    Forbes has released the list of most corrupt countries in Asia. According to the list, India is the MOST CORRUPT country in Asia. Pakistan gets the 4th rank. Good to see Pakistan improving, still lot of work to do.


    Here is the list:

    1. India: 69% bribery rate

    In five of the six public services—schools, hospitals, ID documents, police, and utility services—more than half the respondents have had to pay a bribe. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s fight against corruption has made a mark: 53% of the people think he is going it fairly or very well. And it has led to people feeling empowered, as 63% believe ordinary people can make a difference.

    2. Vietnam: 65% bribery rate

    Vietnamese view corruption as endemic. Of all 16 countries surveyed, people in Vietnam (and Malaysia) were the most negative about the situation in their country. About 60% felt their government is doing a poor job of combatting corruption.

    3. Thailand: 41% bribery rate

    Thailand has struggled with corruption charges at all levels—even government officials—leading the current ruling military junta to tighten the Anti-Corruption Act in 2015. But the Thai people seem optimistic. Just 14% feel corruption had increased in last 12 months, and nearly 72% think the government is handling the fight against corruption fairly or very well.

    4. Pakistan: 40% bribery rate

    In Pakistan, about three-fourths of respondents perceive most or all of the police to be corrupt. Of the people who encountered either the police or the courts, nearly 7 in 10 had to pay a bribe. Sadly, people don’t feel things can change—only a third think ordinary people can make a difference.

    5. Myanmar: 40% bribery rate

    Despite a 2013 Anti-Corruption Law, about half of the respondents believe that most or all police are corrupt, and 40% believe the judiciary is corrupt. But things might be getting better—at least in the eyes of the people. Less than a fourth believe corruption has increased over the last year.

    Much Depends on how much people criticize themselves.

    Perception of Corruption Index:
    India: 79th
    Pak: 123rd

    Results are totally different in every list so let's not compare.

    Even bribery lists around the world vary greatly.
    Two Points:
    1. First, these are surveys, don't represent complete population.
    2. Second, People who said they had to bribe, may not necessarily have done so. Sometimes, people arr frustrated about the and make judgemental responses for perception.

    CORRUPTION PERCEPTIONS INDEX 2016

    http://www.transparency.org/news/feature/corruption_perceptions_index_2016

    Let's get straight to the point: No country gets close to a perfect score in the Corruption Perceptions Index 2016.

    Over two-thirds of the 176 countries and territories in this year's index fall below the midpoint of our scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). The global average score is a paltry 43, indicating endemic corruption in a country's public sector. Top-scoring countries (yellow in the map below) are far outnumbered by orange and red countries where citizens face the tangible impact of corruption on a daily basis.
