Corruption is not a new phenomenon in India. It has been prevalent in society since ancient times. History reveals that it was present even in the Mauryan period. Great scholar Kautilya mentions the pressure of forty types of corruption in his contemporary society. It was practised even in Mughal and Sultanate period. When the East India Company took control of the country, corruption reached new height. Corruption in India has become so common that people now are averse to thinking of public life with it.
Corruption has been defined variously by scholars. But the simple meaning of it is that corruption implies perversion of morality, integrity, character or duty out of mercenary motives, i.e. bribery, without any regard to honour, right and justice. In other words, undue favour for any one for some monetary or other gains is corruption. Simultaneously, depriving the genuinely deserving from their right or privilege is also a corrupt practice. Shrinking from one’s duty or dereliction of duty are also forms of corruption. Besides, thefts, wastage of public property constitute varieties of corruption. Dishonesty, exploitation, malpractices, scams and scandals are various manifestations of corruption.
Corruption is not a uniquely Indian phenomenon. It is witnessed all over the world in developing as well as developed countries. It has spread its tentacles in every sphere of life, namely business administration, politics, officialdom, and services. In fact, there is hardly any sector which can be characterised for not being infected with the vices of corruption. Corruption is rampant in every segment and every section of society, barring the social status attached to it. Nobody can be considered free from corruption from a high ranking officer.

To root out the evil of corruption from society, we need to make a comprehensive code of conduct for politicians, legislatures, bureaucrats, and such code should be strictly enforced. Judiciary should be given more independence and initiatives on issues related to corruption. Special courts should be set-up to take up such issues and speedy trial is to be promoted. Law and order machinery should be allowed to work without political interference. NGOs and media should come forward to create awareness against corruption in society and educate people to combat this evil. Only then we would be able to save our system from being collapsed.

In this post I have discussed about the corruption mainly in politics and its impact on social life.
Corruption is the main problem of many Asian countries specially India. The specific meaning of the word corruption is misusing one's office for a private benefit. It involves both the monetary and non-monetary benefit. In simple words every person of higher level or lower level person are mostly corrupted, they used to do un-official work for the sake of money. This is all about the meaning of corruption.
Corruption ( A big problem)
Corruption is now a global problem common in both developed and developing countries. A corrupted person never think about the country. The main work for the corrupted persons is to increase their earnings through un authorized work.
The most obvious effect of political corruption is a loss of public esteem for politicians and political life.The impact on business and the wider society is also terrible. Business gains some more cash credits as they are corrupted but these things occur only on the initial stage. Corruption is also called diseases in India. This disease increases risks and costs to business, damages investor confidence and stops economic growth of the business.
India is famous allover the world just because of its culture and the great India cricket team. Corruption in India is the main result of poverty in India and also the poor growth of India.
All the leaders of India are mostly corrupted. They used to do un-authorized work for their own development.
Every politicians are having hundreds of crores of money but their income is not more that of Rs 50,000 . They got all that money from where, this is the main question that arises in mind of most of the Indians but they are not authorized to do anything. This is the result of poor government in India.
A major corruption in Common wealth games Delhi
It is really very shameful for all the Indians that there was not proper arrangements for the foreign players in the Common wealth games in Delhi.
Not only this the courts and play grounds were also not fully ready for the matches. This is the result of Indian corruption. When there was a situation of flood in Delhi, the walls of stadiums were also having lines in that which makes a bad atmosphere not specially in Delhi but in the whole country. The roads, bridges were having big pits and holes in that makes the country feel shameful. The contractors, politicians and engineers are responsible for all the misfortune happened.
There were also not proper arrangements in stadiums, all the rooms for foreign and Indians players were not at all good.
Government gave Rs 250,0000000 /- for the proper development of stadiums but only few crore were used to do so and the remaining money goes in the pocket of politicians,contractors and engineers.
Steps to remove corruption from India permanently
1. All the politicians should realize what their main duty is.
2.Black money should be sealed by the government.
3.Youths should make a revolution against it.
4.Punishment should be given to all the corrupt person in India.
Corruption is the main bacteria who is eating our country continuously
