Seeking "Sexual Favour" is corruption now - will it be helpful?The Parliamentary Committee has come up with a new proposal. As per the proposal, seeking "sexual favour" for getting your work done will be equivalent to asking for a bribe. The violators can be penalised for the same under the same rule that deals with corruption cases.
The new anti-corruption bill proposed "any kind of gratification except the legal remuneration" to be included in defining the offence by a public servant, thus bringing the demand for sexual favours in the purview of the offence. Hopefully, this will help a few hapless victims in approaching law enforcing agencies. The proposed bill also seeks to bring even the private sector into the ambit of anti-corruption laws.
