Subject: Corruption in India

Dear Sir/Maam

Through the columns of your national daily. I would like to express that our society is facing a serious problem of corruption that has threatened the basic foundations of our society. Corruption in India is present in almost all walks of life.

Corruption degrades the quality of the services and also ruins the life of the common man. Unlike developed coun-tries, corruption is at high in India.

The causes of corruption in India are many and quite complex. Low pay scales/wages, low job opportunities, lack of strict and fast punishments, lack of transparency in affairs and deals, lack of accountability and encouragement of unhealthy competition are some of the reasons that encourage corruption.

The result is an unstable environment, unequal distribution of resources and power, low confidence of investors, etc.
We should counter corruption with stricter measures and stringent laws, including imprisonment and fines. Black money should be retrieved and used for the betterment of society.

Other methods of eradicating corruption include: better salary in government jobs, in crease in the number of workers, laws to dismiss defaulters from service, keeping transactions online and providing a bill for every purchase, installing cameras in all government and private institutions and speeding up the work process in government institutions.

Through this letter, I would like to appeal to the citizens of the country to wake up and fight for a society which is free from the evils of corruption.

Corruption is increasing to such a level that India has been ranked among the top 20 corrupt countries in the world.

Thanking you
Mukesh Sharma
