India ranked 94th in Corruption Perception Index ratings says Transparency International
"Corruption is a hydra-headed monster and governments have to make efforts to tackle it from all sides. This can only happen if all stakeholders work together," said P S Bawa, Chair of Transparency International India.
Anupama Jha, Executive Director of Transparency International India, listed the efforts being taken by the watchdog to create awareness about corruption among people and steps being implemented to curb the menace.
According to the 2012 CPI, majority of the 183 countries scores less than 50 -- a clear indication that corruption is perceived to be rampant world wide.
S K Agarwal, Co-chair of Transparency International India, hoped that the "Supreme Court will soon deliver its verdict on a PIL on debarring criminals from contesting elections".
This year, the Transparency International has updated its CPI methodology allowing for year-over-year comparisons for all editions published from this year.
