See one interesting list of corruption in Indian states compile by Transparency International. Some of the entries in the "moderately corrupt" list looks a bit funny

  • Jammu and Kashmir
  • Madhya Pradesh
  • Uttar Pradesh

Very highly corrupt:
  • Karnataka
  • Rajastan
  • Tamilnadu

Highly Corrupt:
  • Chhatsigarh
  • Delhi
  • Kerala
  • Gujarat
  • Jharkhand
  • Orissa

Moderately corrupt:
  • Maharashtra
  • Himachal Pradesh
  • Haryana
  • Punjab
  • Uttarakhand
  • Andhra Pradesh
  • West Bengal

Whats funny in the moderately corrupt list?

If you have lived in "alarmingly and very high" corrupt states, you would realize that other states are much much better off.

Incidentally, you can also tell the corruption level of the state by checking out the infrastructure like roads, drainage, electricity, water etc.
And by seeing how much of transparent cash is flowing in to their economies (investments).

I smell a rat in that list.

Correct me if I am wrong but, none of the alarmingly and very highly corrupt states are ruled by the largest party in the currently ruling coalition Central Government. In the highly corrupt states, all states other then Delhi are again not ruled by that party.

Whatever it is, You can't say that Bihar shouldn't be in the Alarmingly corrupt states list

For me, the list looks very much sensible.

"It had randomly selected a sample of 22,728 BPL (below poverty line that is poorest) households from all across the country and they were surveyed to ascertain which were the most unhappy and extorted lot and in which state."

Such surveys are useful for one single purpose - The Trash Can. Opinions of 22K families across the country is peanuts when you have millions of households.

Union territories would be in moderately corrupt list.
I live in Punjab & see people battling corruption everywhere, according to me, Punjab should be higher up the order.

Instead of breaking it into states, it should be one country and one entry...into the alarmingly corrupt field. lol

I don't doubt the status of Karnataka on that list even a little. Nothing gets done in this state without bribe at any level.

Last week this list was in TOI front page in the local paper. They had even categories by department. In Karnataka, Police was the most corrupt, followed by Land registration, and Education department was the last.

Responding to report, the home minister said that the police should follow his lead and become very clean like him. Actually they are following his lead...

Ahh, great to see city dwellers "dissing" out such surveys ...

What is corrupt is corrupt, whether being under ruling central govt party or opposition.
And pray Punjab is more corrupt than Bihar or UP/MP - and that is not what is result of this survey, hence the survey is wrong?

Gimme a break.

Check the above site which gives some indication of bribery & rates for different things in Karnataka!
Based on experience, Karnataka is a very corrupt state. Don't know where it stands in the hierarchy though

I find it difficult to believe that Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are more corrupt than many backward states. But then, an educated city dweller's life is much easier than the poor who are at the mercy of netas and babus.
