Policy Commission just organised a survey in 20 states of India to find out the most corrupted state in India because of the overgrowing corruption in the country. The survey helped a lot in seeing deep down through the big hole of corruption and made us know about the insights and the most common reasons of its nationwide spread. Through this survey, it has been found out that Himachal Pradesh is the least corrupted state throughout the India. Along with Himachal Pradesh, Kerala and Chhattisgarh are also less corrupt as compared to the other states in the country. According to the survey, the people who had been negotiated in this context, among those, only 3% had to pay the bribe to get the governmental or other work done.
Policy Commission has declared Karnataka as the most corrupted state in this survey. In the context of corruption, after Karnataka, are the following cities such as, Andhra Pradesh on 2nd, Tamil Nadu on 3rd, Maharashtra on 4th, Jammu and Kashmir on 5th and the last and the most corrupted city amongst all, Punjab. 20 states were consulted, consisting of 3 thousand people of all urban and rural areas of the respective states. During the survey, people were asked that, “How many of them have bribed for getting the governmental work done in the past 1 year?” . The survey showed that in the whole nation, nearly one-third of people had to bribe at least once. It clearly shows that the situation of Himachal Pradesh is much better as compared to the other states.
In the year 2005 also a survey of this kind was organised to know about the roots of the corruption. In that survey, it was regarded by 53% of the people that they were forced to pay bribes by agents or the government officials themselves. As compared to the 2005, Corruption rate seems to be lower. The reports have estimated that in the year 2017, about 10 government departments of 20 states have paid Rs. 6,350 crore as bribe, wherein, in the year 2005, the bribe amount was estimated to be of Rs. 20,500 crore.
Most of the people that were included in the survey do believe that the move of “Notebandi” that has been taken by the government at the end of the year 2016 has caused the downfall of the Corruption rate in India.
