Even this challenging situation would ease
The corruption is there not because of the hierarchical structure but because of negligible follow-up action against the corrupt officials and equally light punishment of the officials if convicted. Many government officials are sure that they can get away with corrupt practices by managing the corrupt higher-ups and those higher-ups are busy greasing the palm of the politicians. The hierarchical structure is maintained everywhere but unless the corrupts are brought to book and severely punished nothing is going to change. Think of the situation described by Mohan Sir in his reply @#734083. When people are 'aware' of the corrupt practices of the revenue department how many really lodge a complaint against these officials/brokers? We will find many indulging in corrupt practices by offering more to the officials or brokers so that the registration deeds or clauses can be altered illegally. Many officials are corrupt and many people are also indulging in corrupt practices by offering them bribes. Knowing all these things we remain quiet. I think, we also have to act to get these corrupt officials booked.

I immediately went to the officer and took the letter from my pocket and gave it to him. He read it and asked me about my problem I told him that his clerk had asked me for Rs 10/- as bribery. He advised me to get my name transferred from my district employment exchange to his office. Then I came out of his office. My colleague advised me to give Rs 10/- and get my name registered.
When there is no value for values and ethics and when there is undue importance for money. this type of things will happen. In elections, a voter had to vote for a candidate as per my interest. But money is playing an important role in elections also. The candidate spends huge money to win and his immediate focus will be on getting back the money he spent.
One should remember that giving bribe is also equally illegal but not only taking. Whatever systems the governments bring, unless otherwise, the mindset of all the people change, it is difficult to see no corruption in India.
