Corruption, in India, is a major problem. Nowadays we find corruption everywhere – in the field of bureaucracy, land, property, tendering processes, medicine, transport, income tax and even Judiciary. We can analyze that corruption can be seen in religious institutions too. Some of the religious institutes in India are making money on the name of some religious rituals like in Churches People are selling Baptism certificates; in temples Priests are charging money on the name of different ceremonies etc. Some persons, on the name of God, are making people fool. . We can remove corruption from India if all of us follow the ideas of Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi. His ideas were Satya (Truth), Ahimsa (non-violence) and Satyagraha (passive resistance).

Keywords: Corruption, Corruption in different fields, Satya (Truth), Ahimsa (non-violence) and Satyagraha (passive resistance)
