Corruption in Road Construction

I have a stinking suscipicion that there may be massive corruption taking place in road and highway construction in India. I have been told the cost of road construction in India has gone up from 16 crores per km to 64 crores per km recently.

If anyone has evidence as to why this is the case and they can share the details transparently I am all ears. Otherwise, I want Transparency Intl or some activists to file RTI and investigate this. more

The best way to prosecute the bribe taker and the giver is as follows: to empower and enable ACB to to get the the occurrence of informed of the acquisition of such
while ensuring against misuse or abuse of powers by ACB officials : (1)Video secretly lavish expenditure on occasions like those mentioned above and use of Apps for transmitting the videos into the Computers of ACBs

ACB should proceed against the cases identified as above. more
