About/from the judgment:

With Advancement In Technology, Ways Of Corruption Have Also Advanced!

 

Today, finding an honest person is a rarity. Dishonesty and corruption are routine affair. Honesty has become a scarcity and virtually an endangered species. We need immediate step to evolve a scheme (as is being practiced in respect of rare animals) to protect honest and impartial men of integrity. True that number of such persons is decreasing, still we believe that society has ample honest people. Need is only to identify and encourage them so that their number may get increased.

 

For this purpose, what is needed more is a simultaneous deterrent action against corrupt and dishonest people by finding them out and punish sternly. Failure of system in meeting menace of corruption and dishonesty is encouraging these corrupt people, multiplying their cadre. It is causing reverse impact on honesty and integrity. We boast lot in favor of removal of corruption but do least. In fact, no serious attempt is vigilant so as to give even a ray of hope to ordinary citizens. The disease is spreading like anything and treatment requires a traumatic attempt.

 

Now corruption takes place in variety of ways. It had discovered myriad of ways. Sometimes apparent corruption may not be visible since it has its consequences in various phases, means and stages. As we have advanced in technology, ways of corruption have also advanced. Many a times one may find a transaction to be simple and ordinary but in effect it is full of corruption. People involved in corruption are now part of everyday life and it has engulfed society in a very big way.

 

…entire process adopted by respondents in the present case is nothing but a farce and full of manipulations, fraud, misrepresentation. Various officials have gone to the extent of making false averments before this Court knowing it well that they are not in a position to explain apparent contradictions in record.
