Citizens alone can stop this

how do we stop this practice unless citizens honestly want it to be removed. not sure if that is the case, as many want the system to prevail so that they get undue / out of turn advantage, all official requirements get short circuited, it is an easy route for those who don't believe in compliance with law of the land ... being law abiding is seen as being a fool, not smart, not practical, lack of enterprise, timid, ..... when such a perception prevails it is difficult to stop this. The enforcement officials on top of the list, it is like the fence eating the crop! more

Increase in Fines for traffic violations in Karnataka has led to increase in bribe collection in streets by Police. Two wheeler keeps Rs.200 in pocket and wants to drive without helmet, jump signals, park in prohibited areas and prefer to pay that Rs.200 whenever he or she is caught by police. Both are happy.. There was also news/rumor that the official receipt given by Police when you are caught and fined , was itself a duplicate - not linked to any foolproof System control. Something drastic change is required ...both in public attitude towards compliance & discipline and law administration -transparent & quick , but deterrent to commit offence. How & when ....??? huge question... more  
Don't understand what this discussion is about - how do we stop this practice - Stop what? more  
Thanks to I T & Systems, I tax assessments & refunds by and large is smothered; discretion and human intervention is being made minimal .....thus by and large corruption is minimal in most of the Low end cases.
In this background I personally feel If the rules are made simple & easily understandable and systems are transparent, with less discretionary powers, majority of the population will comply with the Law of the land.... more  
Punishment is not severe when caught. For eg. If the fine for driving in the wrong direction is increased to 500 or Rs 1000, they will automatically stop violating the rule. Now the fine is only 100 or so if caught and no one cares.
If the fine is increased they can put more cops on the street with that money. You can extend this to other violations. Why are we not doing this? It is under State control. more  
All systems in India promote corruption but it basically starts with the citizens who sell votes, services buy jobs etc etc. Then can we single out a state and or a city for clean up, definitely no.

Our conscience is weak, desires are selfish, lip service is cheap, many places of worship to seek forgivence from small corruption crimes etc etc.

Can we wish away all our culture & arrive at a clean India, Yes it will take ages so expect no miracles. We need to go thru the agony of suffering to wash away our dubious culture or ask the cinema industry to make a 3 hour movie showing miracles happen. Just a joke.

We citizens must improve & change.
