N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Transparency International has stated that corruption is on the rise in Nepal. In the list of 180 countries based on the concept of public sector corruption, Nepal is ranked 117th in the list of corrupt countries.
According to Transparency International, Nepal was ranked 34th (113th) in the list last year. According to the latest list, Nepal is in the category of corrupt countries.
Transparency International today released the Global Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI). A score of 100 in the index indicates that it is very clean and a score of zero indicates that it is very corrupt. This year, Nepal has scored only 33 out of 100 points.
According to a recent study by Transparency International, a survey of six organizations included for Nepal in CPI 2020 found that the government’s anti-corruption efforts were inadequate, corruption in the public sector and abuse of power, and lack of action against public officials continued.
The report is based on surveys conducted by six organizations, including the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, Global Insight, the Bertelsmann Foundation, the World Justice Project, and VDEM.
The report states that the Government of Nepal is weak in its efforts to prevent the Covid-19 epidemic due to corruption and that democracy is also in crisis.
