Corruption poses a significant threat to the economic, social, and political fabric of any nation, impeding progress and hindering the realization of its full potential. India, as a rapidly growing economy and vibrant democracy, has made strides in combating corruption, yet the need for more stringent anti-corruption laws remains evident. This abstract delves into the imperative of enhancing the legal framework to address corruption in India comprehensively. The current anti-corruption laws in India, embodied in statutes like the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, have shown limitations in effectively tackling the evolving nature of corrupt practices. This abstract argues for a multifaceted approach to fortify the legal arsenal against corruption. India has several laws that Govern & helps in prevention of corruption in Indian territory by application of laws/Acts IPC(Indian Penal Code ,1860), Prevention of Corruption Act,1988 etc, But it fails to stops corruption as the punishment is not that much rigorous in nature and Corruption in India is a complex issue influenced by Various Factors, Such as Weak enforcement, Bureaucratic inefficiencies and Societal attitudes. Laws alone may not be sufficient without effective implementation, transparent systems, and a culture that discourages corruption.
