This chapter describes the new institutional and legislative reforms initiated in India to eliminate corruption. It argues that there is a case for developing a fundamental right to corruption-free service in India and suggests that the formulation of such a right, along with the development of other rights-based approaches to development, will help in eliminating corruption and promoting integrity and good governance. It discusses India's domestic anti-corruption legislative framework, the institutional measures of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), and the role of the Central Information Commission in fighting corruption.

Keywords:   institutional reforms, legislative reforms, corruption, corruption-free service, good governance, legislative framework, NHRC
