I think corruption doesn't depend on the organization but it depends on the people who are working in that organization.......whether the organization is government or private, until and unless people have integrity toward their organization corruption will exist..
Privatization will lead to decrease in Corruption. But then private Companies will only concentrate where there is opportunity of profit.But Govt. not only looks at profits but also provide services where there is not much profit. For example they provide health facilities in rural areas, if that is privatized then the private organization will not concentrate on each village.
I think corruption is more to do with with our culture and what we have seen over the years since childhood. What we see around us and what is depicted in media and movies. If we have to remove corruption then we have to make people accountable for their actions as well as put stringent checks. No doubt privatization will reduce corruption but it is not the ultimate solution
Privatisation of certain sectors like Oil/petroleum manufacturing, power generation, education will lead to increase in the prices which will directly affect the common man. The country is already suffering from inflation and affording the basic amenities will be difficult for a major class of Indians. Instead of privatization increased vigilance, supervision of documentation and auditing should be considered. In government sector, rules should be made stricter where an employee is responsible for answering his superiors as well as to the general public. Jan lokpal bill is good initiative in this direction.
Privatization cannot prevent corruption. Every country has government which makes policy, grants licenses and permissions. This power can not be handed over to private companies as this can be misused for their own advantage. Hence full privatization is not possible. In case of 2G scam, there are politicians as well as private executives from big companies involved in it. So corruption is a two way process and cannot be checked by privatization. Rather it can only be checked be preventing ones own self from indulging in it
privatization is not the answer to corruption. We have to make people accountable for their actions. Also the corruption at the lower level can be reduced by increasing their salaries and provide better living conditions. Salaries at the government jobs are less as compared to private jobs. With better salaries tendency to take bribe will reduce.
agree with kartik, but increasing salaries will not solve the problem.....its in the human nature....it cannot be satisfied, they will keep on yearning for more....we have to plug the loopholes in order to curb corruption..
