There are so many reasons of corruption. Its first major reason is the low salaries of most of the government servants. To meet their needs, they take the support of corruption. Its second major reason is the apathetic and selfish attitude of a man. Everyone wants to become rich overnight. This thing compels him to be corrupt. Its third major reason is high standard of only a specific class of society. Most of the people belong to poor and middle class families. There are few people who belong to well to do families. The high standard of the people compels the other groups of society to adopt corruption to meet their needs and to be wealthy in society. Its fourth major reason is unnecessary expenditures on marriages and funerals. There are many other traditions on which the people have to spend money. All these things force a man to adopt the way of corruption. The last and one of the major reasons is increasing dearness. In this age of dearness, it is very difficult for a person of poor and average class to fulfill the needs of his family. To meet the needs of his family, he adopts negative ways.
To uproot corruption, some suitable measures can be of great value. First, the salaries of the government servants should be increased. Second, the corrupt persons should be given exemplary punishments. Third, dearness should be decreased.
To conclude, it should be the first and foremost duty of the government to uproot this evil from society so that the country may prosper and the deserving may get their rights. It is the only way with which the country can make progress. (Words: 521)
