Couruption a partial solution
I do not think appointing a private agenciy will help. Instead of paying a bribe directly to the Government official you will pay a fee to the private agency who will pass on a fixed fee to the Government official
Only solution is the Government bring or introduce a method
where in one should report corruption or harassment .
This should be on line and a reference Number of the complaint be generated.
Thereafter say within 20 working days if no help is accorded
It should be published in the official news of the Government and both the investigating agency and the Government official should be suspended pending an enquiry
However I do not see a 100% solution but will reduce the corrupt practice. more
Evrn private sector persons ask for bribes based on situation, namely third party inspectors of insurance companies.
Our society had a fire Insurance policy with ICICI Lombard. We had a fire in our electrical room. After several calls to ICICI LOMBARD and submitting all necessary documents immediately , within two days, they never bothered to take next step. After a month when we contacted concerned officer he told us he had misplaced all documents. Since major wiring were destroyed affecting the electricity supply to several flats and water supply pump, we had the wiring done on emergency basis so there was no scope of showing destruction through photos once again. With several follow-ups, after two months, Icici told us there will be third party inspection. After we showed all the areas of destruction etc, while preparing his report, he expected a bribe, since we did not agree, he sanctioned a very small amount and we got only about Rs.4000/_ , while society spent Rs.30,000/-. The inspector valued the burnt wires at Rs.10000/-, which in reality would not have fetched more than Rs.500/_. more
While i fully agree with the way suggested by Mr. Mahesh Patel, yet, why in the first instance, we disobey the law and end up paying penalty or bribe. The root cause of the problem is we always want a faster way to get out of the mess that we ourselves created. more
The corrupts are fully equipped with money,muscle power and political influence. It has been observed that any one who dare to complaint against a corrupt will not see the day of light and his/her complaint will be lost in dust. Out sourcing is one of the best method as has been proved by passport issue authorities. A passport which used to take months and months is now issued within few days. I am sure one will not mind paying little extra provided he gets due services within time frame without hassle. more
How many people will report the corruption. There will be questions of proof and also possibilities of threat from the corrupt people. Introducing licences private agencies is a possible solution. We have to remember that we have to have less governemnt and more governance. more
On one side, we are saying govt. officials are corrupt and, on the othe side, we are saying we should introduce more government machinery to combat it.That is truly ironic and unlikely to work. Suggest use the model used to issue passports by private agency except use many private agencies so a sense of competition is introduced. When government officials do something, the service is not free as taxpayers have to pay their salaries and office set up. more
