This state of corruption that India is in now is affecting its economy a lot. India has been ranked as 94th out of 176 countries in corruption. A study in 2005 found out that about 62% of Indians had experience of paying bribes to get jobs done in public offices successfully. The largest sources of corruption in India are entitlement programs and social spending schemes made by Indian government. Another daily source of corruption include trucking industry, where is obligatory to pay billions in bribes annually to police stops.
One of the main causes of corruption is said to be the fact that India include excessive regulations, complicated taxes and licensing system , numerous government departments each with opaque bureaucracy and discretionary powers, monopoly by government controlled institutions on certain goods and services delivery, and the lack of transparent laws processes.
The fact that violent career criminals enter parliament since the 1970`s, had weakened popular faith in governmental institutions. The current relationship between politics and criminality is a consequence of corruption that arose in the public office. The only way to combat corruption, by words of Hazare, is to have a substantial overhaul of the wider legislation that currently protects the most powerful public servants who abuse their positions, and a real engagement with the influence of violence and organized crime on national politics.
