​Why India faces huge corruption?

​Why India faces huge corruption?

• Colonial Legacy of unchallenged authority and abritary use of power

• Asymmetry of power. Reduces societal pressure to conform to ethical behavior 

• Conscious choice of our economic policies which put citizen at the mercy of state – Monopoly – Corruption. 

• Over Centralization – Power is exercised more remotely – increasing the distance between authority and accountability. 

• Lack of Empowerment of citizens to hold those in authority. 

• Enforcement of rule of law, to ensure compliance. 

• Quality of Politics. If politics attracts and rewards men of integrity and honesty then corruption would be reduced, rather if if becomes a spot of attraction for undesirable and corrupt elements then Corruption become a norm.
