On dealing with the prevention of corruption and bribery by ethics, Government of India now is mulling over the idea of introduction of content related to corruption and ethics in the school textbooks.
The nation is dealing with the problem of widespread corruption as officials try to dupe people by luring them in various deals and asking for money in order to earn more and more money. The step of introducing lessons on the bad consequences of corruption will create a perilous impact on the socioeconomic sphere. The preventive measures will also help in avoiding corruption and other wrongdoings that affect the nation's performance. Various educational committees of India like CBSE, AICTE, Medical Council of India (MCI) and other bodies have decided along with Central Vigilance Commission and HRD ministry to introduce these texts in the syllabus.
On the occasion of 13th anniversary of Vigilance Study Circle, Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) K V Chowdary said, "From the Commission's side, we have been in touch with the Ministry of Human Resources Development, the Central Board of Secondary Education and also the AICTE and MCI to introduce simple course content to enable students right from the schools to the colleges to understand what corruption is, what bribery is and what integrity is and how the personal ethic is different from the ethic expected from you in an office. What could be the consequences if you don't follow the ethical way etc., so that in a small capsule of say, two or three chapters, spread over a class study of two or three years, be it for the secondary schools or for the professional colleges, they could be made aware of the need for anti-corruption and what actually corruption is."
He also laid emphasis on the fact that, bribery and corruption are considered synonyms, but in the original sense corruption has a wider reach and is related other than money involvement and a wider implication. Steps like these will help the nation in progressing.
