Corruption is deeply rooted in Indian Society, it is often found in each turn and corners be it on Road, in offices, departments and the latest addition to the present list is Hospitals. It’s shackled the economy back from reaching new heights, but rampant corruption has stunted the country’s development. India continues to be among the foremost corrupt countries within the world. We are consistent with the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) which ranks 180 countries. It awarded India a score of 40, rendering it the 81st most corrupt country within the world. this is often a time of crisis, each system is in failure or in recovery, only necessary services are within the fray of being organized.
The primary reasons for corruption outburst are the lack of effective management. The uncontrolled and unsupervised Institutions gives thanks to the rise in corruption. Secondly, due to the acute shortage of excellent leadership, we discover it hard to eradicate corruption from the society. But thanks to lack of support and cooperation from important sections of the society, good leaders are often defeated and suppressed. Lack of proper vigilance systems within the country. Here, some officials are tempted to urge illegal money, thereby leaving corrupt people with none penalty or punishment. Finally, a lack of economic stability which results in unemployment and changes in standard of living.
Due to corruption in India, the Indian government is unable or lacked the desire to eradicate poverty. While the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer.
In the wake of COVID-19 management, tons of Indian properly faulty systems are exposed and exploited. Like always many white collars are stained and outcome, India is suffering an excellent deal. a while back during a bunco by a couple of media journalists, private hospitals of Delhi were seen, confidently exploiting helplessness of Patients, filling up their pockets to the fullest making no note of the graveness of things.
Prices of essential services were increased because providers have taken PM’s “Aapda ko Avsar” statement way too seriously. Schools were seen demanding fee’s, while strict guidelines have already been issued against it.
2-3 days back a Hookah bar and café in Paschim Vihar, Delhi was caught serving consumers gladly which may be a perfect example of complete balance of corruption roots.
The first and foremost solution is to vary the govt. processes. If the members of the government and processes are transparent one can reduce corruption drastically. Besides, provision associated with the electing of the people representatives must be stringent that if there’s any case filed against an individual then he wouldn’t be eligible for election. In India, there’s already a provision that nobody as a criminal shall be allowed as a Member of Parliament or member of legislative. this is able to be effectively offered a primary step towards zero corruption.
Secondly, offering direct connectivity between government and the public. this will reduce corruption by increasing direct contact between government and therefore the governed. E-governance could help tons in this direction. Responsible citizens should report cases of corruption to the vigilance department immediately at once. Besides, they ought to follow up the cases of corruption as a mere reporting of the evil practice isn’t sufficient for effective eradication.
Thirdly, government and vigilance agencies should keep a check on their source of income and bank accounts for the leaders and their associates. If any suspicious transactions are found they need to be reported to the judiciary. Besides, if any leader isn’t performing his duties properly, then he/she should be sacked from the position. Top government posts and positions should be supported performance. The government should do performance appraisals of leaders regularly.
Demons of society will continue to look for opportunities to hunt the easy preys but the Heroes need to ensure good management and leadership so that Indian Society’s fate doesn’t fall in oblivion.
