According to the organizers, the beginning of corruption initiated with the political leaders who damaged the democratic structure of our country. The recent trend is that the people who work sincerely are not recognized and are denied high positions. The main reason behind corruption is the unethical relation between the politicians, criminals, corporate and bureaucrats. The corporate level corruption includes malpractice in weighing products, food adulteration and demanding high profits, and other kinds of bribery which is increasingly victimized in our society. Tax evasion is yet another practice prevailing in the country. In Panchayats and Municipalities, the officials charge tax even though the building is constructed as per building rules and plan is approved by the Government.

The major cause for the deteriorating of political parties is the increased corruption. This in turn damages the prime significance of the government. Due to these reasons, democracy, rule of law, law and order, sovereignty and integrity of the nations, human rights etc are negatively affected. But now, corruption is affected globally and had become a menace to the entire international community. Hence, raising voice against corruption had become one of the primary developmental problems in India. It is also estimated that if corruption in India reduces, the GDP growth rate will gradually increase every year in India. Thereby, unemployment and poverty can be minimized.

To fight against corruption, the H.N.B. Garhwal University ventures to find answer to the problem by conducting a conference on this topic. The conference will definitely contribute to the suggestions of eminent persons.
