  • 1. Citizens Against Corruption End the Rhetoric Talk Solutions, Implement Effectively
  • 2. It starts with “ME”
    • “ Be the change you want to see in the world.”
    • - Mahatma Gandhi
  • 3. Lets Create a Manifesto for an Indian, sign it and abide by it.
    • Manifesto for responsible citizen of this country:
    • I shall not pay bribe to a traffic police to get away when I break the traffic rule.
    • I shall not go the “agent path” while acquiring a driving license, passport, ration card, marriage certificate.
    • I shall not pay any amount over and above registered price of the property to the builder while buying property.
    • I shall not over rule merit by paying donation to get admission into an educational institution for my children.
    • … and so on..
    • Lets first become law abiding citizens of this country before throwing stones at the political class, babus.
    • - Create an online manifesto. become a signatory. abide by it.
  • 4. Fix the Systemic issues. The governance process.
    • Use Business Process Reengineering to fix our governance processes.
    • Automate them. Put time limits for completion. Collect and Track metrics. Use information systems.
    • Reduce the manual nature of the process. Examples :
    • How I get a driving license, ration card,7/12 utara.
    • How I file an FIR at police station.
    • How a simple non criminal court case progress.”without minimal adjournments” 
  • 5. Use our Expertise...its right here
    • We solve problems of the West…Software Development, BPOs, Call Centers, Medical Transcription.
    • Its time we solve our problems. Use TCS, Infosys and the likes to create information systems around government processes…create Government BPOs, Call Centers to cater to common man.
  • 6. Zoom in on Operations of “Special Government Departments”
    • Not all but if we target few government agencies to start with it will solve most of the problems. The top ones are :
    • PWD, Highways
    • RTO
    • Public Distribution Systems
    • Customs
    • Police
    • Courts
  • 7. Reduce Taxes…yes…
    • Our laws and taxes are archaic…
    • If we reduce stamp duty and registration charges for property there will be less black money transfers.
    • This country needs inexpensive electronics and information devices for growth. We are young population. If we reduce import duties all the “customs” corruption will go away.
  • 8. Start Performance Evaluation of Government Employees.
    • All Private sector does performance evaluation and feedback. Yearly increments, promotions are based on these. Why cant we have performance evaluation of government employees? If not yearly….every five years…
    • And give the good performers increments in time. Forget the “pay commissions". If they get good pay, they will not take bribes to do the work.
    • The problem with current pay is they are not at all motivated to do the work.
