International Anti-corruption Day

International Anti-corruption Day Special Audio

In 2023, to mark the twentieth anniversary of UNCAC (United Nations Development Program), they are consolidating global efforts to combat corruption and enhance transparency under the theme “UNCAC at 20: Uniting the World Against Corruption”.

Every year on December 9, Anti-Corruption Day is celebrated around the world to raise the voice against corruption. In 2003, the United Nations General Assembly recognized the day as Anti-Corruption Day.

What is done today?
Today, the focus is on raising awareness about corruption around the world. Corruption can be reduced if the importance of humanity, morality, and a simple lifestyle without ambition is inculcated in the people. On the other hand, if we can set an example by taking action against the corrupt, we can move forward towards the path of radical development by reducing corruption in the coming days.
The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority has been constituted as a constitutional body to take action against the persons holding positions in various bodies of any institution or state in Nepal.

We need to learn to live happily and earn our living without being plagued by constant new dreams, including money and a happy lifestyle. It is also our right and obligation to pay taxes to the government and to advocate for it. Making a fortune through corruption may be short-lived. Such wealth afflicts generations.

Every state in the world has taken the best measures to address this crisis and to avoid global economic collapse. Billions of funds are being engaged in procuring medical equipment and an economic safety net for people and businesses in distress. This creates magnificent opportunities for corruption, this year's anti-corruption day focuses on the crisis and corruption.

Constitutional provisions of Nepal against corruption

Under Part 21 of the Constitution of Nepal 2072, Article 238 provides for the formation of the Commission, while Article 239 provides for the work, duties and powers of the Commission. In accordance with the provisions in the constitution, if a complaint is received that a person holding a public office has committed corruption or abuse of authority, or if it is found during the investigation, the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority may investigate or investigate in accordance with the law.
More than the provisions made by the law, it is important to think within us to move forward against corruption. It is necessary to establish a habit of evaluating a person based on his qualities, morals and education rather than the house he builds, the car he drives, the clothes he wears. Best wishes for a free, civilized, equal and transparent society free from corruption. Salute to the activists who are engaged in the anti-corruption campaign, let us all move forward against this, join hands to eradicate bribery and corruption.

Best wishes of this day.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
