A DEBATE - Oxford Dictionary defines “Corruption” as Dishonest or Illegal behavior, especially of people in authority. This may be one angle to view “Corruption”. A section of people in the society may have amassed the entire wealth of the country legally leaving the majority to poverty. Is it not a “Corruption”? In my humble submission, “Corruption” needs to be seen and understood in terms of the Constitutional philosophy of ‘egalitarian society’. Article 38 of the Constitution mandates the State to strive to minimize the inequalities in income, and endeavor to eliminate in status, facilities and opportunities, not only amongst individuals but also amongst groups of people residing in different areas or engaged in different vocations. Therefore, the guiding factors to track and to check the menace of “Corruption” must be none other than the Constitution of India.
