Today, Corruption is a great problem, a menace and of course a burning issue. It?s termed as an evil and a curse. In practical life, political corruption is the abuse of public power, office or resources by government officials or employees for personal gain. Systemic corruption is the complete subversion of a political or economic system. Police corruption is a specific form of police misconduct. Corporate corruption is to incorporate criminality and the abuse of power by officials in corporate matters. In India, political and bureaucratic corruption are major concerns. India is ranked 87th out of 178 countries, in a global survey. Recently, there has been an upsurge in land protests against corruption. There were widespread public agitations and movements, led by social activists, against corruption and for the return of illegal wealth stashed by politicians and businessmen in foreign banks over the past six decades, since independence.
