Anti-Corruption Legislation In India: Effective Or Ineffective?

Aneira Pereira, Our Own English, Sharjah


This article offers a fresh perspective on the effectiveness of anti-corruption legislation in India. Scholars seeking to evaluate the effectiveness of the judiciary and the executive in implementing the anti-corruption law should compare the number of people who have engaged in corruption relative to the number of people who have been convicted for the same as well as the number of corruption-related cases that have been registered versus the number of cases that have been tried. To gauge the effectiveness of anti-corruption legislation in India, I introduce a new measurement called the Corruption Trial Index (CTI). Using this index, this article first illustrates the complex problem of corruption and its implications on our democracy and economy. Second, it goes over the national legislation in place to counter corruption followed by an evaluation of its effectiveness employing the CTI.
