How to end corruption
Prompt justice, prompt punishment to guilty, prompt registration of FIR in Thana and prompt action by police personnel, prompt movement of files in all offices, election and recall of public representatives and so on…. All these are possible only when the culture of flattery and yesmanism is stopped completely.

Honest workers have always fear of wrong posting and rejection in promotion processes if they do not flatter their bosses or bribe them.. Honest person fear in knocking the door of police station or court because everyone knows that police and court people torture all who do not pay them their fees called as bribe. People fear in raising voice against injustice because they know there is none to support him in the system. As long as honest, loyal and devoted workers have fear of repercussion or rejection in promotion or posting at critical places in their mind, as long as rules are not made completely transparent, non discriminatory and linked with seniority and as long as justice is delayed in judiciary we cannot imagine of end of corruption from India, we cannot dream of reducing the proportion of corrupt practitioner among government officers.

Rules and laws should be made so much stringent and effective that it leaves no scope for whimsical decisions, arbitrary promotions and arbitrary posting in any offices. New rules should be framed to ensure punishment to top officers who take arbitrary and discriminatory decisions .Everyone should have in mind that punitive action will invariably be taken against guilty person quickly without any bias. Only then culture of flattery will end and a reign of justice will prevail and the proposal of Right to Recall will be successful.

Producing fear of quick and severe punishment in the mind of evil doers is the only key to reduce rate of bribe or corruption in government department Workers in general of all officers, departments, Thanas, courts PSUs, PSBs will perform honestly, sincerely and in the best possible manner only when there is a fear of action for poor or non performance.

Why not General Manager, Executive Directors and CMD of banks and financial institutes are suspended till date even though they were found to be involved in Bribe based lending scam exposed by CBI. Why assets of such corrupt officer has not been seized till date. Why has CBI not raided their house and seized their properties.

On 24th November CBI charged several high rank officers of bank and LIC housing Finance Company of lending huge money to real estate builders after taking bribe. Several banks have been charged of wrong lending in case of 2G spectrum related case .Even Supreme Court has passed adverse remarks against bankers. When top bankers are corrupt there is no doubt that a culture of corruption is wide spread in that bank in particular and in PSU banks in general. Still RBI, Ministry of Finance and government of India as a whole is silent on taking punitive action. Had it a been a clerk or a simple officer, top management could have suspended him immediately.

Is Finance Minister not responsible and accountable for selection of wrong and corrupt ED and CMD for a bank? Why General Manager rank officers alleged to be involved in corruption and charged by CBI are allowed to continue in their post or even promoted is a million dollar question. It speaks how much deep rooted is the cancer of corruption in the banking system in particular and in government departments in general.

Banks ask for equivalent or even more amount of collateral security and guarantors even for financing a few lac or a few crores of rupees to common business men. But they thought it safe to finance thousands of crores of rupees to telecom companies. Why?

If there is a will there is a way

If CVC really desires that corruption should end I suggest that CVC should immediately carry out raids on the premises of all...
