Those seeking information under RTI Act less than 1 percent
Posted On November 5th, 2017, Posted By - Admin
In Jammu and Kashmir, at least 44 per cent of the population has experienced corruption in the last fiscal, reveals Center for Media Studies’ India Corruption Study CMS – ICS.
The study puts as the 5th most corrupt state, Karnataka 77 percent followed by Andhra Pradesh 74 percent, Tamil Nadu 68 percent, Maharashtra 57 percent, and Punjab 42 percent have made it to the list of top corrupt states in India in the fiscal.
As per the study, conducted in 2017, a conservative estimate of the total bribe amount paid during last one year in 20 surveyed states across 10 public services is around Rs 6,350 crore.
The study also reveals that 84 per cent of the households in J&K perceived that the corruption level increased or remained the same in 2016-17.
Among public services, the study adds, households reported experiencing corruption in police was at 34 per cent, followed by land/housing 24 per cent, judicial services 18 per cent) and tax 15 percent and PDS 12 per cent.
In most of the states, the study says, the bribe amount ranges between Rs 100-500.
However an amount of as low as Rs 10 and as high as Rs 50,000 was also paid by households in a year for availing one or the other public service.
It will possibly take some more time to build the requisite awareness. It will not be fair to say that the RTI has had little impact on transparency in the Government. Lot of progress has been achieved since 2011. It is work in progress. The State Information Commission is doing its bit and making a contribution, he said.
Carried out by CMS, a highly acclaimed three decade old not-for-profit research think tank in New Delhi, the study covered over 200 rural and urban clusters of 20 states including J&K.
According to the study, three less corrupt states in terms of households ‘experiencing corruption in public services’ are Himachal Pradesh 3 percent followed by Kerala 4 percent and Chhattisgarh 13 percent.
In 2005, a similar CMS study had put the percentage of households experiencing corruption in public services at Bihar 74 percent, J&K 69 percent, Odisha 60 percent, Rajasthan 59 percent and Tamil Nadu 59 percent.
In 2005, Kerala 35 percent, Maharashtra 39 percent and Gujarat 43 percent were the less corrupt states.
