42% of people in contact with Indian police have had to pay a bribe

India has the highest level of corruption in Asia, according to Transparency International’s 2020 report.

Fighting corruption has been high on the list of government priorities for years, but little seems to change. Perhaps because the main tool of justice – the police force – is one of the main perpetrators.

The survey showed that 42% of people who had been in contact with the police in the past year had paid a bribe, while 39% had had to make use of personal connections.

If you can’t pay, and if you don’t know the right people, the police are unlikely to be of help.
