Bangalore: Corruption is a big problem across the world and here are 10 most corrupt countries in the world that The Daily Beast named. Surprisingly India hasn’t made it to the list.



1. Uzbekistan:



Topping the corruption list is Uzbekistan. It is one of the fastest growing countries in Central Asia. Its economy relies mainly on production of cotton, gold, uranium, potassium, natural gas and petroleum. However, corruption and bureaucracy remains a major hurdle for further expansion. In spite of strong GDP growth rates, more than 40 percent of the population lives below poverty line.



The Corruption Index of Uzbekistan is 89.6 out of 100. On other factors, out of a total of 10 the rating is as follows-Public Perception of Corruption is 8.4, the Corruption of the Press is 9.4, Political Rights Corruption and Civil Liberties Corruption is 10 each and Business Disclosure Opacity is 7.



 



2. Eritrea:



Eritrea ranks second on the world’s most corrupt country list. It is a small economy in the Horn of Africa. Its output is based on subsistence agriculture, with 80 percent of the population involved in farming and herding. The economy is dependent on worker remittances from abroad which constitute more than 30 percent of GDP. Yet pervasive corruption continues to erode the foundations of economic freedom.



Eritrea has a Corruption Index of 87.8 out of 100.Its Public Perception of Corruption is rated 7.5, Corruption of the Press is 9.4, Political Rights Corruption and Civil Liberties Corruption is 10 each and Business Disclosure Opacity is 7.

3: No body can beat Indian Nehruvian Congress private limited in quantitative and length of corruption. 400 lakhs crores red and black money in foreign banks, 1.6 lakhs crore 2G scam and 10 lakhs crore in coal. Leave aside 60 lakhs of Nagarawalaa case, and Simla pact.

11: No westerns countries in the list? With billions of dollors of corruption in US it should head the list. I'm sure that the way it is measured is to shield themselves...

I don’t agree with you, because the private sector cheated public, not the government, all the cheaters are in jail for long time, probably will die in Jail. In India, Politicians are the most corrupted people. Before Britishers looted India, Now the Govt. and Politician's are robbing the country.

Well these western countries are so corrupt that they can or actually have courrupted this list of most corrupt countries. How can Afganistan be corrupt, they don't have anything to be so. Americans are now corrupting them same way as britishers have corrupted Indians.

15: NO country can be greater corrupt than INDIA where home minister knowing okays G2 contracts for companys with links with enemy country, head of ruling party traveling in enemy country's army jets and her sisters gettings hundreds of billions dollars in bribes, Prime Minister was knowing kept mum because he wanted to save his those corrupt ministers to save his party head and the government - country can be sold - no problem for him

16: It is hard to believe this survey report. The level of corruption must be inversely proportionate to the development of the country.In India, except Gujarat, all states have highest level of corruption and the development is very very poor compared to any other country. I am sure India must top the chart; if not in any field; at least in corruption India beats any other country.

23: I am glad India is not in Top 10, I take is as a sign of improvement and with new generations to come, I believe India will be one of the least corrupt country. I hope for the best.

I am fully agree with u and suggest to the one who think that india is the top in corruption then why not he leave india. why he suffer to live in india.Though your negative thinking is your personal view but no need to reveal at public. My asking this question who pessimistic about nation what u are doing to curb corruption?

lets hope for the best and if this trend continues we can hopefully see India as least corrupted country. For this to happen we the people of this nation should strive hard.

26: How have you missed out India. We have stalwarts such as Mr. Kalmadi, A Raja, Kanimozi, Yediyurappa, Reddy bandhu and many more who have done sterling work. Their efforts must be acknowledged by giving a place to India in the top ten.
