3. Though people give an example of Delhi Metro for quality of service however my point is it covers a total population of 3 crores and out of which most of them are well educated or well aware citizens and if we implement this in the country the quality of service may decrease.
These points somewhat proves that the privatisation should not happen in the country.
|Priyanka said: (Mar 22, 2013)|
|Both are corrupted in their own ways. Take example of the company "Maytas" - reverse of "satyam". Was not a government body. But it was created on paper by satyam (Raju). Even private organization if they want to cheat they can by creative accounting, mixing up with auditors, top management, account and finance department. Corruption is everywhere, and needs to be controlled.|
|Mounika Reddy said: (Mar 15, 2013)|
|According to my opinion privatization will not reduce the corruption because corruption is there in private sector for satyam scam. Sometimes, government and private both are responsible for corruption for example coal mining etc.|
|Gnana Prasoona Reddy said: (Mar 13, 2013)|
Corruption does not lie in private or government it lies in people's mind set. Every individual should change their attitude. Youth must put their hands together to reduce corruption in India. If privatisation occurs it may lead to more corruption.
|Jatin M. said: (Mar 7, 2013)|
According to me, privatization can lead to less corruption in India. Because in private sectors every work is done in the supervision of bosses and if bosses try to do corruption and if any one of his company member spread this news to outside then he can not increase its production which effect its economical status.
|Jayasri Nagisetty said: (Mar 6, 2013)|
In my point of view privatization may increase country's GDP but cannot less corruption. People has to change their mindset regarding eradication of corruption. For example for any company or a factory construction one needs to take government's permission. In orderly they are offering bride to officers for the approval. So increase in private companies will increase in offering bribes. Hence to eradicate or lessen the corruption peoples mind set has to change.
|Rashmi said: (Feb 24, 2013)|
|As the friend said, corruption is not depend on private or government but it totally depend on every individual, just I am adding one example we are usually catch the train for office or college. I have seen approx 70 % people are without ticket so this is also type of corruption but this is a private (individual).|
|Rajin said: (Feb 21, 2013)|
|I'm not agree this point of view because privatization and public sector important things in corruption that first we change our mind then after we do in public sector or private sector no corruption are here.
Corruption is more in public sector because the main reason no more rules and regulation are here at the other end private sector no more corruption that's leads a very strict rules and regulations that's company employers fear to his company boss. Any looting money he is this company at the time he out of this company.
|Phoenix said: (Feb 8, 2013)|
|In my point of view. Privatization will certainly abate the amount of corruption prevailing in the current public sector. Private companies focus on work oriented goal while public sector has lost its enact moral values even, with bribes needed in every nook and corner of the public sector, the consumers have to face lot of difficulties.
The moral degradation and taking things for granted has made the whole public sector lethargic. Privatization going to certainly boost the taking things for granted will certainly curb down.
|Aranjan said: (Jan 30, 2013)|
|Yes, I am somehow agree with this point that privatization can reduce corruption. As the whole charge is to the people managing in the company and it is also his responsibility to produce good results from their counterparts and their employees. So I think a person can do his work properly either if he is too honest towards his work or he has some fear of his bosses. But in government organizations there is is mentality of doing a job by getting money from the needy one. Also the bosses insists their juniors to do the job if only if he gets the money because everybody gets some percent of commission in black money. At last I want to conclude that either make some rules for public sectors to reduce corruption or give its managing permit to a private one.|
|Praveen said: (Jan 29, 2013)|
|I would like to agree with this. Currently we can see that the privatization factor is very useful in every field of life. Where people are doing their work in a proper performs because, if they will not do, they will get lost from that one. This is the rule of privatization. So it is right that everybody will have yo do their duties within certain rules where everybody can say you right in that.|
|Alok said: (Jan 9, 2013)|
|Dear All, I would like to say my words on topic "will privatization to be a favorable instrument to control the corruptions". I will say "YES" with long term objectives.
I will says not only privatization is responsible to cater corruption; some others are as:
It's very true that, corruption can not be zero in society/any segment and we every one is agree on this. It is well known that practices and researches always make problem to solve. No one institution is going to start working on the corruption issues and govt is also not ready to provide any research fund on this.
I am taking your attention on other dimensions of corruptions, as types of corruption; now you will understand what we can do to save us and our society.
1. Systemic corruption: Systemic corruption is not a special category of corrupt practice, but rather a situation in which the major institutions and processes of the country are routinely dominated and used by corrupt individuals and groups, and in which most people have no alternatives to dealing with corrupt officials.
2. Political corruption: Political corruption is any transaction between private and public sector actors through which collective goods are illegitimately converted into private-regarding payoffs. Political corruption is often used synonymous with "grand" or high level corruption, distinguished from bureaucratic or petty corruption because it involves political decision-makers. This may include with low level corruptions, corporate corruption.
3. Legal and Moral corruption: A legal interpretation of corruption provides a clearly demarcated boundary between what is a corrupt activity and what is not. If an official's act is prohibited by laws established by the government, it is corrupt; if it is not prohibited,
Please say your words; which corruption we have to cater first, please write your views.
|Manikandan said: (Jan 2, 2013)|
Just pay attention to our day-to-day life. Best ex is :roads and highways you won't experience a pleasant drive in our roads pit holes play a pivotal role, two wheeler s get a major damage, instead take our private sector highways they are just like heaven.
There is corruption everywhere it depends upon persons to decide which way you fall. There will be strict rules and good environment in private sectors.
Why do many prefer private buses rather than our govt bus, its their clean chit work.
|Josiri said: (Dec 18, 2012)|
|Hi. I agree with everyone. Lets have our own self control. We themselves have to initiate the change then only we will see a corruption free India. Whether he/she is private or public employee should work sincerely. Parents should mold their children not to do bribing because they learnt everything from their parents.|
|Dhamodharan said: (Dec 15, 2012)|
Corruption is a common factor both in government and private organisation. In Private organisation the rules are strictly followed so it is less. So in my opinion privatization will never control corruption. Take examples of Arab countries the severe punishments, strict rules and apart from all speedy judgement ensured corruption less country.
So my recommendations to control the corruption are,
(a) Severe punishments.
(b) Rules be followed strictly.
(c) Speed up the judgment.
Thank you for patronage.
|Jenish Rana (Dbim, Surat,,Gujarat) said: (Dec 9, 2012)|
|No doubt, I m agree with statement that privatization will lead less corruption but according to my opinion Privatization is one of the way of reducing corruption it will not remove to corruption from grass-root level. Because corruption is also there ex. Satyam Scam. Sometimes Government and private sector both are responsible for corruption ex. 2G scam.
Privatization leads less corruption but it will also lead monopoly in future also. And as we all know that all private sectors come in to the existence only for profit not fully for public welfare. So it may happen that they might be involved in malpractices such as to sell inferior quality goods at higher prices and black marketing and so and so forth and ultimately society has to suffer. So privatization is good up to a some level and up to a some industry. Ex. Telecommunication industry where too many players are there and and ultimately to sustain in this field all companies are trying to reducing their charges even BSNL (government sector) also.
So in order to overcome from corruption and so many serious problems occurs in privatization we should have so many other ways.
1. To determine new rules and regulations that work against the corruption in government sector as well as in private sector also and strictly follow by them. Such as "Lokpal Bill".
2. To determine standard of incentives and give good basic salary to government employee, introduce good pension schemes etc. So ultimately employee become efficient and effective automatically.
3. Self-control (Be ethical and never engage own self in corruption) if people have not self control then it is impossible to reduce corruption. Ex. While many people are going to take admission of their child in well recognized school at that time they gives bribe and even in front of child. It teach to child a lot of things about corruption. If people have corruption in blood then we can't do anything.
In order to reduce corruption we all have work together against it. Only privatization is not way to reduce corruption in country.
|Prasu said: (Dec 5, 2012)|
In my view privatization will not lead to less corruption, of course there is no corruption in private sector. But apart from private sector there is a full of corruption in public sector. Most of the people who are working in the public sector are corrupted. Government should take necessary actions in order to make country corruption free. So privatization will not lead to less corruption.
|Dhara said: (Nov 29, 2012)|
I appreciate all suggestions and ideas of my friends I want to say one thing only the concern is corruption not the privatization so if we are able to reduce the corruption any how than no need to go for privatization instead of it.
We should make our public sector like private and each rules and regulations should we implemented like private sector.
Salary should we determine on the basis of performance and if any one find any guilty than behave with him/her like private.
Instead of all these thing if we an individual neither indulge in any corruption nor accept any corruption activity than we can say that we can root out the corruption otherwise there is no way to vanish this evil. Thank you.
That corruption is bad thing and we should.
|Anand Sahu said: (Nov 21, 2012)|
Most of you may be thinking that privatization will reduce the corruption but I think corruption is equally prevailing in the private sector too. Because every individual is earning money weather he or she is in public or private sector and for that he has to pay tax to the government people working in the public sector are bound to pay the true tax according to his salary he can't hide it, but in private sector stealing of the tax is at it's peak and it directly affects the economy of the country. So encouraging public sector will improve the economy of country remarkably and will make the country a develop nation and all other problem will solve automatically once the nation becomes the developed one.
|Sumit said: (Nov 19, 2012)|
|I think that when a person is working in a private company, he is under supervision of his boss so he can't get chance to take bribe while in a government office the investigation process is to long.
More overall this I believe that it depend on individual and his morals.
Privatization will lead to Less Corruption
