Chapter Summary

The United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), a comprehensive instrument negotiated under the aegis of the United Nations, an organization with universal membership and a global mandate, is an ideal instrument to be considered for universal application. India signed the Convention on 9 December 2005 and is currently considering its ratification. This chapter analyzes India's preparedness in the national and international fight against corruption. It views that the ratification of the UNCAC would certainly compliment and strengthen the existing framework not only in India's internal fight against corruption, but could also benefit from the provisions on international co-operation and asset recovery. In this context, the chapter also analyzes whether the recently adopted UNCAC would compliment the Indian legal and institutional framework and in this process, provides an outline of the anti-corruption legal and institutional structure and framework in India, especially in the context of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.
