The successful completion of any task would be incomplete without mentioning the people who have made it possible. So it`s with the gratitude that I acknowledge the help, which crowned my efforts with success.
Life is a process of accumulating and discharging debts, not all of those can be measured. We cannot hope to discharge them with simple words of thanks but we can certainly acknowledge them.
I owe my gratitude to Mr.Sanjay Jindal Lect. LSM for his constant guidance and support.
I would also like to thank the various department officials and staff who not only provided me with required opportunity but also extended their valuable time and I have no words to express my gratefulness to them.
Last but not the least I am very much indebted to my family and friends for their warm encouragement and moral support in conducting this project work.

As per perception of the people, Police is the most corrupt sector. However, the impact of corruption is on a much larger scale in the Health and Education Sectors involving far greater number of population. Corruption in Health and Education deprives people of these basic facilities and affects human development. These are, co-relates of Human Development. Cross country data of 102 countries show that there is a high rank correlation (0.788) as well as coefficient of correlation (0.766) between Human Development Index (HDI) and Corruption Perception Index (CPI). Countries with low scores in CPI have low HDI. Many avenues of corruption cannot be dealt with under the Prevention of Corruption Act,1988.
