Many people think that the corruption will reduce if the punishment is given to those who are doing corruption. The corruption is caused due to both giver and taker.

The corruption will be reduced when the competitiveness by converting government departments to public limited or privatized.

If you see the history of the telephone department there was a lot of corruption in the department when it was the government department.

One has to wait for years to get the connection. Even after getting the connection employees were demanding money for giving the connection. Also, there were cases the employees taking bribes and the bills were reduced for the customers by stopping their meters.

After the entry of private operators and the conversion of telephone department to public limited company everything has changed without any punishment to any employee. Now the corruption has almost nil in the BSNL. If you see the corruption in a department 80% of the employees will be taking the bribes. But the anti-corruption department will be catching only 1% of the corrupted people. So this was it is very difficult to stop corruption. Every department which linked to the public money should be privatized and the competitiveness should be brought in the departments just like BSNL.

Then the corruption will be automatically come down.

Everyone is talking how to eradicate corruption but none is actually working on it. Leaders they talk as if like after completing their speech in any meeting, they are going to take stringent actions against culprit but they do nothing. All their talking is only till their conference hall.

So what actually is needed to be done to make our country transparent and corruption free. First of all, deadline should be given to all political leaders and office bearers to show their income within a week and if they lag, tough actions should be taken against them. Let's not assume that only these people are involved in corruption, a traffic is also corrupt if he or she catches you violating traffic rules and then leaves you after taking some money. Those who are involved in manipulation of money are not only the one to be called as corrupt if someone is not doing his office duty on time, in spite of the scheduled time at 10 o'clock, if they are coming after two or three hours then this is also a sign of corruption.

There should be some independent body which should not be accountable to government, rather it should be accountable to all general people, should immediately be formed. There are news that several people transfer their money to someone else's account and deposit this large sum in Swiss bank their account should be properly checked and if found guilty all their money should be seized and used in public welfare programmes.

Strict actions should be taken especially against those bada babus working in government offices who never forward any of your bills without taking money. CCTV cameras should be installed everywhere, and they should also remain active 24-7 such that all activities of anyone can be checked if needed.

I think taking these measures we can reduce corruption level and make India great again.

Hi guys,

Problems and solution have the relation like light and shadow, if light is bright then the shadow will be darker.

Now about our problem corruption which is born because for bribing someone to do something against the rule which is rule of our society from early ages. So chasing a mirage never lead us to solution it only lead us too another mirage. So we have too focus on present system no need to chase the mirage.

Hi guys,

In, my point of view, India is a developing country. The growth is study and stable. Along with growth India facing many problems. One of the main problems is corruption. Corruption is very dangerous to the society. If you think nowadays situation how it is serious it. It is spreading like a virus it kills the entire system. We have to know that what kind of problems will future and present also. Some of the people say that it is out of our hands if you think deeply to find out the solution this problem. Even the government of India trying to control this one. How we can provide a good life for our next generation.

Corruption mean lack of integrity. India is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. It's ranked at 76th position in the 168 countries.

The corruption will reduce by:-

- Economic development.

Demand and supply gap is to be reduced to stop corruption.

- Simplification of rules and procedures:-

Complicated lead of corruption. , and intimation rather than permission.

- Serve punishment:-

Lenient punishment leads to corrupt practices or strict punishment for breaking laws and check and balances to avoid misuse of power.

In my point of view, it totally depends upon masses. We are the one who gives bribe to make our work smoother without any obstacle. The bribe taker only takes bribe if we are doing some illegal work or we don't have patience till to complete the government procedure. If we have patience and if stop doing some sort of illegal work. The bribe taker has no point to take a bribe from you.

At last, I would like to conclude my point that the solution is in our hand we should have stop giving bribe to come out from the suffering.

Hi Guys,

Actually, it is right to say that "Solution of corruption is a mirage till we catch top public figure" but till a particular scale. Because catching read handed all people is difficult but doing something in a short for all offenders is easy. Like making a useful law for a particular illegal activity, to band some ways and giving a tight security, deeply search on people's working etc. Searching the way actually corruption is nothing but lack of knowledge of the legal departments of the work environment where all illegal activities take place. Some people know about but they close their eyes for taking a bribe and some people have different-2 kinds of fear to do this, these kinds of things are there through which corruption occupies a huge place. India is a developing country where all people want to earn handsome money very fast and they do some bad activities which consider illegal. Earning money they forget about a healthy environment and they create an unhealthy environment for all. They use to do bad activities and depose them for others and other walking people become part of those illegal activities easily and that number keep increasing very fast in the place. So having a discernible attitude against the corruption is more important than catching top figure of public.

No, it's not a mirage till we catch up the top figure, it is so till we the common people are not willing to be a part of a transparent system. Look corruption is a two way flow. Just to avoid all the mess in any government procedure and to let things done with partial legal processes, we offer bribe for our convenience. Moreover the common mentality of the government employees is to earn perks apart from their wages. So they find it a habit to do their everyday job only if the have been paid additionally.

So corruption just not lead to an end until each and every individual is willing for transparent bribe free system.

No, Corruption is not a mirage until we catch a top public figure. Where there is a problem there is always a solution. It's upon us to realise that and take actions. Firstly, if corrupt people are bribe takers then we the bribe givers. One needs to change himself before seeking a change in a macro level. People who don't have patience and wants to get their jobs done anyhow is the first person responsible for corruption, those who take illegal money use their power to make extra money. If we as citizens are aware then corruption will definitely decrease. So in conclusion, I would say if not totally it partly depends on us. Thank you.

Every society is divided into sections :the poor, the middle class and the upper class as per the income is concerned. The degree of actions of the people depend on which class they are belonging. Corruption is very deeply rooted in the society ranging from very low to very high level. Curbing the people involved in low level corruption would not help much in the betterment of society unless we catch the bigger fishes. The top public figures involved in corruption are like the brain of corruption. Once the brain is destroyed, the body cannot survive. But if we are involved in destroying the fingers, hands, legs etc it can rebuild itself. Hence I completely agree that corruption is a mirage till we catch top public figure.
