Transparency International ranks India 94th on Corruption Perception Index
This year, Transparency International's Corruption Perception Index (CPI) has placed India at 94th rank out of 176 nations. Thus, India has fallen into the range of the world's most corrupt nations along with Somalia, Sudan, North Korea, Afghanistan and Pakistan, etc.

WHILE DELIVERING annual Bhimsen Sachar Memorial Lecture on 'Virtue in Public Life' in Delhi on Friday Vice President Hamid Ansari remarked that India's poor ranking in global CPI was "distressing".

During his address, Ansari suggested the following fourfold approaches to treat corruption in India.

- Incorporating ethical training in norms in the legally enforceable Code of Ethics

- Establishing a mechanism of comprehensive protection of human rights

- Creating a legal framework and regulatory practices that enforce clash of interest rules

- Ensuring laws and procedures that forbid nepotism 

According to Business India Blog '', it is during a multi-thousand crore scam, that a tax-payer actually realizes the heartburn of being cheated from his valued contribution of funds towards the development and well-being of the nation. But, that’s what a scam, be it big or small, means – the act of swindling by some fraudulent scheme or action.

According to William Gould, UK's expert on Indian History, India's initial functioning as ‘Permit-Licence-Quota Raj’ - the linking of business interests with political brokers - led to corruption among Indian politicians.
