Corruption is one of the most serious consequences of poor governance. A country with widespread corruption invariably has low investment rates, poor economic growth and limited human development. The public will find their access to the most basic social services severely restricted and the government will find the cost of delivering these services inordinately high. Corruption has no positive effects. It hits the poor hardest, it makes a mockery of financial systems and it actively works against the legitimacy of the state. Poverty, development, growth and investment - all suffer at the hands of corruption.
Corruption is highly spread in the field of civil service, politics, business and other illegal fields. India is a famous country for its democracy but it is corruption which disturbs its democratic system. Politicians are highly responsible for all type of corruption in the country. We chose our leaders by having lots of expectations to them to lead our country in the right direction. In the starting they make us lots of promises however, just after the voting they forget all that and involve in corruption. We are sure that our India would be corruption free a day when our political leaders would be free of greediness and use their power, money, status and position in right direction to lead the country, not their own luxury and personal wishes.
Presently, India figures as the seventh most corrupt country in the world according to Transparency International’, a non-government German Organization. Defence Ministry and Ministry of Communication are regarded as ‘gold mines for making money’. Conclusion
The steps should be taken to correct the situation overall. Declarations of property and assets of the government employees are made compulsory and routine and surprise inspections and raids be conducted at certain intervals.
A report from international organizations, including the UN Global Compact, estimates that corruption adds as much as 65 percent (PDF) to the total cost of doing business globally, and as much as 75 percent to the cost of procuring contracts in developing countries. When it comes to ease of doing business, the World Bank ranks India 689 out of 688 countries in 7566.
Corruption can be need-based or greed-based. Better governance can at least help to check need-based corruption. Better governance can check greed based corruption also because punishment for the corrupt will be very effective and prompt in a better-governed country.
