We’ve written a number of articles on ethics and ethical dilemmas including ethics issues in bankingdrivers and bankers and drugs and ethics.


So we were intrigued to come across I Paid A Bribe.

ipaidabribe.com is Janaagraha’s unique initiative to tackle corruption by harnessing the collective energy of citizens. You can report on the nature, number, pattern, types, location, frequency and values of actual corrupt acts on this website. Your reports will, perhaps for the first time, provide a snapshot of bribes occurring across your city. We will use them to argue for improving governance systems and procedures, tightening law enforcement and regulation and thereby reduce the scope for corruption in obtaining services from the government. We invite you to register any recent or old bribes you have paid. Please tell us if you resisted a demand for a bribe, or did not have to pay a bribe, because of a new procedure or an honest official who helped you. We do not ask for your name or phone details, so feel free to report on the formats provided.

Janaagraha is a not-for-profit organization that aims to strengthen democracy in India by working for citizen participation in urban local government. And what a great initiative!
