Hello everyone.

I am Shweta Kumari.

I completely agree with this topic because corruption can be anyone among you who would say that my corruption has no substance or it has no impact, there is no one like that. Because corruption destroys the country from within; it puts a question mark on the economy of the country and the security of the country. Corruption is not a new problem but if you are asked what is corruption then ultimately one word that will come to your mind is "Bribery". In simple words, for what work are you getting money and you are not doing any work, then that is corruption. And nowadays everyone's motivation is only one thing, that is, they want to earn money.

India ranked 93rd among the 180 countries in the index, Because of this the government is privatizing many things like Railways, Air-India Bharat Petroleum, etc, and the government knows that its people are corrupt. What happens in the private sector is that there is a lot of competition among them due to which they provide quality and the best services due to which we get more benefit from the private sector and not from the government because there is no competition in the government sector, This is the reason why corruption becomes easy there. Let me take an easy example: private schools or government schools, why do people send most of their children to private schools? Because in government schools it is not the case that they do not have the budget to provide facilities but they do not provide those facilities. Instead of doing it they convert all the money into black money and this is called corruption. The private sector also bribe is taken like a donation system at the time of admission but even then service is provided in such a way that you do that thing happily in the government sector despite taking a bribe you have to face a lot of difficulties. You have to do this which is why you prefer the private sector more than the government sector.

In my point of view why the government should clear its own hands before pointing a finger at the private sector for corruption?

Thank you.

Now a days corruption is a very common word which is highlighted by the Media. It had a narrow space in the past but now it entered almost all sectors in India, like government, private, political, businesses based on product or service. It is continuously spreading and developing in all sectors, more over 80% works are going under corruption in India. Ultimately it has been decreasing and op-positing the economic and growth of our nation. Most of the corruption cases are involved by the politicians and encouraged by businessmen for their continent and fast growth in their business. It mainly effecting on our national economic growth and pressure to the people in their daily living aspects.

In our country most of the government personalities and politicians are earning lot of money as corrupting and that effective to the common people like price hikes of general needs.

It is not possible to complete clean on corruption but it is possible to control for a long time. We have to aware on the corruption and also our Law will be take serious action with no wasting of time and punishment be critical.

Our media also participating to control the corruption.

Hello every1,

Yes I do think that the government should think of cleaning it's own hands first.

There is really no derth of corruption in our so called "democratically elected" government. There is simply no need to be paranoid about the private sector. As the story comes out slowly we see more and more instances where the government is doing fantastically to drain the public money and put the public purse into grave perils. The CWG scam, 2G scams etc are enough to indicate at this. The recent news about the air drop of weapons in the district of purulia in west Bengal to contain the growing communist upsurge in the state and fund terrorist groups like the naxals to organise violence against the state and the hush hush involvement of the UPA led central govt in it is a clear reminder of this.

I think the government has contributed a lot to the corruption and they need not blame the private sector for it. Our ministers must learn the process of "practise what you preach".

Thank you.

Corruption has increased by leaps and bounds in the recent years. The most obvious reason behind this scenario are the lousy government officials who donot have any fear of action against them. The people on whom our country relies are the ones devouring our nation. Government officials are indulging corrupt practices in every sector be it politics, business, education or service.

As compared to public sector, private sector are much more white collared people. With the increasing competition, private sector are gradually changing their formula to exist in the market by giving more importance to customers, therby the corrupt practices are less relevant here.

Therefore in order to put a serious check on corruption and to make India a corruption free country the government has to take the incharge of unveiling the officials engaged in corruption and take corrective measures against them. Only then India can become a developed country.

Thank you.

Hello friends!

As we all know, today corruption is the root cause of decreasing growth of any sector. It includes growth of only corrupted people. When we talk about corruption, nobody is devoid of it. It may be a government sector or private sector. There is no denying the fact that all government office are corrupt. Everyone wants his/her profit. In government office nobody has to do anything with the profit or loss of the company. They have fixed jobs so they don't have fear of losing job. So here, everyone wanted to make money. Everyone cares of his/her profit.

I m not telling that private companies are pure. They are also corrupt. They have much money but they did not show to get rid of income tax.

So in my view, Government should clean its own hands before pointing finger at the private sector for corruption.

Government companies are more corrupted than private companies as we see from the example of 2G scam and CWG scam.

In India corruption started mainly after 1990. Due to liberalization & globalization employees in private sector start earning more in comparison to their counterparts in public sector in spite of less capable, so what happen that bureaucrat start thinking that person with less in knowledge as well as less in age also becoming richer day by day, they fed up with the government salary and allowances structure so they start taking bribe.

Private sector is main cause of corruption I can prove it with following mentioned argument.

. Commission based recruitment policy in private sector so employee start making fool to general public to earn more specially insurance companies.

. To earn more profit private companies make negotiation with politician and bureaucrat on sharing basis of profit so today's politician with lack of social responsibility and interaction they doesn't find anything wrong in this so they clear unambiguous projects.

In many reputed organizations in private sector, most of the purchase departments are corrupt. Managements should ensure that their purchase departments have responsible staff who do not encourage corruption. This will be in the interest of their business.

And they managements should ensure that their vendors are not involved in corrupt practices. Normally shady deals take place outside the office. Very big corporate too are facing this problem - It is a difficult task to uproot corruption in private sector- this has to be dealt at the earliest. Vendors and Purchase departments are equally responsible for corruption.

Every organization wants to focus on Products and Sales and they ignore that their own organization is accepting kick-backs at some levels. What I mean to say is at all levels weather in Purchases or in Sales - CORRUPT practices should be avoided.

In Long term, in every ones interest.

Hello friends. The topic is very interesting. In my opinion private sector can not do the corruption itself if people from the government does not help them to do so. Whatever scam we go through in the past has been carried out with the help of some big minister.

So if government tries to point out the finger on private sector then the government must first correct themselves. Moreover today private sector is contributing a lot in the development of the country. It is creating the job opportunity for the educated which otherwise would not have been possible. So it is reducing the unemployment.

It is bringing new technologies and many more. So I believe private sector is playing a crucial role in the development today. What we need to do today is to help in making a good government so that India may achieve whatever it deserves. Thank You.

Hello friends,

We all know that when we point a finger to others we point rest fingers to ourselves. The message is very and loud. The government must clean its own system before twisting the arms of private sector. We all know the kind of contribution private sector has made in taking India to the next level with almost nil support from government Our politicians are greedy animals who can see as far as next election. They tend to make policies which can garner them few more votes. They always try to confuse common people by distributing few kg rice and grains. Well I am also of the opinion that govt should appoint sharp regulators for specific sectors who are vigilant enough to stop fraudulent practices in the private sector. But CHARITY SHOULD BEGIN FROM HOME. Thank you.

I am agree with this point that government and private both the sector are indulge in corruption. Government employee has no fear to loose there job. Thats why they are busy in making their own profit. Every sector of goverment is full with corruption and every employee takes bribe. If someone will not take bribe. Than he can not exist in the system. So the whole system is corrupted. So government should take appropriate action to remove this corruption.

Private sector are profit oriented and they always use bribe as a tool to make their work and profit. They are the source of government employee bribe. If they stop to give bribe. Then government employee will not be able to take bribe.

So both are equally responsible for the corruption.
