Have-Will ?

The lokayuktha in bangalore have found out massive case of corruption amongst top police officials. check it out here.
Already bangalore has the reputation of being the most corrupt amonst all public departments.
Now the point to think about is this. A person pays 1,500 rupees to get a NOC certificate for his/her vehicle while it is actually free. Ask him why and he/she tells you i dont know where that office is, i dont what to waste time, i dont know the language and other lame excuses.
I think a little bit of extra effort from the people would go a long way in preventing corruption. After all if they dont want to put effort for their own activities, what is the point in blaming others and saying they are corrput ?
I think this is a clear case of have-will. I have money i will spend. Atleast spend it on something useful !

    I agree that there is no point blaming others but the example you gave doesn't seem fit.

    If the person pays 1500 to the govt. official issuing the NOC so that he gets it faster or whatever, then that is corruption. But when he doesn't know where the office is, what the procedures are, then he uses the services of someone to get the NOC. So these shld be service charges for the someone to get this done.

    [Its a diff. question whether that someone pays the govt. official to get the job done and if he does its corruption!].

    naikutti: That is what i have mentioned. We can take a little initiative to find out where the necessary things are right ? Corrpution whether directly or indirectly is something we can try to avoid right ? that is my point.
