Bangalore: Corruption, which was once considered to be something that takes place behind the closed doors, is now rampant even on the Indian roads too. At present, in about 60 percent of cases, police and higher officials demand for bribe from truckers by stopping them without giving a valid motive. This was revealed in a study conducted across major transport centres covering more than 1,200 truck drivers, reports Dipak Kumar Dash of TOI.

The study also disclosed the fact that almost 90 percent of such bribe paying cases goes into the pocket of policemen and transport department personnel.

The study was carried out by Centre for Media Studies (CMS) and Marketing and Development Research Associates (MDRA) at transport hubs in cities like Ludhiana, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Indore, Mumbai, Kolkata, Vijayawada, Bangalore and Chennai.

Alok Srivastava, director at CMS, said the situation was deteriorating year by year.  And he added that illegal tokens, passes and stickers were issued by the government agencies to allow vehicles to pass without any checks.
