What do you understand by corruption ?

Corruption is a form of deviation from normal norms of loyalty.

Any person other than legal remuneration for any other person will accept or attempt to receive any remuneration, he will be punished with imprisonment of up to three years (rigorous or ordinary) or with fine or fine.

The second type of corruption is the misuse of government money. What is not generally considered corruption is the excess of government money. Spending of government money for unnecessary purposes or spending more than necessary on essential purposes is wastage of government money, which has an undue effect on the general public.
