India Is Asia's Most Corrupt Country - Frobes
 
Meanwhile India try to hide its true picture from world by print, electronic media and different slogans, Forbes reported that India top in corruption in Asia pacific.
 
Read the full report below,
 
One of the main objective of the current Indian government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been to make India corruption free. But it seems the country still has a long way to go. A recent survey by Transparency International (TI), an anti-corruption global civil society organization, states that India has the highest bribery rate among the 16 Asia Pacific countries surveyed. In contrast, Japan has the lowest bribery rate, with 0.2% respondents paying a bribe.
 
Approximately 900 million -- or over one in four -- people across 16 countries in Asia Pacific, including some of its biggest economies like India and China, are estimated to have paid a bribe to access public services. For its report titled "People and Corruption: Asia Pacific", TI spoke to nearly 22,000 people in these countries about their recent experiences with corruption.
 
Even massive economic players like China aren't that far behind India. The biggest economy in the region has a lot to do in terms of fighting corruption. Nearly three quarters of the people surveyed in the country said corruption has increased over the past three years, suggesting people don’t see much work happening against corruption.
 
 
People in the survey were also asked to rate their government in terms of how it was performing in fighting public sector corruption. More than half the people living in India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Indonesia felt that their government was doing a good job in fighting corruption. In contrast people in South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia didn’t think highly of their government in its fight against corruption.
 
Services people pay for
 
Across the region, nearly two in five said that they thought most or all police officers were corrupt. Unsurprisingly, just under a third of people in the region who had come into contact with a police officer in the past 12 months had paid a bribe. While citizens of Pakistan were the most likely of any country to be asked for bribes in law and order institutions (around seven in 10), for India the police bribery rate is 54% and for China a low 12%. 
 
 
India had the highest bribery rates of all the countries surveyed for access to public schools (58%) and healthcare (59%), suggesting serious corruption risks when people try to access these basic services. In comparison these numbers for Pakistan and China for public schools are 9% and 29% respectively. In terms of healthcare, the rate for China is 18% and for Pakistan 11%.
 
Ilham Mohamed, regional coordinator for Asia at TI feels that people in these regions find it tough to access basic services. “People don’t pay bribes for quicker access to services,” says Mohamed. “The problem is most don’t have access to basic services like healthcare, school or law and order. What the data across Asia Pacific shows is that the poor are disproportionately affected by petty bribery," says Mohamed.
 
Mohamed says low civil service salaries coupled by systems that allows little or no access redress mechanisms are main reasons behind corruption. “In other words people with limited resources are further disempowered by an additional hurdle in accessing public services through having to pay bribes. This cycle continues when redress mechanisms are inaccessible,” she says.

Indian red faces over tallest flag at Pakistan border

 

 

Indian red faces over tallest flag at Pakistan border

India's tallest flag, which towers over the border with arch-rival Pakistan, is causing red faces - because it cannot stand up to the weather.

The tricolour was hoisted last month but keeps getting torn by the wind and is being replaced for a fourth time.

It was launched with media fanfare but now officials say national pride is being dented and money wasted.

Pakistanis are likely to be amused - the aim was for the flag to be seen from deep inside their territory.

Indian press reports at the time said the 106m (350ft)-tall flag at the Wagah crossing would be visible from Lahore, 20km (12.5 miles) away.

Instead, officials have had to spend more money on replacements because by law a damaged flag cannot be flown.

Suresh Mahajan, the chairman of the Amritsar Improvement Trust, which is responsible for maintaining the flag, said that the situation amounted to a "crime".

"The national flag is our pride and I request the government to call an inquiry over the issue and those responsible should be punished," he told BBC Hindi.

Gurpreet Singh Soni, who runs a shop at the border, said the absence of the flag was "disappointing" visitors.

Apparently, Indian planners didn't take into account the strong winds the Wagah flag would face.

The chief of the Flag Foundation of India, KV Singh, said he had advised against such a tall flag.

"We had suggested to hoist a smaller flag to avoid frequent damage but the aim is to ensure that the Indian flag is visible from Lahore in Pakistan."

The Wagah flag is not the only Indian one to face problems.

An 88m flag in the southern city of Hyderabad installed near the 455-year-old Hussainsagar lake also keeps tearing because of strong winds.

And KV Singh said a 63m flag in the capital, Delhi, tore 11 times in May and June last year.

"This despite the Delhi flag being a smaller flag than the one in Hyderabad. So damage is normal when the flag is high," says Mr Singh.

"By law, the flag is to be made of khadi, a special type of hand-spun cloth or silk, made popular by Mahatma Gandhi."

 

But nevertheless, the new fabric will be the world's first combination of spider silk and carbon nanotubules embedded in a composite matrix.  It will be the strongest anyone has ever seen!

They have spent INR 155,000 on this flag business.  For the same amount, at least 5-10 makeshift toilets could be stood up in remote areas of India to help stem the problem of open defecation.  I am not saying our idiots don't waste money when it could be used elsewhere, but this huge flag hype has to be one of the stupidest things to focus on.

In all seriousness is it any wonder why they cannot make advanced military equipment when they cannot even figure out the basic principles of physics when making large flags?

It's not knowledge of physics they lack but common sense.

So far they haven't blamed the destruction of flags on Pakistani ISI funded sparrows chipping away at Gandhi - era fabric. I am sure DRDO's best are building some space age material thats used in the Teja's seat cloth that will be used for the next flag. And after that, people in Lahore are going to realize, 'I didn't India was so close, why don't we become part of it'. Soft power at its worst.

That is one way of looking at it.  The way I see it is that the whole system is set up to milk the central government and foreign firms of as much money as possible.  That means that every failure of an indigenous system is a success.  Employment is perpetuated and funds keep flowing from the central government.  The general public is convinced that ancient Hindus had developed all of today's science and technology themselves and therefore it can be done again.  They keep the pressure on the government to keep these useless programs alive.

 

When it comes to foreign firms, they want them to pay bribes every step of the way.  Therefore, the steps are many.  The acquisition process is prolonged and many firms are told to submit proposals in the name of "competition."  There is really no competition going on.  The more the firms, the more bribes can be had.  So the objective is to get as many firms involved as possible for as long as possible.  This ensures the highest bribes for the system.

 

In short, the system ensures that nothing can fulfill requirements of the armed forces.  This creates critical shortfalls that must be met on an emergency basis.  That means more money!

 

To me, there is no other explanation for the complete incompetence.  It is endemic and entrenched.  There is a reason why muslim invaders, being few in number, still won over large populations of India for over a thousand years.  It's the system.

I came to the same conclusion that their "procurement systems" and so called "indigenous Weapons Programs" are all bribery and ponzi schemes to grab money.

Yeah it was unexpected here in Australia; but my view is that this does not go far enough. There are still loop holes in this system. If the PM was really seriously about Australians first then he should have only introduced 2-year visa with much stricter criteria. Due to loop holes like this country is going to the dogs. The political elites here are largely disconnected from the ordinary people and their issues. In the last 5-years they have done immense damage to quality of life here.
