Evil of Corruption – Need to nip it in the bud – An Essay

A Brief Essay on the Evil of Corruption – Total Words 445

Corruption has become a major problem not only in India but in the whole world. But here we shall focus on Corruption in India. Corruption has become the order of the day in our country. IF you happen to go any Govt department and you have to get your work done, don’t think that your work shall be done quite easily, without paying any penny. You can get your work done if you pay some money to the concerned person.

In other words, you will have to pay bribe in the name of File Charges, Processing Fee or for Tea and snacks. The bigger the crocodile, the bigger fish it will seek. But who is the sufferer of this system? Rich people, poor people or middle man? Rich people are the least affected tribe as this system is their bastard offspring.

The poor people are also unaffected by this corrupt system as they have nothing to pay and therefore nothing to get done. The worst sufferer is the middle man. For everything he is crushed. Therefore a no of agitations were started in order to curb this problem of corruption. Great Social Activists like Anna Hazare, Arvind Kejriwal and team and Yog Guru Baba Ramdev led this fight against corruption. Even the 2014 Election was fought on the issue of corruption and the BJP came to power.

As far as corruption is concerned, the first award goes to politicians and the second one to bureaucrats. There is always the blind race to be involved in multi-crore Rupees scams. Some of the famous scams are – 2G Scam, Commonwealth Games Scam, Coal-gate Scam, Fodder Scam etc.

Now from the last some months, there is the dearth of such cases which is really a relief for the people of India. The Modi Govt has been successful in putting a great check on this problem of corruption. Even some International Agency which studies the level of corruption in the world has admitted that the Corruption level in India has gone down.

But there is much to be done in order to wipe out corruption. It has entered the fabric of our society. So there is the need to discourage the people who consider it their right to take bribe. Transparency is the need of the hour. Shady deals can be reduced to zero by making every important transaction online.

Strict punishment along with the confiscating the property of the guilty will do miracle. People must also listen to their conscience and avoid such hush money. Money earned through such illegal means can’t give the mental and spiritual satisfaction.

    Following was reported today , on NDTV web site :
    Expressing anguish over growing corruption in government machinery and corporations, the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court said that it's high time citizens come together to fight this menace and can refuse to pay taxes if this "hydra-headed monster" is not eliminated.
    If the same loot continues, taxpayers may resort to a 'non-cooperation movement' and refuse to pay taxes," observed Justice Chaudhari of Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court.
    "Do taxpayers pay the money to the government for such kind of acrobatics? To eradicate the cancer of corruption, the "hydra-headed monster," it's now high time for citizens to come together to tell their governments that they have had enough of this miasma of corruption," the High Court observed.
    Echoing public sentiment on the issue, the court observed "let the government as well as mandarins in corridors of power understand the excruciating pain and anguish of tax payers who have been suffering for over two decades in the state of Maharashtra. There is an onerous responsibility on those who govern to prove to taxpayers that eradication of corruption would not prove for them a forlorn hope."
    I request Hon Justice Shri Chaudhari to take suo moto cognizance and treat my following suggestion for total elimination of CORRUPTION , as a Public Interest Litigation ( PIL ) and direct the Union Government as follows :
    You shall ensure that , starting 01 Jan 2017 , all currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 , are made of suitable plastic material and are printed with a RFID sensor embedded into each
    You shall further ensure that each such currency note is assigned its unique IP V 6.0 address , which is also linked to its own unique Currency Note Number
    You shall further ensure that the current paper notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 , are withdrawn from the circulation from 01 July 2017 and considered illegal thereafter , making possession of such old paper notes , a non-bailable crime , punishable with a minimum imprisonment of 10 years
    You shall design , install and commission , a suitable technological platform whereby the RFID sensors embedded into the plastic currency notes , shall communicate their physical location to the web servers of the Enforcement Directorate / Income Tax Department / Anti Corruption Bureau / Serious Fraud Investigation Office / Central Vigilance Commission / Economic Offence Wing / Central Bureau of Investigation / Department of Revenue Intelligence etc , in those instances where the combined value of such currency notes , within an area of ONE SQUARE METER , exceed Rs ONE CRORE
    You shall also enact appropriate legislation under which the Enforcement Directorate shall have powers to cease and confiscate , any such accumulation of currency notes , which shall become the property of the State , notwithstanding the legitimate ownership of such seizure
    Dear Hon Justice Chaudhari,
    Even as I deeply share your anguish and sense of frustration , YOU have the power to cure the Cancer of Corruption , SINGLE HANDED
    There is no need to exhort people to stop paying taxes
    Let this PIL be your JUDICIAL ACTIVISM to defeat the POLITICAL CYNICISM
    Dear Ram Jethmalani / Subramaniam Swamy / Prashant Bhushan :
    Will you please fight this PIL on my behalf ?
