Corruption in Govt postings and transfers – Root Causes

1. Officers who have the power of postings and transfers in their hand, misuse their authority
2. People don’t mind paying bribes for promotions/transfers as they know that they will make enough by taking bribes once they get the seat
3. Honest employees are scared of raising their voices against seniors
4. Businesses pay up to keep the officers faithful to them in their position so that the work/permissions of the businesses are not hampered
5. Some employees don’t want to transfer just for the sake of their family
6. Getting a fake medical certificate is very easy in India
7. Influential middle men make posting/transfer their business so that they could earn a good commission
8. Bad postings are sometimes used as a punishment
9. The process of transfers and postings is very opaque
10. Posting of officers/inspectors at centres, which are considered a boon for extra income, are unofficially tendered and those offering the highest amount is considered most suitable for such postings
11. Transfers & postings is a lucrative industry for politicians and senior bureaucrats which does not need any investment and has no risk
12. High profile postings have political involvement and a high price to be paid for getting a suitable posting.

This is very common and part of favouritism. more  
Railway officials knnow very well the consequences of NO CANCELLATION OF CONFIRMED TATKAL TICKETS. The bribe collected by TTE is shared by many and hence TTE is boldly continuing the illegal sale. Even the ordinary wait-listed passengers are not allowed to board the reserved bogies. Every one knows the possible number of confirmed ticket holders not undertaking the planned journey. Again the TTE will sell those vacant berths to passengers with open ticket at the cost of poor wait-listed passengers. Our pointing out the illegal activities going on unchecked in IR is simply wate of time and energy because the Railway Minister seems to be helpless under the strong influence of various unions.. If only PM minds and takes it seriously, things may improve instantly. more  
Transfer & postings is a lucrative business where everyone participates willingly or otherwise. This starts right at the top from the Minister's office where rates are fixed. Words go out to those willing to pay the right price. Even bidding takes place and highest bidder gets the post. It is so simple as that and known to everyone - as it is so covenient no one complains and CVC turns a Nelson eye. more  
I think their is some law that a particular person in a post can stay over it for 3 years only and after completion of 3 years he is transferred. It must be strictly implemented more  
Corruption and Govt officers are intimate bedfellow. Like turbulent river, it starts eroding from top and ultimately ruins the entire system. Following may be the main reason of corruption in public hierarchy: • Inadequate and faulty system of monitoring lifestyle and wealth generation –presently except submission of asset declaration that too in a sealed cover, there is hardly any system of monitoring of life style and asset creation of a govt officer. In every district there must be an independent agency to monitor the lifestyle and yearly asset creation. Instead submitting asset declaration in confidential it should be open and a copy must be in the public domain of district monitoring agency/state and central vigilance commission so that there is both public and administrative monitoring of disproportionate asset cases. • Wide spread corruption in recruitment/promotion/transfer –No one should expect a honest service from an officer appointed through bribe. To realize the investment such persons further invest to get a chair where bribe is more and corruption circle go on widening. -All class –I appointment/promotion/transfer should be through independent commission with representative of SVC/CVC. • Early disposal and stringent punishment for all corruption cases –Weak law and lengthy procedure just encourage corrupts. There must be special courts to try the anticorruption cases within maximum six months time. Punishment should be extended up to life RI with compulsory seizing of all disproportionate assets. more
