Common man faces mountain of bureaucracy, demand for bribe: Kaushik Basu
Chennai: An ordinary man is facing "a mountain of bureaucracy and the demand for bribes" in the country, Chief Economic Adviser Kaushik Basu said on Tuesday.

Addressing a seminar here, Basu said that corruption was something that India should be "ashamed of" and ordinary people's struggle to deal with bureaucracy and administration is "infuriating".

" ... India needs governance reforms and corruption control," he said.

He said that nothing is as "infuriating as stories of corruption and the struggle a common man faces everyday in interaction with bureaucracy and with the administration".

"For ordinary people it is very very discouraging when you face a mountain of bureaucracy and the demand for bribes to be paid for these kind of things to be got to be done," he said.

"I personally feel that for a country that is on the verge of taking its seat at the global hightable, it is something we should be ashamed of..", he added.
