. Corruption in India is a major issue and adversely affects its economy. A 2005 study conducted by Transparency International in India found that more than 62% of Indians had first-hand experience of paying bribes or influence peddling to get jobs done in public offices successfully. In its 2008 study, Transparency International reports about 40% of Indians had first-hand experience of paying bribes or using a contact to get a job done in public office.
In 2012 India has ranked 94th out of 176 countries in Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index, tied with Benin, Colombia, Djibouti, Greece, Moldova, Mongolia, and Senegal.[5] Most of the largest sources of corruption in India are entitlement programs and social spending schemes enacted by the Indian government. Examples include Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act and National Rural Health Mission.Other daily sources of corruption include India’s trucking industry which is forced to pay billions in bribes annually to numerous regulatory and police stops on its interstate highways.
Indian media has widely published allegations of corrupt Indian citizens stashing trillions of dollars in Swiss banks. Swiss authorities, however, assert these allegations to be a complete fabrication and false.[9][10] The causes of corruption in India include excessive regulations, complicated taxes and licensing systems, numerous government departments each with opaque bureaucracy and discretionary powers, monopoly by government controlled institutions on certain goods and services delivery, and the lack of transparent laws and processes. There are significant variations in level of corruption as well as in state government efforts to reduce corruption across India.

    Corruption has become something respectable in India, because respectable people are involved in it.
    But Strong and stringent laws need to be enacted which gives no room for the guilty to escape.
    Remember clap is done by two hand not from only one,
    Government should also take action to stop corruption.

    Corruption, like a termite, is gnawing away the glory of this country & there is no sector left, where corruption has not sneaked in.
    The main reason behind corruption is the laid back attitude of the citizens & evryone is supposed to realise that if they want to get rid of social evils, they have to make sure that they do not participate in any activity that involves corruption.

    Corruption is the major and serious problem which our country is facing in day to day life….
    our whole system is responsible for the corruption in the country and if an individual blame another person or the government for corruption than its the wrong thing..!!!!
    This problem can only be solved out if and only if each and every person decide and take the responsibility to remove it from root…by avoiding corruption at basic levels.

    Corruption is like a millipede.. you cannot count the legs but once through you; it’ll always remain a pain.
    Sense of insecurity, getting caught, demoralized and insulted.. mocked upon are some of the consequences that arise due to involvement of a person in any corrupt practice.
    People need to be self aware and conscious enough to prevent any such thing from happening.
