2015 12:08 am Related News Despite sharing power with the BJP in the state government,responsible positions? The first question we posed them was whether it was true that the entire systemor even a large part of itwas corrupt I wondered about that; foras a much younger manduring one of my stints in governmentit was thought that perhaps less than a tenth of my secretary-level colleagues were of doubtful integrity They would frequent embassy and corporate partiesbut were kept out of the loop of serious work The general reaction to my question was that this was still true Some felt the percentage may be higher; some contested that These were senior civil servantsjuristsjournalists and academics; but they were reasonably alert personsand it is likely that they have a reasonable perspective on reality So if everybodyor even a large majorityis not for sale we can avoid thinking of ourselves as a banana republic There was however a persistent feelingthoughthat while corruption was still a minority practicemore and more persons in authority would passively ignore wrongdoing rather than confront it as they did earlier This was attributed to earlier a gradualand later an acceleratederosion of Central authority and therefore a condoning of wrongdoing by default Coalition regimesit was arguedtended to acquiesce to wrongdoing Alsothe need for political funds was greater when there was a multiplicity of parties; once the process is underwaytheres no way of knowing where the individual siphoned away largesse collected originally for party purposes I was not too happy with this argument There was nothing in principle that suggested that centralised regimes were less corrupt I felt there was considerable merit in the Rajiv-era argument that decentralisation would in fact reduce corruption in the long runsince it would be more visible as a leakage from commitments made at the local level The question then becomes: can we develop rules for coalition regimes The development of rule-based systems for a polity with an ever-expanding empowerment of groups and individuals becomes a challenge Sometimes the quest itself degenerates into formalisms The first rule has to beof coursezero tolerance for corruption Having said thatis the elite which includes all of us willing to share the largesse society provides to each one of us with an expanding political elitelegally In my own experiencewhen I switched from academia to being a ministermy salary went down by around 40 per cent Through the time I was an MPour personal savings went down by a lot of money nearly Rs 80000 By now MPs and ministers are paid betterbut most of us are paid better tooand we resent any largesse to the political class It is rubbish to think that they are inferior beings But by doing so we force corruption even for those who may want to be honest There are other rules In the second half of the 80sRaja Chelliahs work showed that around two-thirds of industry was shifted from controls to fiscal and financial rule-based regulation In the Bureau of Industrial Controls and PricesI supervised this transitionwith dual-pricingtariff regulation and other financial rule-based policies The transition was contestedbut the courts upheld themgiven the transparency with which it was done In only two cases did a powerful corporate group scuttle the reform and it was postponed But when you have weak regulators retired bureaucratswho tend to defend their earlier bailiwick and work in a non-transparent manner orworse stillpass off everything to a political processan EGoM problems are invited in design More rules for coalition regimes are needed We need a positive debate A
