The memorandum of our committee is as follows.
Corruption in India is one of the most heinous alarming threats that our economy has been battling with ever since the independence. From small time clerks to the high profile politicians, commissioners, police inspectors, traffic police, stock exchange brokers, military establishments, recruiters, sportsmen, judiciary and most of the government employees, corruption is seen and felt in every transaction from bottom of the chain till the top. Be it private sector or public sector, Indian people have a tendency of misusing the public position/power in their favor to fulfill their motives and gain personal benefits. Because of this greedy and dirty nature of minting money through corrupt procedure the private Indian companies captured the top spot in encouraging corruption when dealing with international clients in order to grab lucrative contracts. The growth of nation cripples when corrupt officials operate at powerful positions and corruption is the root cause of terror attacks, injustice, negligence and rape. The corruption status of India stands at 94th rank in the Global Corruption Index of 2012, a survey of 133 nations conducted by Transparency International (an anti-graft watchdog)?
No tough system to root out the corruption from our country?
There are numerous stringent laws like Indian Penal Code, 1860, The Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, Prevention of money Laundering Act etc. that have been framed to stop corruption but their proper implementation is missing? Our government is not preparing a tough system to root out the corruption from our country? The present C B I, CV C and A C B are inadequate machinery to prevent corruption so also the punishments for preventing corruption. When the civil society out cried for JAN LOKPAL the government passed the time to prolong the demand for a strong anti-corruption bill?
The general public must be made more aware and vigilant to unplug corruption from our nation.All the ministers should go through a screening like competency and honesty test before swearing in as Ministers of our country.No intervention by political leaders in the appointment and transfer of public servants. It leads to corruption and incompetency in public service. Many public servants from senior inspector of police to higher rank officers are very much confident in committing corruption as they are sponsored and protected by local politicians to ministers?All the financial / developmental projects should be well planned, implemented through transparency scanner and should not be delayed.Any kind of negligence or misuse of power by Public Servants should be treated as a crime under the Prevention of Corrupti
The implementation of laws should be stricter and increased transparency must be brought into action.
Totally independent nonpolitical setup like JAN LKOPAL is required to root out corruption. PASS THE JAN LOKPAL IN THIS WINTER SESSION OF THE PARLIAMENT.
Amend the punishment to death penalty under the Prevention of Corruption Act and confiscating the entire property of the corrupt can yield deterrent effect.
C B I, CV C and A C B should be made as independent separate cadre in central and states to prevent corruption.
All the Government contracts must be transparent and guarantee clause must be revoked as and when required.
Impart moral principles in schools, and introduction of stringent audits, accountability, effective tracking of corrupt individuals through citizen cards or tax id's will have an impact in tackling corruption.
The rural and poor citizens should be taught how to develop financially by them and the Banks should be asked to give credit to poor class without securities to start their own business so their next generation will not pay bribe to get government jobs and thus will not commit corruption to compensate the bribe amount they already paid.
The government should provide other infrastructures for the poor people to develop and should implement proper transparency system to reach the declared infrastructures/schemes to the needy people.
All the cases against women’s and other serious offences are to be decided within 1 year under fast track courts for the deterrent effect to criminals.
R T I Act.
Amended the R T I Act with imprisonment, contempt provision for not providing information to public and immediate implementation of penalty is required.
All application, appeals under R T I Act should be finalized within 120 days and the information related to life and liberty to be finalized within 144 hours.
Co operative sector and private sector should be included under the provision of R T I Act for more transparency.
Grant protection to R T I activists and whistleblowers on a phone call or on a letter for security or protection.
Multinational companies and other private companies, hospitals, insurance companies, builders and cellular service providers are quite often cheating the common public. More stringent consumer protection law is required to protect the interest of the people.
‘Not write off of debts’ is the permanent solution to farmer’s problem. The requirement of the day for the farmer iEs basic infrastructure, water, 50% discount to electricity, fertilizers, pesticides and best quality seeds. If these facilities are provided to farmers the result will be tremendous.
Lastly on the occasion of this Vehicle Rally, we, declare that ‘Combating corruption and injustice’ have been and will continue to remain as the top priorities for All India Mahiti Seva Samiti/MASS INDIA.
