In the past three years, the Government has endeavoured to remove corruption in every form and technology presents itself as one of the most potent tools. But, technological interventions work when the interventions are simple, transparent and include a public feedback mechanism. Utilising advancements in technology, the Government is following a multi-pronged strategy to tackle the problem in an effective manner

1. Transferring benefits directly to beneficiaries
2. Making government procurements transparent
3. Digitization of service deliveries
4. Promoting Cashless Transactions
5. Jan Bhagidari
6. Open Government Data

Direct Benefit Transfer was a significant step towards plugging leakages. Amount transferred via DBT is increasing and leakages are reducing. The government has laid equal emphasis on citizens getting Aadhaar. The Jan Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile (JAM) trinity will bring complete accountability in monetary transactions and eliminate ghost beneficiaries.

Additionally, Government e-Marketplace (GeM) was launched to make government procurements simple and transparent, eliminating any scope of corruption. Faceless e-assessment for income tax payers introduced from 2018 was another important step. Tax officers now communicate with the taxpayers through the ‘E-Proceeding' facility which reduces human interface.

The fight against corruption is a long and arduous one. Various online platforms have been introduced by the government, wherein the citizens can join forces with them by sharing their feedback and views. The decision to involve the honest citizens of our country in the fight increases the strength of the force against corruption to a great extent.

In the same vein, MyGov invites citizens to share their ideas on how technology can be used to uproot corruption and suggest innovations to fight the malice in an effective manner. Ideas and suggestions can be provided in the form of a comment below or by attaching a PDF document.

* Educate children about corruption - Include in the syllabus from standard one like moral

* Make every individual accountable for what they claim and earn.

All the above said to be made mandatory visuals and displays by social media and at all public places. Make the social media companies liable for spreading awareness about corruption so as to reduce corruption.

सर जी पता नही हम बिकलांगों के अछे दिन कब आएगे /जो भी सुबिधा मिलती है उसे या तो सरकारी बाबू बताते नही या बाद मे आना कहेकर टल देते है / पेन्सन 500रुपये पर महीने है न ही रसन कार्ड की सुबिधा । हमेसा दूसरों पर निर्भर रहने पढ़ता है किसी भी सरकार का ध्यान बिकलांग की तरफ नही है

Sir...Smart phone penetration has been increasing like anything... Each and every Nagarpalika, Municipal Corporations, Taluka and Jilla Panchayat should be having it's own interactive mobile application. People should be able to register issues/problems on interactive app. All developmental work of local body should be published on app so that people get to know developmental work being undertaken in their area. All public services should be available at fingure tip.

We can try to bring all govt programmes online. All these programmes should be linked with aadhar so that fraud can be controlled. Make a online portal so that people can raise the issue of corruption in their areas. Even by introducing toll free numbers. Digital payments can also reduce corruption. Giving a share of money to public for helping to capture corrupted people.
