The Prevention of Corruption Act came into force on 9 September 1988 by the parliament of India. The territorial extent of the Prevention of Corruption Act extends to whole India including the citizens of India outside India. Parliament made this action to remove corruption in government agencies and public sector businesses in India. For almost 25 years no amendment was made in this act. The objective of the Prevention of Corruption Act is to reduce the corruption in India in various government agencies and public sector businesses by combating against them. However, it is not only limited to taking measures to prevent corruption in government departments but also involves prosecuting and punishing the public servants involved in activities of corruption. In addition, the act also takes into consideration the persons who helped the offenders in committing the offence of either bribery or corruption.
