Even the poorest in India pay bribes to get their work done

7

Corruption is big in India, no 2 ways about that. Globally, India ranks at lowly 132, behind most of the developed and developing countries.

The general perception on corruption is that only rich in India get their work done by way of corruption. However, recent study shows that the poorest (Below poverty line – BPL) junta too pay bribes in big numbers.

The TII-CMS India Corruption Study shows that below poverty line households paid more than 883,00,00,000 (883 crore rupees) to avail basic services like Public Distribution systems, hospitals, school education, electricity and water supply.

I was always under the impression that most of the middle and higher class (essentially people with money) paid bribes. I know one of my very close friends paid Rupees two lakhs to get admission for his daughter in Nursery, yes nursery !

And this does not even cover the Indian legal system, which is probably the most corrupt service in India.

Here are the ranking of top corrupt services :

and levels of corruption ranked by states.

Most corrupt Indian States

I thought Maharashtra had very high levels of corruption, but according to the study it is one of the states that has corruption in moderation. I shudder to think about the situation in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar !

    Because without paying bribe no one can get his work done either poor or rich, this is system in' BHARAT KNOWN AS SONE KI CHYDIA, only ruling Govt should make strict rules to eradicate corruption, if some one is caught taking bribe many higher persons put pressure to release the bribe taker.

    Corruption has rooted in from top to bottom in India and ruling Govt should made strict rulles and should join hands with Sh. Anna Hazare to erdicate corruption from India and to convert it again SONE KI CHIDYA FROM LOHE KI CHIDYA AT PRESENT.

    hmmm.Probably we can discuss (non parochial) the reasons for the states in this list.
    Here are a cpl of obs:
    1. bimaru states alongwith places of conflict occupy the top positions
    2.Presence of TN and K’taka shows that even highly industrialised states(with somewhat larger educated populations) may be more corrupt.
