As seen in the infographic above, India’s performance on the Global Corruption Perception Index for 2017 has improved from pre-2014 days. Since 2013, India has improved both its score as well as ranking on the GCI. In 2013, India had a score of 36, today it has a score of 40. In 2013, India was ranked 94 out of 177 countries. In 2017, it has been ranked 81 out of 180 countries.
However, with the publication of Transparency International’s Global Corruption Index for 2017, sections of the media and political commentators wasted no time in offering their opinion. Much of this turned out to be fake propaganda distorting facts and spreading apparent lies.
For the benefit everybody else spinning the GCI rankings to argue that India has become worse in terms of corruption in 2017 than in 2016, below are the plain facts:
India’s rank in 2016 was 79 out of 176 countriesIn 2017, India was ranked 81 out of 180 countriesSo, in effect, India’s ranking has improvedAgain, India’s score was 40 in 2016This score has not changed in 2017. Therefore, India has not performed any worse in terms of corruption in 2017Now, the 2016 score of 40 was better than the score of 38 in 2015In 2014, out of 174 countries, India was ranked 85, with a score of 38In 2012 and 2013, India’s score was 36 for each yearIn 2013, India’s score was 36 and it was ranked 94Therefore, not only has India improved its performance 2014 onwards but it is doing much better nowThe two-notch dip in 2017 is because of one additional state above and one state moving up on the listIn sum, not only has India’s score improved from 36 in pre-2014 days to 40 now, but India’s rank has also improved from 94 in pre-2014 days to 81 now.
