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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good morning!

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. So you can do work and only work. You don't have time to do or think another issue like corruption.
