    Every Ram, Sham, Lallu and Panju who has to interface with the Govt, be it the State Govt or a Central Govt is absolutely corrupt either by nature or is corrupted in due course by his corrupt boss doing chamcha giri to his political mentor. This is 200% correct. Guys like Khemka are misfits in the world of corruption. Babus and their bill collectors need not be too protective about this fact. The only way to beat this cancer is immediate dismissal and confiscation of the so far collected wealth with no recourse to courts and stopping all previleges including pension and PF, ex gratia etc.The guys names with photos should be published in big size in the news papers where they worked last and also in the Gazette, for every one to spit on the guy’s face. Their corruption should be highly publicised so that others take it as an example. In a few cases in the fields of medicine, pharmacy and public distribution systems they should be charged with extreme kind of crime i.e murder and hanged if proved in a court.For too long Indians have borne the pain due to these corrupt people in politics, Govt and private sector too. Modi should now act sternly with all such cases without partiality. Surely a law can be made for such a gross crime now in no time.Even the enforcement agencies like the CBI, Police, Vigilance etc should not be allowed to go away with light punishments.

    No government office, Union or State, is an exception to opaque deals. Solution lies in countrywide computerisation down to the village unit, reformatting the discretionary powers of the babus and massive investment in education and health sectors. India’s high cost of economic activity is largely a result of the opacity in interactions with government at all levels.

    Manu Neethi Chozhan who it is reported as the bribe taker carries a name of a legendary Tamil King who was famous for meting out justice to his citizen without fear or favour. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    What a falling off has been there!

    Is it the only case in the office of R O C ? Every day there may be hundreds of such bribery cases in the office of R O C of each states !!! How many of them are catch hold of? This reminds me one case of R O C who was put in one corner of the office for long time not given any routine work. Resigned and now he is practicing as CS !!!
    M C A offices , all , are in the same way. Not less.
