2012: India on 94th position in the Corruption Perceptions Index

27 Dec

India is on 94th position in Corruption IndexIndia is on 94th position in the Corruption Perceptions Index. Transparency International ranks countries on a scale from 0 (perceived to be highly corrupt) to 100 (perceived to be very clean). Two thirds of the 176 countries ranked in the 2012 index score below 50 – meaning they are considered significantly corrupt. India was ranked at 95th position last year, the international watchdog said it has started evaluating the positions through a different formula beginning this year and hence this cannot be compared to last year’s ranking. This year, India has a score of 36 out of 100 on a scale from 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). India was ranked 72 among 180 countries for the first time in 2007 and since then the country’s rankings have been showing a decline. While India was placed at 87 in 2010, the position was 95 in 2011. This year, India is ranked below neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka and China. The Index, which is closely watched by investors, economists, and civil society campaigners, is based on expert assessments and data from 13 surveys from independent institutions, covering issues such as access to information, bribery of public officials, kickbacks in public procurement, and the enforcement of anti-corruption laws.
