“Clean” countries such as Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Netherlands have “dodgy records elsewhere”
The Berlin-based corruption watchdog Transparency International (TI) has put India at 76 Rank out of 168 countries in its latest Corruption Perception Index.
The country’s 2015 corruption perception score remains the same as last year’s – 38/100 – showing lack of improvement. India shares its rank along with six other countries: Brazil, Burkina Faso, Thailand, Tunisia and Zambia. China fared worse than India and Brazil at rank 83 with a score of 37. TI has also noted that Pakistan is the only country among the SAARC countries, to have improved its score this year, though its rank remains poor at 117.
