How to remove corruption from India
In 1991-92, I was the State Inquiry Officer of Assam, the head of the state's anti-corruption machinery. This senior post is usually held by Additional Chief Secretaries (I was given this role while still a relatively junior Secretary).
That experience was bolstered by the experience of being Additional Chief Electoral Officer of Assam which provided me detailed opportunities to look at the causes of corruption.
This, along with a huge amount of other experience, reading, and research, informs the detailed anti-corruption package I've outlined in my book, Breaking Free of Nehru.
The following ILLUSTRATIVE blog posts throw light on this matter:

- Vohra Committee Report, 1993
