How can we stop corruption?

Posted by Girish Patil | 7:04 PM

Let’s have this topic and share some innovative ideas for stopping or minimizing corruption in India.

Many people think that the corruption will reduce if the punishment is given to those who are doing corruption. The corruption is caused due to both giver and taker.

The corruption will be reduced when the competitiveness by converting government departments to public limited or privatized.

If you see the history of the telephone department there was a lot of corruption in the department when it was the government department.

One has to wait for years to get the connection. Even after getting the connection employees were demanding money for giving the connection. Also there were cases the employees taking bribes and the bills were reduced for the customers by stopping their meters.

After the entry of private operators and the conversion of telephone department to public limited company every thing has changed without any punishment to any employee. Now the corruption has almost nil in the BSNL. If you see the corruption in a department 80% of the employees will be taking the bribes. But the anti corruption department will be catching only 1% of the corrupted people. So this was it is very difficult to stop corruption. Every department which linked to the public money should be privatized and the competitiveness should be brought in the departments just like BSNL.

Then the corruption will be automatically come down.

Hi,

Corruption is one of the major thing which everyone has started now a days. This is practiced in Government offices more. There are several authorities of the Government which are opened only to solve the problem of corruption. We can see in many of the television channels that the Boards opened for the sake of solving corruption are actively participating and we can see the television channels telecasting the corruption and the way the people are caught.

There is something called "String Operation" in Journalistic term. This means that there is a small camera like substance which can be put in any part of our body and the other people can rarely know about this. If this camera is fixed we can have the video and audio. In this way many of the officers in the Government who are taking bribes are arrested and punished.

The corruption elimination should become motive for each and everybody of us. All of us should take it as an oath to eradicate it. Because many times we only offer bribes to finish our jobs early. If any competition exists people used to get advantage out of it by buying some of the officers involved.

We should take it as a crime for shortcuts of the processes. If people stop giving bribes then automatically corruption will be eliminated.

Factors are many for this scourge which has seeped into everyday life of this country. However, we should not despair easily and much less, link it with our fate.

Yes, India is a great nation, with its seemingly peculiar incongruent layers of materialistic forces and vagaries of emotional dimensions.

Yes, as with human nature, we are also driven by greed and inhibited by panic. Tangible factors such as inequality of resources with people, and advantage one has over the other due to disparity of wealth and power, have rendered the common man to adopt any method to narrow the gap. They do not actually care much for adhering to ethics while pushing to bridge the gap. The tangible reasons are numerous, among these poverty reigns over almost all others.

A person ravaged by the cruelty of it will come to believe that ‘money is everything’, because he sees money that might deliver him from the clutches of perpetual poverty to a comfortable life. Once he attains a life of comfort, he wishes for more. He sees the other rich people and their life style; he desires to get to their level of opulence. How he gets their does not matter. It is the end that will justify the means.

What faster medium than to become a party to corruption? Well if we think deeply, it’s the attitude of the individual that should count much to calibrate corruption. Not every poor is corrupt. Not every rich is corrupt.

What could be the cause having the most weightage? I believe it’s called ‘scarcity mentality’ versus ‘abundant mentality’. ‘Scarcity mentality’ is not necessarily attributed to the have-nots. On the other hand, ‘abundant mentality’ is not always the guiding force of the rich.

Once we understand these and change our thought processes on these lines, I believe we may have an insight into corruption. And we might just begin to develop that ‘abundant mentality’.

Corruption can only be stopped when each person thinks bad about corruption because it is not something that we can stop others from involving in corruption. They themselves have to realize the ill effects of corruption.

Another good method is the fear factor. When people are threatened with great threat people tend to submit. This fact can be applied carefully to stop corruption.

Don’t encourage corruption.

Report whenever you find any corruption in your day to day life.

Don’t take bribe as well as don’t give bribe.

Teach good moral values to your children.

By educating the illiterate.

By implementing special agency to catch bribers.

By having separate courts for this issue to punish immediately.

Corruption must be eliminated first from ourselves then we should talk about the whole society.

Hi friends

we can unite and go and personally thrash the corrupt official so much and give him warning, as we will be going in group of 10-12 people and thrashing that official no one will come to know, we can also do quiet spying on him and quietly damage his car / bike / house, so that he realizes what corruption is. My blood boils every time I see corrupt people, only If I get support we could vent our frustration n thrash these corrupt rascals. Also we can do yagna at some place n do black magic on him, but that can even cause harm, as the threefold law of nature goes as follows:

Ever mind the Rule of Three

Three times what thou gives returns to thee

This lesson well, thou must learn

Thee only gets what though dost earn!
