How to: Top 10 Real ways to Fight Corruption in India

If you think I was going to suggest a fast unto ‘death’  😀 Of course not coz fasts just don’t work. But today we are going to bring to you top 10 ways you can avoid paying a bribe and take action against corruption. First up,


Top 5 ways that have worked for others and are likely to work for you:

  1. The Janagraha initiative is fast emerging out to be the ace in India’s fight against corruption. The idea is simple yet powerful and has a proven track record. The concept has also inspired many clones in China.
  2. Project Vigeye: Central Vigilance Commission started this project a while back to provide citizens easy ways to file corruption complaints.
  3. Zero Currency Note: What does the note do? It is simply a way to say No to the official demanding the bribe without fearing an encounter with them.
  4. Right to Information Act: RTI is the most powerful tool to fight corruption. Just file an RTI appeal and demand an reason for the non-compliance to your request. The government official will most probably, give you a flimsy reason which you can leverage against him by using other methods mentioned here.
  5. Hire people to Fight on your behalf at a Fraction of the cost: This is an amazing concept and i won’t tell you more about this. Just watch the video and bless the guy who came up with this idea. :)
