Hello, everyone. Let me tell you first what is a scam. This is nothing but corruption in a higher degree. This involves higher govt officials and the money favoured is huge. We can name a few like Sarada scam in West Bengal. Where govt of West Bengal ministers helped the Sarada chit fund owners to accumulate money from poor people against unrealistic promises to make double or triple the amount deposited and at the end, the company officials went aloof with public money. Next vyapam scam in MP. Where in state govt jobs exams were given by fake entities to pass the exam. Next 2g scam where govt officials distributed 2g spectrum at lower than the market price to tele providers against bribe. So all these scams happened out of greed and disrespect towards law and order of the country. The govt should introduce stringent regulatory rules to monitor each and every sector to ensure public trust and hasten the judicial process to bring the culprits to book cause in India corrupt people are less afraid of being caught in the trial due to lax in the judiciary system. Sebi income tax department election commission rbi should devise role models to regularly monitor the working of suspected organisations.

The persons at the higher authority must work with dedication and sincerity meanwhile the anti-corruption bureau must solve the case as soon as possible and submit its report to the judiciary. If the supreme court or high court finds anyone guilty then judgement must be given as soon as possible instead of taking more years.

In my view, the scam is a big issue now in all public related sectors, why because there is no proper head of the sectors like education, tax related, excise, financial, railways, information etc, unlike in private sectors. So to stop and to prevent the scams, the supreme court must involve and they only have to appoint a comitee which consists of sincere retired army and police officers and it must laid the rules to these people, to submit the records annually related to their fields, and it should be free from politics and the information relevant to the fields must also know n to the common people, like how much it getting on each field and how much they are spending for the growth of the particular field.

Hello, Everyone.

The scam can be done by any person starting from Prime Minister to a Clerk. A human's greed is unpredictable by any Exam or Machine in the World. Today, India is deeply submerged by the past and current scams. It is very clear to me that wherever Human intervention is present in the financial system, there lie certain chances for a scam. But the reality is that we can't Replace Every finance person by a Robot!

So Transparency and Digitalization are the key routes for minimizing the scams. If all the Tendering process, Balance Sheets, Expenditure Records, money Allotment are made Transparent via the Internet then Any Human on the earth will have no room to make a Scam.

Thank You.

What better will a regulatory body will do if they are also under the influence of people who are involved in scam?

Unless we develop some independent bodies that can work without any pressure over them and investigate, raid, without any warrant then maybe we can be in assertion with the formation of regulatory bodies to bring and end which brings defamation to the nation at international platform.

For every good thing, we cannot look at Government. Law cannot change one's mindset, greed, lust of power etc. It is we who have to rethink and redefine the system of working honestly. Why scams happen?

It is only when we think and take it granted that we should do enough for our children and coming generations so that they don't require to work hard. In other words, don't you feel that we are trying to make them easy going, means neither to read, nor to compete and no use to society.

Hi friends, according to me, scams can be controlled by the regulatory bodies only if they are regulated properly, as these bodies are under the influence of many political leaders who use make these bodies to work according to their needs. Hence if these bodies will become independent bodies so that leaders cannot control them then only these bodies will surely work towards this direction of removal or reduction of scam that is affecting our nation badly.

Scam will be happen single or group of people can involve. Purpose scam mainly that to benefit (money, land, gold. etc..). Reasons for scams happen through out world because of.

1. Got less salaries in that area of working.
2. Promotions also one of the reason.
3. Comparisons is also one of the reason (Private and Public sectors).
4. Selfishness of some people.
5. Recommendation of higher Authorities.
6. Awareness of Rules and Regulations.

Overcome the above problems we can change the some of the Rules and Regularities.

1. Give good salaries to their work.
2. Give a overall idea about Rules and Regulations in every field.
3. Job allocation recommendation will be stop.
4. Give a job to eligible person in that particular field.
5. Every student involvement also to decrease the scams in through out world.
6. Interaction of people with CBI also helpful to decrease the scams.
7. To create a medium to interact all people in that area. To get new ideas also to decrease the scams.
8. Not one can do decrease the scams to take every one part to remove the scams in India.
9. Be a sincere about their job everyone.

I think above all are to helpful to decrease the Scams in India or other countries to take every one part of this to be a success.

Hi friends,

Scam is a big problem in our country. But what is the meaning of scam? 'Scam' means, when any people breaks the rule and do some thing wrong, what is harmful of our environment and society, as like deceive tax, mix up bed material of food product etc.

It is happen of country too much, why I said this word you know that if you watch in any sector then there anyone do honest work though he/she bound to do corruption. Because he/she is done this work by upper post holder.

As discussed by many the main culprit for the scams are we. Small bribes eventually take the form of huge scams. It is the value system of the people that forms the foundation of thier character. If the foundation is only weak, no matter how many regulatory bodies we form, scmas will to continue to happen. Hence it is very important that we inculcate right values in the children from early stages itself. Also education plays a major role and contributes largely in moulding a character of the person. So right values, right education will definitely help to bring about the change. And India will surely acheive its dream to become developed nation.

In order to reduce scams, very strict rules should be made against it. And patriotism is the only way to reduce scams.

Dear Friends,

Let me define "scam". Scam is irregularity - by a single or group of people - in public resource (money, land, license, food, medicine etc) for their own needs. Before moving to the cause of scam, its effects and treatment by regulatory bodies. I would like to ask to question to all my dear spectators that How many of us haven't given bribe (not even a single time) for fulfillment of our own desire ? I think everyone has. Another question. How many of us has voted without taking money from party worker or without any influence of caste and religion ? You will get countable no. Of people who has not taken note for vote or has given vote without coming under influence of caste or religion. There is the problem and there itself is the solution. Before pointing to finger towards others we should correct our self. Some or the other way we are the culprits of this curse. We as individual should take step where ever we find corruption.

Now talking about the regulatory bodies.

1. Most important point is the regulatory body should be an independent body (Like SC and EC) , otherwise it will not take much time to become a handful key for government to treat for their own benefits (like CBI).

2. There should be a quick channel (like website. One of my friend has suggested already) to launch such complaints.

3. The complaint launched should have a verification team (like a third party verification to tackle false complaints) which should submit their report within 15 days of time.

4. After its been verified, the complaints should get approved by this verification team and it should be processed further for investigation team with a time line based upon the size of issue. Please note that, this all steps are to be carried through website with mail triggering at each step to maintain transparency.

5. Investigation team should start their work immediately as soon the complaint is approved, and daily progress should be registered on site.

If govt. Really want to eradicate corruption they should come up with such kind of ideas. And being a true citizen of a country we should bring changes in our views also to step ahead. One more point, corruption can't be eradicated 100% but at least by 60 to 70 percent. Because there may be huge chance that member of regulatory body them self are corrupt. But I am very much sure that it will reduce by huge margin as compare to current situation.

Scams are the result of greed of a person. Some balance is required between professional and personal life but when a person's personal motives dominates his dedication for work this will lead to inefficiency and unwanted use of power and responsiblities.

When large amount of resources are misused it becomes a scam.

What can we do to stop these cases of corruption?Why is Civil Vigilance Commission not able to reduce such cases?

The reason is in all these scams there are high level ministers involved (take 2G Scam Telecm Minister was involved or CWG scam IOA HEAD Suresh Kalmadi and many more). CVC corruption regulatory body comes under Government control so its very difficult for them to take direct action against the minister of Govt.

So what I now required is an independent regulatory body which is independent and have power to investigate against any minister or higher government official. It should also have department which will register and consider comlaints of comman man as these small level corruptions results in big scams.

Lack of patriotism-pride in being Indian- is one of the major reasons for such rampant corruption. Selfishness is on the rise and individuals are not concerned about the society or the nation. Everybody is concerned about his or her own welfare or family's welfare. The nation suffers lack of ethics in all spheres of life. This country that is rich in noble ideas, morals and values has, now, chosen to ignore these good norms for an exalted life. Material prosperity takes precedence over moral uprightness. As long as this is the attitude of the majority in India, we have no hope to make our land corruption-free. We should practise what we preach. That is the mantra for making corruption less pervasive in India.

Regulatory bodies can just catch those people who are involved in these scams, these bodies can not change the mentality of the people who encourage these scams. The main reason behind these scams is corruption which starts from the general public. They start giving bribe to the officials to complete their work in a short period of time. And after that as a result it affects the public itself. As we can take example of 2G scam in which the companies give bribe to A.RAJA to get licences just for their benefit. So I think regulatory bodies can just support in reducing these scams but the main task is for the people to change their mind and remove corruption.

So I firmly believe that regulatory bodies comprised of efficient members (obviously dedicated to country service and honest, well minded offcourse!) as well as strict norms.

Hi friends,

From my point of view yes there must be better regulatory bodies which can take care of all big events to be corruption free. But but they must be honest enough to serve properly (i. E honestly) and for that we all not as individuals but as a whole need to impart smartness, daring attitude to raise voice against wrong and honesty towards nation in our children and in ourselves.

I am an engineering graduate and was thinking that there should be a website where people can submit there problems regarding corruption or bribe. That must be state wise so that it would become easy to handle initially. Every problem must be available as public comment also, so that each and every citizen can read that and can raise voice against corruption.

To all these, I just want to add that this is the morality and a person's value which are supposed to be enhanced and these are adopted by a person through his school and college time, so basically the root cause lies in the education system only.

On Inflation: Government is thinking as per the Economic Rules that they pick the money from the market through enhancing the rate of deposit will help to reduce the inflation. It is general theory. But It is also a point that when the rate of interest on loan is higher than the manufacturer is taking a lot of expenditure of interest on their balance sheet which reduce the profits, whereas the employee wants more enhancement on salary therefore the manufacturer have to enhance the rate of their production which will effect on inflation. An as per a common man is taking loan on higher rate to survive day to day life which is not a good policy. The main reason for upgradation of inflation is to store the food material by the politicians and the some businessman which can be stop. After stopping that Inflation rate will go down.

To Stop the Government has to create a body who will give their report about the person who is willing to Fight the any Election. In this report they have to clear that the Person has a total Assets, and details of any offence against him/her, their character Certificate. After this every politician has to give their annual Assets report to the Government where they will disclose the total assets. After this if any politician found corrupted they have to catch by local police and take whole assets in the government custody.
