The malaise of corruption has become deeply embedded in the political and social fabric of the Indian society. The increased scale and frequency of corruption has negatively affected human rights, as well as development initiatives, economic growth, and access to justice. This work adopts a new approach for analysing corruption — corruption as a violation of human rights. It proposes the adoption of a multi-pronged strategy for eliminating corruption, including the creation of a new legislative framework, a new and independent empowered commission against corruption, and an effective institutional mechanism. It also compares India's experiences in fighting corruption with other governments in Asia including Singapore and Hong Kong.

Keywords: corruption; Indian society; human rights; development initiatives; economic growth; access to justice; legislative framework; independent commission; institutional mechanism
