Corruption in Building Approvals

Recent attempt to start a residential building for individual use in Coimbatore suburbs revealed that approximately 25% of the total budget had to be spent on building approval process alone, a major portion of which goes as bribe given to the concerned authorities.

Considering that house is an important part of our lives, and symbol of dignity and security in our present society, corruption in this field becomes a huge burden for a middle class family.

Also, real estate under construction becoming an important area of development, employment, and economy in our nation addressing this issue will be beneficial in many ways.

Hope the government takes these views into account. more

Corruption is a malaise that must be eradicated and it is rampant in all State Government Departments eg. Revenue, Registration, Police , Transport etc. It is inconceivable that even if governance at National level and State Level is manned by people with integrity , it will in anyway change the day to day life of average Citizen. At best it will inhibit higher level corruption which has no direct relevance to common man's ordeals. There appears to be only one way to reduce (not completely eradicate) is setting up of Corruption Tribunals at District level for summary disposal with only one appeal to Governor/ President's office. Multiple levels of appeals give advantage to Dishonest people in diluting if not perverting the case. Summary disposals must occur within 7 working days of catching the dishonest and appeal must be disposed off within 30 days of receipt at Governor's office. Resting the responsibility of cleansing the system on heads of state/ center will negate the influence exerted through local politicians. I believe Indians are timid and not adventurous and once the system put in place starts functioning, Corruption will automatically vanish. The problem today is there is no fear of law. more  
It is the inefficiency of anti-corruption department. Even they catch hold of some culprits, the matter goes to Court. By the time it is disposed, another 20 years passes on. The value of money, by that time is not visible and seems negligible. more  
Many of us are not aware that there is huge corruption in private consultancy organisations even higher than Govt deptt. more  
The best way to eradicate corruption in this main area is to remove all Government Officials taking salary and taking a fat sum as bribe. Put those as commission agents and pay them the commission and get rid off this parasites including the EB connection givers. The commission should be what we have to pay as fees to the government. You will find things will change. more  
OCI students seem to have hassles being eligible for state level counselling after writing NEET and also for Engineering admissions. This is injustice. Please escalate to government authorities. This is very urgent. more
