Paragraph or Speech on “Corruption” Complete Paragraph or Speech for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Paragraph No. 01


Corruption, these days, is a very common and frequently used word. It has almost dominated each and every aspect of society so much so that it is no longer considered anything bad or hideous. It has been largely accepted by the society as a mean to achieve what cannot be achieved by means called fair.

In olden days corruption was limited to the Government offices where you had to pay something to get your case, settled speedily or in your favour. Now it is the order of day. Bribes and openly invest the money in properties which are obviously disproportionate to their legal means of income. Their standards of life rise to the sky in the matter of days and the general people look at them aghast.

The development has had a deep impact on each and every aspect of life. Everyone wants to rise to the top by all the foul means. Every profession seems to be infested with all criminal activities to earn beyond legal limits. Duplicacy and fake business is seen everywhere. Every day we hear about big and small factories making duplicate articles and the same being sold openly with connivance of the authorities. The police connive criminals and there is a well organized parallel government of the underworld ruling the roost. They take share in every nig illegal bargain or understanding; they force the successful business personalities and the corrupt officials pay them handsomely.

The situation seems to end nowhere. The moral values seem to be trampled under the feet. The fair and the genuine seems to be the quite rare. The common man looks towards heavens for help as there seems no other way. Corruption has gone very deep into the vitals of not only this society but only this society but all other countries also.

We should not leave hope as there are still people present, though a few, who with their high moral standards can work wonders and rid this society of this menace forever.


Paragraph No. 02




Corruption is the bane of modern society. This corruption has pervaded all walks of life. There is hardly a person in India who is either himself not corrupt or is not affected by this menace in one way or the other.

The most alarming thing is that corruption has gained social respectability. It is closely linked to the question of attaining money, wealth, property and status. One who has wealth is respected in society by whatever means he might have got this wealth. And it should be no matter of rejoicing for us, the so-called proud patriotic Indians, that

India is greeted in international arena as one of the most corrupt countries of the world, being one of the few at the top who blaze the inglorious path of corruption.

It may not be possible to name all the scams, scandals and embezzlement that have taken place in various departments and at various levels in India. Only a few may be named to gauge the preponderance and potentially of this monstrous menace: the Bofors, the securities scam, the fodder scam, the housing scam, the petrol pumps scam, the recruitment scam, the sugar scam, the stamp scam, the telecommunication scam, the food scam, the cash-on-camera scam, the tehelka scam, etc.

It will not be an exaggeration or fallacy if a person asserts that it is an uphill task for a really honest and truthful man to lead a life of bare existence, much less an honourable life. What greater calamity can befall a country where honest, sincere and hardworking men are ridiculed and even tortured by knaves, villains, scoundrels, goons and hooligans hired by the vested interests that be!

The condition at present is such that you cannot get any work done by an official in any department unless you grease his palms. There is no service for a really honest man who is not ready to pay the hush money, however brilliant in studies he may be.

The only hope for the common man in India lies in the efforts of the judiciary and the vigilance commission whose hands should be strengthened to deliver the people from the clutches of the monster called “Corruption”.
