India is the most corrupt country in Asia, it is difficult to do government work without an identity

New Delhi: 47 per cent of Indians believe that corruption has increased in the country in the last 12 months, while 63 per cent believe that the government has done a satisfactory job in curbing corruption. 
Maybe this is where the 'feel good' factor comes to an end.

India has the highest corruption rate in Asia at 39 per cent. According to a survey report by Transparency International, 46 per cent of people in India had to use personal contacts to access public services. It was demanded from 50 per cent of the bribe givers, while 32 per cent of those who used personal contacts for public service admitted that they would not have been able to avail the public service if they had not done so.

After India, Cambodia ranks second with a corruption rate of 37 per cent and second and third with a rate of 30 per cent. The Maldives and Japan have the lowest (2 percent) corruption rates. Bribery rates in South Korea and Nepal are 10 per cent and 12 per cent, respectively. However, the research institute says that the government can take a number of steps to curb corruption in these countries as well.

Only 4% of people in Japan had to use personal contacts to use public service. The proportion was as high as 46 per cent in India and 36 per cent in Indonesia. In an earlier report, Transparency International had said that India was ranked 80th out of 180 countries in terms of corruption.

In its latest survey report 'Global Corruption Barometer-Asia', the organization surveyed 20,000 people in 17 countries from June to September. He was asked whether corruption in the country has increased or decreased in the last 12 months.

The use of public services mentioned in the report includes police, government hospitals, document services as well as other necessities.

Of the people covered under the survey in India, 42 per cent who came in contact with the police had to pay a bribe. Bribes also have to be paid in the country to get official documents like ID papers.

Apart from this, in India, personal contacts have to be used for police work as well as to get ID proof. The report also raises concerns that 63 per cent of people believe that there is a risk in speaking out against corruption.
