To identify the corrupt government. Officials resort to discreet surveillance, surveillance, sources of information and complaints received from various sources, sometimes even anonymous and pseudonymous complaints with specific information. This is followed by surveillance or specific consultations.

Q4. What kind of surveillance is carried out on the departments?

When we receive information about corrupt practices prevalent in any government. dept. or against any official in particular, we mount surveillance on their activities to collect the evidence that links the suspect to the crime. The surveillance is mounted discreetly. For that we visit the office of the alleged official and observe his conduct in secret. We also speak casually with the staff, the public, and those whose presence in that office seems dubious without revealing our identity. After collecting enough evidence, which could crystallize the information, a report is prepared and further actions are taken.

Q5. How long does it take to present the case in criminal court and what is the procedure followed for it?

After the registration of the case under the POC Law, this unit collects all the relevant evidences such as the Forensic Science Laboratory. Report, sanction of the accusation, statements of witnesses against the delinquent official and after obtaining the legal opinion of the Prosecutor's Office. , the accused official is charged with a judicial verdict. There is no prescribed time frame for the completion of the investigation of the case, but it depends on the nature of the crime, the availability of related records from the department in question, and the cooperation of witnesses. A hands in the dough cheating case can be finalized in three months if the prosecution's sanction is received on time. Investigating corruption cases takes much longer.

Prosecutors who present anti-corruption cases in honorable courts during trial are working under Dte. of Prosecution, which is an independent department of the Delhi government. Even at the Hon'ble High Court, our cases are brought by the permanent government attorney, who also functions independently.

As a result, we have registered 11 cases against resellers including 08 cases in the transportation authorities, 2 cases in the Department of Finance and one case in the department of education. What's more,

Q10. How does the surveillance department handle corruption cases in its own department?

When placing officers in the Vigilance / Anti-Corruption Branch, care should be taken to shortlist only those officers who have impeccable service records.

One of the most common questions I faced as an IPS officer was: "Why is there so much corruption in India and why can't we eradicate it?"

If there was a simple magic bullet someone probably would have implemented it. We can only kill this monster with a thousand cuts.

So here are some steps to combat corruption:

  1. Eliminate the ability of officials to extort money through delay and obstruction:
    1. Does a corrupt government official necessarily have to do something wrong to make money? No. They can just delay and obstruct, and the affected party will be forced to show up with tickets. I

One of the most common questions I faced as an IPS officer was: "Why is there so much corruption in India and why can't we eradicate it?"

If there was a simple magic bullet someone probably would have implemented it. We can only kill this monster with a thousand cuts.

So here are some steps to combat corruption:

  1. Eliminate the ability of officials to extort money through delay and obstruction:
    1. Does a corrupt government official necessarily have to do something wrong to make money? No. They can just delay and obstruct, and the affected party will be forced to show up with tickets. In fact, they don't even have to delay, it is enough to create apprehension.
    2. Let's say I'm a real estate developer and I need government approval before starting construction. I have arranged the financing, I have bought a piece of land and I am ready. Each day of delays causes a loss of thousands or lacs of rupees. Now the Municipal Corporation or the Fire Force or any other babu department has to stay put and I will have to bribe.
    3. Solution: Put the burden of timely action on the government, not the citizen.
    4. For example, if the government says I have to get approval from the Fire Department, make it mandatory that it be given in 30 or 45 days. If not, I can assume permission is given. It will not be my responsibility to search the file and obtain an order. This is pure common sense and decency, which has no place in our system.
  2. Reduce public spending
    1. When I was a kid, I lost my pencil at school literally every day. So what should my mom or dad have done? Cut the pencil in half before giving it to me!
    2. The government also has the ability to lose money. So you should spend less! Whenever the government spends, for example, on the construction of roads and infrastructure, welfare plans, purchases (from uniforms to fodder and defense equipment), the money is diverted.
    3. But how can the government cut spending? For starters, do not do commercial activity. Does the government have to sell rice and wheat in the current era? Not enough grocery stores? Many states have Civil Supply Corporations that spend hundreds of millions of rupees each year to purchase things. Why? The answer will always be "poor people." If you want to sell cheap rice to the underprivileged, why not give them subsidy coupons? Let people buy from wherever they want.
    4. As long as the government continues to operate buses, hotels, and everything under the sun, people will loot, politicians will rejoice, and citizens will receive slogans on eradicating poverty. If the government wants, it can find smart ways to administer most welfare plans without creating another layer of bureaucracy. But that doesn't suit anyone.
  3. Facilitate the reporting of corruption
    1. Let's say if you are a victim of corruption (say at the RTO office), you should file a complaint with the Oversight Department. I don't want to disrespect you, but how many people want to take on one more government department? Another cocky arrogant official? I would hate to do that.
    2. What if there was a courteous and professional non-governmental agency that you could report the matter to? For example, the way TCS performs passport document verification, why can't it be outsourced as well?
    3. When I applied for the passport a few years ago in Mumbai, the document verification carried out by TCS was incredibly professional. After that, the babus government verification was a 5 hour nightmare, which I won't even describe. Would anyone ever want to speak to such officials?
  4. Create transparency, eliminate arbitrariness
    1. Why do thieves operate at night? Because nobody is looking. Corruption also happens when no one is looking.
    2. Use technology and shed light on everything. For example, in each office put an electronic board outside that has all the important (non-sensitive) information about the things in the office. Also, put it on a website.
    3. Example: Contractors doing government work must continue to meet with officials to get their pay released. If officials are corrupt, they can earn money for even something so simple. If you publish a list of people whose payment is due and the rules for selecting the person whose payment will be published next, that corruption will be reduced.
  5. Nazi hunting strategy
    1. After World War II, Jewish groups gave rewards for hunting Nazis. Similarly, provide monetary incentives for people to find out and help prosecute corruption. Otherwise, why would they risk earning someone else's enmity?
    2. If someone leads to prosecution and recovery of government funds, give him 20% as an incentive. This is not an easy thing to implement, but it is worth thinking about.
  6. Execution and punishment.
    1. Prosecution under the Prevention of Corruption Act is slow and convictions are very few. Under criminal law, the evidence required to convict someone is very high. People hesitate to come forward to complain for fear of retaliation.
    2. As tough and impractical as it may seem, at least for certain departments prone to a high degree of corruption, make it a contractual assignment with a 5-year term limit. Only renew the contract if the person has a stellar reputation. The burden falls on the employee to show good character, and not on the government to prove wrongdoing.
  7. Financing of political parties and elections
    1. Political parties need money, so voluntary donations are often insufficient. So they systematically divert government contracts, money for appointments and positions, and influence peddling in general.
    2. While funding won't make them Mr. Clean overnight, at least one excuse would go away.

All of the above steps will help up to a point, but unless there is collective disapproval of corruption, real change will not be easy.

If there is one thing that unites all Indians, it is our declared hatred of corruption. But at the same time, we are swimming in corruption. How is that possible?

Do we really care? Or do we worry only when we are on the receiving end?

I think the answer is pretty obvious.

I think you are wrong to say that, perceptions are built based on what we hear from the media or from the surroundings, and I must say that they are all mostly framed.

XYZ's neighbor may tell me that XYZ's family is not good, but we can only be sure when we live their lives.

Based on my knowledge and I work for the same department, I must say that it is one of the least corrupt departments when compared to other disabled people and to the central / state government department in the construction industry.

Our manuals and specifications impose tremendous controls that prevent us from thinking wrong.

I think you are wrong to say that, perceptions are built based on what we hear from the media or from the surroundings, and I must say that they are all mostly framed.

XYZ's neighbor may tell me that XYZ's family is not good, but we can only be sure when we live their lives.

Based on my knowledge and I work for the same department, I must say that it is one of the least corrupt departments when compared to other disabled people and to the central / state government department in the construction industry.

Our manuals and specifications impose huge controls that prevent us from thinking wrong. Also, our publication is not a bit permanent, which reduces the possibility of corrupt practices. We deliver quality work at a lower construction cost.

If today after 160 years we are not able to build our image, it is also because of our dedication, sacrifice.

CPWD has been restricted by government policies and today our reach is limited to a few construction areas. NBCC, BSNL, RITES and many others are parallel to us, the works have been snatched. works performed by incompetent.

Would you like to be operated by a medical assistant or a doctor when there is some important operation? You may be right to think that it is a breakthrough monopoly of CPWD. But at the same time, he should also see it as a planned murder of us in the name of corruption.

I will not deny that CPWD is not corrupt, but to say that it is the most corrupt will be unfair. We all go through the most rigorous examination for an engineer but we are expected to do managerial work here, and if we are missing somewhere today to break the image of the most corrupt department it is because engineers are not good at business and have been bad in advertising our achievements.

I CAN BE YOURSELF, BUT I HAVE TRIED TO BE NEUTRAL AND TO KNOW YOU WITH REALITY.

How about a tongue-in-cheek photo and story?

In Indonesia, when the Democratic party ruled in 2004-2014. They made an advertising video on corruption in 2009. The video is about their top officials "SAY NO TO CORRUPTION." It has been broadcast in the media to make people believe that the government takes the problem of corruption seriously.

TIDAK means NO in Indonesian language

Katakan Tidak Pada Korupsi = Say no to corruption

As you can see, there are 5 people in the video, in the middle is our sixth president (Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono) and around him are the Senior Officials of the Democratic Party.

Guess what? 3

Katakan Tidak Pada Korupsi = Say no to corruption

As you can see, there are 5 people in the video, in the middle is our sixth president (Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono) and around him are the Senior Officials of the Democratic Party.

Guess what? 3 of the people in the video were caught in acts of corruption.

  1. Angelina sondakh

This beautiful lady is a former Miss Indonesia in 2001.

The corruption case concerns the construction of houses for Indonesian athletes. It has been shown to corrupt government money by bribing Rs 2,500 million ($ 200,000) and $ 1.2 million.

Pretty but sad ... She cried because they found her guilty.

  1. Andi Mallarangeng

He was Minister of State for Youth and Sports. He was caught in the same case, the Sports Athletes Homes Building.

In Indonesia, if you are a corrupter, you must wear the famous orange jacket. It has been shown that he received 2 billion rupees ($ 155,000) and $ 550,000.

  1. Anas Urbaningrum

He is the chairman of the Democratic Party when the same corruption is suspected, The Homes for Athletes Corruption. Crazier for him to deny the corruption claim and say that if he is proven corrupt, people can hang him in Jakarta's Monas National Monument.

He keeps denying, but in the end, he wears the famous orange jacket.

So what is this Athlete Home Corruption?

The government wants a concentration camp for athletes. A place where they can live and train intensely, just focus on your goal.

Very good project. But in the end the corruption stopped and destroyed it midway.

Now it was just a waste of money.

It is ironic to see that politicians have to make a video on Say No to Corruption, but they do it themselves.

You can contact the Anti-Corruption Office (ACB) in your state. You can find their phone numbers and addresses online.

You can also contact senior police officers who will help you.

If all that doesn't work, make a video of the corrupt cop and share it with the media.

The media are the last option and they will surely help you.

Thanks.

India against bad police

Seemingly better, but not enough for society as a whole to feel it.
However, on an individual level, people have cases of rejection in bribery or a slightly stricter penal department to share.
There are still issues of general public interest to be resolved, but that, of course, takes a long time. After all, there is a lot to do.
However, the change is certainly felt in some way.
Give the government more time and wait for changes for the better. :)

This is because the HC of Delhi knows the law better than the Modi government. Those who think that HC does not slap the Center, should read Center in SC against HC's order in the notice

What is the government of India doing against corruption? ok ………….

Govt. of India appointing Narender Modi as Prime Minister

Cbi but the government will not do that. Either way, nothing will come out, the investigation will last 10 years. So only if someone takes the case to court
