Indian laws are full of loopholes is one of the reason for corruption.

In India, we pay bribe to do legal work.
In India, we pay more bribes to convert illegal work into legal work by using loopholes or pay bribe so government officers will not take any action on illegal activities and constructions.
Thus, overall 99% corruption you can find in India at every place.
Top to bottom everyone says Jai Ho corruption

Good to read that CBI successfully cracked this case...Hope this sets some fear in minds of corrupt officials..but we need hundreds of such arrests every day...long way to go.

While it is true that such bribery acts should be discouraged by legal actions, which cases to follow and which cases not to follow is still with the hands of the investigative agencies. How they select cases to follow requires a special investigation in itself.
