It's a welcome move. They plan to set up an anti-corruption helpline in the city to check corruption and ensure transparency in administration. This helpline will help those people who are forced to bribe to get their work done. The students will create a toll-free phone service where people can call up and inform the team about any corrupt activities taking place. The call will then be re-routed to the department concerned or anti-corruption bureau (ACB), depending on the seriousness of the issue. The project is a part of the GRIT (Globalising and Resurgent India through Initiative Transformation) course being taught at the institute. It is an excellent idea to make students take steps to control the monster called corruption which is haunting us since long. Student life is the formative period of the life, hence they should concentrate with the study and side by side they should be alert enough to fight against corruption if they detect with out any excuse.

The idea is wonderful and best timely. The management institutions and a few other technical institutions in India and their products have the knowledge, organizing capacity and different perception and approach to any problem, with a built in mechanism for controls and checks as well as economy. I remember one or two faculty commenting that they, with the help of some institutions, could undertake Govt. projects and complete them better than going on and in less time. In the back ground of inefficiency of Govt. establishments as well as private players, ideas and attempts of this type are God sent, I feel. Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam's association will confer it higher grading and efficiency. Let us look forward to early realization of this noble venture to save Bharat Mata from further scams and loots. Jai Hind.

The efforts and attempts of the students are well appreciable. Religious and political history give proofs of many Avtars and Humanitarians took births on this earth to fight against Adharm, which as on date is translated to ' Corruption'. And all these births taken throughout ages, but nothing could contain this menace, and it went on increasingly high and high. Let us hope best for the attempts of the students!
