Can the Government formalize Corruption?If there is one thing common to our nation and many others it is corruption. As long as I can remember, I have heard about corruption, what was in few tens and hundreds have now become few thousands to few lakhs or even more.
Virtually any service sector you can think of ( politics, law and order, judiciary, healthcare, trade sector) has corruption, only the extent or shades of bribes change.
Since we cannot abolish it, can we formalize it? Any citizen can pay or receive corruption but in the form of an accounted transaction (cheque, payTM, bank transfer etc).
Whatever money is paid, it would be taxed. It would be converting a rampant system of exchange of unaccounted/black money into a manageable system of accounted money changing hands and the Government can have some idea of the magnitude of the problem. Who knows we can even find some ways to control it in the future.
I know many would criticize this thread but let's see the views of other members, please.
