Wasteful expenditure to impress authorities is also corruption
While Prime Minister Narendra Modi is engaged in taking steps to curb corruption, many agencies are involved in encouraging corrupt practices. Wasteful expenditure of public money to impress authorities is also corruption. Recently a coffee table book on success stories of Right to Information “ Trust Through Transparency” was unveiled at central information commission’s ( CIC ) annual Convention. CIC has spent more than 17 lakh rupees on that book, but only 6 copies of the book were ready at the unveiling function. Copies of the book could not be distributed amongst Information commissioners or other participants present at the Convention for the reasons best known to CIC only.
