This chapter describes the existing framework for fighting corruption in India. It explains that historically, the legislative framework for ensuring corruption-free governance in India has largely been based upon two approaches. These are the promulgation of anti-corruption laws and vesting police and other similar law enforcement institutions with the task of the investigation and prosecution of crimes relating to corruption. It also discusses the issues of public interest litigation and judicial enforcement of corruption-free governance.
