"The fear of God is gone, and so is the fear of law. Few are caught and fewer convicted-of every 100 corruption related crimes. All this has made corruption a 'high-profit low-risk business'".

D.R. Karthikeyan, Former director of the CBI and DG, National Human Rights Commission.

BE A WHISTLEBLOWER: The most effective thing that individuals can do is to complain when they see corrupt acts occurring. This can be difficult when your superiors are the ones who are misbehaving! But not impossible

FILE RTI: Access to official information through RTI is legal. Get information for R&D projects, infrastructure projects of your organization and inform the people there. Officials may be asked to explain why the money has not gone where it should have, and can be shamed into changing their behavior in future.

DE-WEED THE SYSTEM: When you see opportunities to remove unnecessary blockages in systems that serve no useful purpose but which create opportunities for corruption, write to ministers, MPs, MLAs, newspapers, media drawing attention to the reforms needed.
