IIM-A students to start helpline on corruption
Ahmedabad: At a time when the country is being rocked by a number of scams, some students of Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad have decided to launch a helpline on corruption to curb the menace.

A group of six IIM-A students proposed the idea of starting the helpline to former President A P J Abdul Kalam and IIM-A professor Anil Gupta, which was appreciated by them.

"When the students mooted the idea of starting a corruption helpline, I thought that the idea was excellent in present context when the situation in the country is such that common people think that their work cannot be done without giving bribes," Gupta said.

The country was recently rocked by 2G spectrum scam, Commonwealth Games scam and Adarsh society scam which have brought the issue of corruption in focus.
