Hello everyone.

My name is Rajdeep Kumar.

Now we are going to discuss about privatization will lead to less corruption.

Yes, definitely privatization will lead less corruption it also depends on mindset and atitude of people,

1.Because some people in government job they think they are government servent they don't work full efficiency.

2. Because of privatization improve efficiency in comparison of public sector.

3. Hard rules and regulations in private sector.
They always afraid about job because they know if I don't work proper then our job should go.

Conclusion :- In my opinion, privatization will lead to less corruption because of privatization people work full efficiency, and last I would like to say that it's depends on mindset of people and education is the best way to reduce corruption.

Thank you everyone

Yes, privatisation leads to less corruption. It also depends on the mindset, attitude of the people. I think partial privatisation will be better. When you see in some government Sectors the government Employees work slower with less efficiency and takes bribes to do some work but when coming to private sector they do work efficiently, effectively and also in less time and without any corruption. So the govt, should identify the corrupted sectors and privitise them so I think partial privatisation could be better. Without privatisation also the govt can increase efficiency by creating accountability and transparency in it and also by waging some fine on the employees when the work gets delayed.

Hi Everyone,

I would also like to add some more points of the discussion over the topic 'Will privatisation lead to less corruption?'.

The answer. Is " Yes" & "No".

Why Yes? because the corruption in the form of giving bribes to bureaucrats, issuing recruitment forms in some consideration and then cancelling those exams without refund, Giving bribes to government officials to get the work done who deliberately delay the works, even bribes to get the government job too will be under control to a great extent because there will always be a fear among the employees to be fired if caught red-handed.

Through privatisation, if one form of corruption is rooted out then the other form of corruptions is born. Eg. Private hospitals, schools, colleges, railways and so on will definitely charge high fees to earn a profit because privatisation is always profit-oriented and then there might be the monopoly and monotony is always a sign of danger. Will that not be counted under corruption?

Now Why "No" because Corruption has many forms and only particular types of corruption can be rooted out through privatisation mentioned as above.

Well In India we can't blame to bureaucrats, govt officials or politicians, businessman, smugglers, hoarders or tax evaders for the corruptions somewhere we all are corrupt, somewhere we all have also given or taken bribes, somewhere we all try to evade taxes, most of us don't stop at the red light if the traffic police is not there so corruption is in our blood. If we want corrupt free India then we need to make ourselves corrupt-free first.

Corruption can't be reduced through privatisation because it depends on our attitude, needs, self-respect, desires, emotions, financial condition, salary, taxes rate, laws, rules and regulations, selfishness, behaviour, etc.

But, Yes privatisation can help us in other ways.

Thank you.

Privatisation leads to less corruption, I will not agree with this statement because either it is private or Government, it is the attitude of the person to take bribe. In any sector, if the higher authorities are powerful and dynamic then automatically the system will be effective. If we see the private schools, colleges and hospitals, how much cost they are charging for the individuals? Is it not corruption? How the poor people can afford all these?, if all the sectors become privatised. So some specific sectors should be in the control of Government only.

Hi Everyone.

Our topic is "Privatization will lead to less Corruption. As we know, Government officials are generally involved Bribe to get work done apart from getting higher salaries from Govt Department. But it doesn't mean that there will be no corruption if it privatized. Corruption spread due to Human beings, not to due to sector whether is private or Social. It may lead to less corruption sometimes because as private sector provide quality but does not gives any guarantee or surety that it will results in less Corruption.

Hello friends, firstly a very good evening to all of you. So here I want to put my ideas about.

"Privatization will lead to less corruption". So firstly I want to say actually for what meaning it stand for. ? Privatization is the transferring ownership of a business, enterprise, agency or public service from the public sector to the private sector. As every coin have its two faces so it also has some pros &cons.


*Employees of the private sector are given high salaries, so they are much oriented towards their work and less interested in corruption.

*Quick action of private sectors against bribery, so it develope fear in employees for a bribe.

*Private institute provide more facilities and care to the public as well as belongings because it belongs to them. It helps in securing the property, and other things.

*Most important thing is that mostly GDP depend on taxes paid by a private institution.

*Competitive spirit in the sector will enhance and it will lead to qualitative products and services.

So, at last, I want to say that corruption does not depend on whether it's private or government, it completely depends on the individual's attitude. But it is necessary to take a step forward for corruption-free India.

Good Evening Friends,

According to me, Privatization leads to less corruption as well as it is not suitable for many private sectors. So, It does not only provide a good thing for the people whereas corruption will happen in many sectors. So, private sectors or Privatization will helpful for the people's requirements as well as some bad things also happen. So we should not allow corruption.

Hello everyone.

Today's topic is privatization will lead to less corruption. I think am agree with this statement privatisation will lead less corruption in comparison with government sector because the job of the government sector are secured by the labour act while in the private sector they are easy to hire and fire the employees. I think privatization is not a good solution of this problem. The government should make a partnership with the private sector. (public-private partnership) basically what is privatization?

Privatization is public-private partnership in which the private and government companies come together and to do a project effectively.

Benefits of privatization:

1. Less corruption: because employees have fear to lose our jobs.

2. Improving the working system of all department/sectors.

3. Employees give better performance.

4. Follow rules and regulation properly.

I think corruption leads everywhere in government sectors as well as private sector. So the peoples are becoming aware to take the right initiative to reduce these type of corruption activities.

Thank you.

In my opinion, Privatisation will lead to less corruption compared to government organisations. The reason being Nepotism present in government organisations and pressures on organisations to induct more and more employees as government is concerned more with unemployment then with profits earned. Privatisation will reduce external involvement during working of organisation. Also not all companies should be privatised as they will start monopolising markets for their own good.

Hello Friends,

In my opinion, it is true that privatization will lead to less corruption in comparison to the government sector because the job of the employees in the private sector is not secured and they know very well if they would not provide the result to the organisation which would contribute to the growth of it they will be fired or retrenched which will lead to less corruption in the private sector but on the contrary side it is obvious that it depends on the person's mind to get bribe or not but if we talk about the ratio so it 80:20 i.e. there are only 20% people who are corrupt in the private sector but in the government sector this ratio is 80% which turned me to tell that privatization will lead to less corruption but is is also take in the, mind that 100% privatization is not beneficial because every private organisation work for profit but government organisation work for country.

Hi Guys,

I think so "Privatization will lead to Less Corruption" because all the private sectors follow its own rules and regulations so that they can increase their profit ratio and to decrease their possible loss in front of their growth.

Getting jobs in private sectors are base on personal interviews which become a strong lock over the employees to do work honestly and there are many more thinks to do with them so that they don't think about fraud at all inside or out side of the company.

Corruption is all over different way to earn money that is totally illegal activity which we keep on trying in our lives to be a rich personality.

I'm not trying to say that 'BLACK' is strong to apply in our lives but 'WHITE' is stronger than 'BLACK' which gives us peaceful mind.

Of course, Privatization will lead to less corruption as we see in the private sector if you will don't give a proper service the other competitive companies will easily take over you and by giving better service than you and on those private sector employees there is a proper control to work well or to do well. Rather they only think throughtout the day to finish the target before deadline any how. On the other hand employees of public sector are better known that the common people's don't have choices exepct us, as they don't have the time limits of work if the work is more they just easily postpond their work on next day and leave on time and time after time they start to take a bribe because they don't have to answerable to anyone rather no one have control over them which should be.

But morally I think privatization is not the option it's a time to change people's mind regarding bribe because nowadays giving bribe is just a common thing and until when this mindset will change this Debate will be gone continue to do privatization or not!

Corruption is a state of mind, there is no guarantee that privatization will lead to less corruption. Lets take the case of banking sector- there is less cases or reports of corruption in private banks not because people working in the private banks are the most sincere but because the share of private banks in the banking sector is much less when compared to that of public sector banks which leads to less cases of corruption or violations in the private sector banks.

Good morning.

Corruption comes from us both from the govt sector or private one. If a country is completely privatised then it may lead to.

Some more problems. Privatisation is just for.

The shake of shareholders. Just imagine if education or transport or medical system is completely privatised then we will face some more new problems especially financial problems. Corruption is not only floated on govt sector but also in private ones. Best example is Satyam computers company.

So what my opinion is, first we should make a step against the evil by stop giving and receiving bribes at any cost. No one comes to change the society we are the young rebels can do magic and make the country as a corruption free.

Firstly I want to tell the meaning of privatization. Conversion of ownership from the public sector (govt sector) to private sector. According to me, privatization will lead to less corruption because-.

- In public sector, they work for political purpose rather than economic purpose. -.

- The manager is more accountable to employer /shareholder and to the consumer.

- in private sector, good and service is more efficient than public, which results in output, more profit, and less corruption.

-in private industry or companies have more profit that why they can invest more and get profit.

- privatization will inc choice to the consumer and also lead to economic growth which inc GDP.

- IF employer gets better salary then chance of involving decreases.

Sector worker tends to a laziness they do work slowly and couldn't understand the requirement of hard work, If these sector privatised then there is a flow of work, People will tend to work hard for jobs, salary.

I think, yes, privatization leads to less corruption. I will explain it by example i.e. like in the Ahmedabad city there is private company of light supplier i.e.Torrent Power. It solves the problem on only one call. But if street light is gone off and we call 10 times to govt than they will be doing at 11th complaint. But I don't think that only private sectors only lead to less corruption.

The change in Human mentality will only need to not less corruption but it will be no corruption. Because if people will only not give any money for to be done his work than there will be no corruption. Like students give the money to his coaching sir for giving him more marks or to give paper. So I think change in Human mentality will only lead to no corruption instead less corruption.

Hi, friends! according to my point of view, privatization is a very helpful idea to control corruption. Because in private sector every person is always worried about their job security. If they don't do their work in a right way, they may lose their job. In the other hand, gov workers have not any fear about their job. Many people want to join government sector just to earn more money without any hard work. Privatization is a good option but if we apply it in all the sectors then it will create very problems for the middle class and lower class family. For example: if all medical sector and education sector will be privatized then it will not be easy to afford good education and good medical facilities for the poor people because we all know the condition of private colleges and private hospitals. Privatization should be done but only in those areas where corruption is a common thing like construction sector.

Corruption is there where there is power. Whether private or government it depends on the mind set of people. Where there is greed there is corruption. Corruption is there because common people are paying them and making more powerful by encouraging them. So, instead of telling the government employees it's better to educate common people, their rights because untill they stop paying corruption can't be removed. So private or government there will be corruption if there are people who pay them.

Privatisation will create more corruption, more laws and lots economic problem and basically the poorer section will get more affected. India should actually remove privatisation and make new rules. A country can be developed only by equality concept. Rules should me made like maximum property a person can have. All the companies should be taken over by the government and each and everyone in this country should be the government employee. Everyone should be paid salary and be earning more Dan salary should be punished and there should be rules for students and even daily workers should also be taken over by the government by paying them salary too. Everyone should work according to the ages and gender and rules should be made accordingly. Profit earning from exports or selling products etc should be used for making new technology, weapons and the barrier of rich and poor should be removed. So that no one dies out of starvation. And children of rich as well poor could go to same schools as everything will be governtalised. And profit earned can also be used for improving infrastructure facilities. But rules should be made very strict.

And if everything will get governmentalized then the crime rate will get decreased. But people with more education and skills and experience should be given better facilities like entertainment etc. The Proper law should be made and even breaking rules by any minister should be punished so that the next one fears to do mistakes. All problems will actually solve after making everything equal. Also, rules for children giving birth is also very important to make in this country.

Introduction- Government organisation are full of corrupted employees because at first in every government field, corruption is taking palace and after that work is done very slowly and in very bad manner. So for the solution of this, will privatisation lead to less corruption Against:

* The privatization can not eliminate corruption. Unless we decide neither do corruption nor to allow corruption.

* If all sectors are privatised then it would lead to lesser income for the government And result of that govt will increase the tax values.

* Private medical, engineering and management colleges used to collect a large amount from the students as a donation, which is an another face of corruption.

* If education sectors are privatised then it will be costly to get an education for those people who don't have a penny to bless them shelf with.

*Govt. Hospitals provide treatment at free of cost and if it happens to be privatised then poor people will not be able to afford private hospital's expense.

*If govt. Travel sectors like train and buses are privatised then it is dead sure that fears will increase, which will not be profitable in an account of the comman man.

*Corruption however, is inherent to humen nature, it can not lead to less by privatisation.

Privatisation will not lead to less corruption. Human will be human, Whether it is government sector or private sector and greed of human is never ending. A person can create corruption anywhere it is not about the place, it is about persons moral values. For eg in a private institute teachers are not giving proper lectures and notes to the student, which lead students to join coachings necessarily and they join coaching classes of those teachers only who are teaching in schools and colleges, because they give proper notes and lectures at coaching classes and even then they support the students at colleges and schools and give good marks in practical exams. So, indirectly they are asking students to join their classes. In this way, corruption is caused in private institutes.

Secondly, a few days back I read a news, in BSc and BE students have to submit working project so students were forced by one of their professors to take a project from him only and pay him 1800 Rs otherwise he will fail them in the exam. Later on during viva session, external checked their projects and found all project are similar and on asking questions to students they were not able to answer them, on pressuring them to know from where did they get the project they told that our professor forced us to pay him for the project and take that project. So in this way students are not learning anything they are just spoiling there future just because of such corrupted faculties.

In my view point, privatisation will definitely reduce the corruption. Because Red Tapism is not possible there. That is a time delay for moving a file related to problems or needs of common man. In government organisations in order to make these files move common people is required to give them bribe. Why this so? It is mainly because of the job security enjoyed by govt officials. They are not having any fear of loosing the job. But in the case of Pvt companies, these actions are enough for loosing the job. This will instil a fear of loosing the job among employees. So corruption will be reduced. Another reason for reduced corruption is higher remuneration paid by these Pvt companies. Because of these salaries, there is no need for receiving any bribe. And above all these mindsets of people should be changed first.

If we want to eliminate corruption completely then we have to change the mindset of people completely. Government should formulate stringent rule and law.

And there is no doubt that private company can give better facility than a govt sector because the pay off govt employees are fixed they will get the salary at the last of month either they have done the job properly or not but In private sector it is not like that if you have to get salary then you have to do the job properly.

As per my perception, privatization will lead less corruption. Govt employee has high-level job security. They know no one can fire him/her except some rare of the rarest case. Keeping this point of view they take advantage of this and take a bribe for doing his duty. Govt job employee is in full of corruption from bottom level to high level. But in private case job security is not present. Every time you feel the pressure of doing your best for your organisation. Your senior officer pressurises you on a regular basis.

In my opinion, the first question is why we need the privatisation? Is it mainly because of the corruption in the government sector or because of the inefficiency of the governance? If corruption is the main reason then I think we are on the wrong track because privatisation is not the solution to the corruption. We have the examples of Satyam and 2G scams. Therefore, the solution of the corruption is the good governance, a good judicial system, stringent law and order system. So rather focussing on the privatisation we should find the root-cause of the corruptions and its solutions. And I believe that one of the root causes of the corruptions is the integrity of people whether they are government officials or they are common people. The other major issues are poor judicial system, weak law and order system. So until and unless people will not care about their moral and ethics values, until and unless we will not reform the judicial systems and until and unless we will not have a stringent law and order system, corruption is never going to end.

Therefore, I would like to conclude my opinion with some key points:.

1. We should stop giving and taking the bribes whatever the cost we have to pay for.

2. Please, don't blame the system and don't wait for the others rather start taking the initiatives in removing the corruptions.

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.

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.

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.

Hello friends,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

According to myself it is apt because in privatization people are known for their work rather than their positions.

The root cause of corruption is human selfishness and their laziness.

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.

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.

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.

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.
