Corruption Is The Main Problem Of India

In this post I have discussed about the corruption mainly in politics and its impact on social life.


Corruption is the main problem of many Asian countries specially India. The specific meaning of the word corruption is misusing one's office for a private benefit. It involves both the monetary and non-monetary benefit. In simple words every person of higher level or lower level person are mostly corrupted, they used to do un-official work for the sake of money. This is all about the meaning of corruption.

Corruption ( A big problem)

Corruption is now a global problem common in both developed and developing countries. A corrupted person never think about the country. The main work for the corrupted persons is to increase their earnings through un authorized work.

The most obvious effect of political corruption is a loss of public esteem for politicians and political life.The impact on business and the wider society is also terrible. Business gains some more cash credits as they are corrupted but these things occur only on the initial stage. Corruption is also called diseases in India. This disease increases risks and costs to business, damages investor confidence and stops economic growth of the business.

India is famous allover the world just because of its culture and the great India cricket team. Corruption in India is the main result of poverty in India and also the poor growth of India.

Corrupted politicians

All the leaders of India are mostly corrupted. They used to do un-authorized work for their own development.

Every politicians are having hundreds of crores of money but their income is not more that of Rs 50,000 . They got all that money from where, this is the main question that arises in mind of most of the Indians but they are not authorized to do anything. This is the result of poor government in India.

A major corruption in Common wealth games Delhi

It is really very shameful for all the Indians that there was not proper arrangements for the foreign players in the Common wealth games in Delhi.
Not only this the courts and play grounds were also not fully ready for the matches. This is the result of Indian corruption. When there was a situation of flood in Delhi, the walls of stadiums were also having lines in that which makes a bad atmosphere not specially in Delhi but in the whole country. The roads, bridges were having big pits and holes in that makes the country feel shameful. The contractors, politicians and engineers are responsible for all the misfortune happened.

There were also not proper arrangements in stadiums, all the rooms for foreign and Indians players were not at all good.

Government gave Rs 250,0000000 /- for the proper development of stadiums but only few crore were used to do so and the remaining money goes in the pocket of politicians,contractors and engineers.

Steps to remove corruption from India permanently

1. All the politicians should realize what their main duty is.
2.Black money should be sealed by the government.
3.Youths should make a revolution against it.
4.Punishment should be given to all the corrupt person in India.

Corruption is the main bacteria who is eating our country continuously

Yes, you are right. Our country is still a developing country and the main reason for it is the huge amounts of corruption going on at every level of administration. We will be able o see a fully developed nation only when the so called corruption is been totally eliminated from India. I do not think it is a easy task but at least we the common man should try to do something about it.

Corruption can not be removed from humans. Because our need is unlimited. Only politicians are corrupted - this is a very wrong statement. As India is having more than 120 Crore people, 100 Crore people are corrupted. Because everybody wants to earn some extra money for their better life. I have experience that not only politicians, government employees, private employees, police department, bureaucrats, all are corrupted. Everybody wants to get some extra money to do something. You go to RTO office they will ask for some money to get your work done. The reason behind that to fight with the inflation we need more money which is not enough to fulfill with our earned salary or money.

So this would be a very long process to reduce corruption. Indian law has very strict rules but for corrupt people it is easy to get escape but still we should have believe on judgement as we have seen Madam Jayalalitha get arrested last week for having more money than she earned.

So to reduce corruption, first of all, people have to become educated. They should know their rights, how to use and where to use? If a contractor doing your road work with low quality materials (reason behind is he has paid the local corporator, MLA or Engineer to get that job so obviously he will do corruption) then you should raise voice. Only if the road has better material with good quality then for next 5 year you won't that road to be repaired and your money get saved (as we are the tax payer by which every work is getting done). If any government employee asks for money to get your work done then complain against him instead of giving small bribe that will create fear in other employees although it might not get fully stop but at least you can become examples for others to reduce corruption. So this is our duty and responsibility to reduce corruption, if we start work from today our next generation will definitely see a Corruption free India.

I would like to appreciate your thoughts about corruption. But what I personally believe is that corruption not only has its roots in Indian politics but in almost every Indian citizen. It is about the people. Now a days, people not only want to make money but they want to earn it in real quick manner. To remove corruption people should have leadership qualities in a sense that the person should do his/her own work without anyone's help. Be confident enough to find himself a job. People who follow each other and don't try to do work themselves, end up copying one another like stealing someone's ideas which is a form of corruption.
Corruption is a very sensitive issue and every Indian citizen should realize their responsibility and start making efforts which can help in building a corruption free nation.
