or in simpler words : The charter also seeks to make it mandatory for government officials to acknowledge complaints from the public within two days of receipt
- from Times of India
There are many ways a corrupt politician or officer can avoid these complaints and investigations; the simple key thing one can do is pay them off, put them on your payroll. Money can spoil or enhance, ruin or bring glory too. With a simple transactions you can get a way with anything. Evident in many Bollywood ( indian ) movies.
"(Corruption )This will only hurt the country and there will be no benefit"
- Times of India
It will be hard for the people to even believe that action will be taken, on the corrupt officers and politicians that control most India's local economic trade. Not always will they be caught or even forwarded to the tops of the Corruption agencies in India.
When you said : " transparency and this will build faith of people on its government." By that time and perhaps the past , corruption was evident and known throughout the Indian government, even by our PM , who was rather upset that it was there and that the exposure that lost the governments credibility. It doesn't take a whole group to credibility but rather only one person to ruin the name of India. India was built on the sweat, blood and connections / power/ handwork. Yet along with these advancements arose Corruption. It is now part of the foundations of which India has built its emerging superpower upon. And for India to eradicate this problem , not only will it be hard, but it will also change the way Indian do business, rock it and put into jeopardy the work that has been done to make it so successful.
With polls like these:
Where from research it was stated that :
1. " A 2005 study conducted by Transparency International in India found that more than 62% of Indians had firsthand experience of paying bribes or influence peddling to get jobs done in public offices successfully. In its 2008 study, Transparency International reports about 40% of Indians had firsthand experience of paying bribes or using a contact to get a job done in public office. "
2. " As long as the caste system influences things there corruption will continue to be rampant"
3. " For years India has been corrupt and it doesn't seem like it's going to change anytime soon. Unfortunately, many of the citizens seem perfectly happy with this system and have just accepted it as part of their every day life. India will stay corrupt until both the citizens and leaders are on board with change."
As long as the Caste System and the ability for any man ( specifically criminals & mob/gang bosses ) to be allowed to participate in the works of the parliamentary and the control of the police forces, it will be merely impossible for corruption or anything to be done at all. That could not only rid corruption but also give back to communities and educate the young.
