Combating the Omnipresence of Corruption
Journal Title:Bonfring International Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management Science
Corruption is a global phenomenon and is omnipresent. Corruption has risen steadily and is now rampant in our society. In the words of Atifete Jahjaga, Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is enlightenment, there is debate. When there is debate, there are solutions. The problem arises when there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability and only then there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation. From a detailed analysis on corruption, I came to know that Corruption in India affects all levels of the society but its in the administrative one that the biggest damage is done to the people and comes to exacerbate poverty. Not only does corruption in India worsen poverty, it also drags the whole countrys development down by stealing its resources that it causes serious impacts on our society through various means. Also our nation is responding very slowly to this developing issue as a result of lack of proper decision making at higher levels. Being a student of legal background I do have certain responsibilities towards my society that in my main paper I have covered various aspects on the impacts of corruption on our Indian economy along with various solutions to curb this growing evil. We can eliminate corruption if there is a joint effort. And if we do that will be our highest achievement as human beings.
