CORRUPTED ADMINISTRATION OF INDIA


If we talk about the Administration of India we all must say it is not a well maintained or a well centralized Administration as comparison to other Asian countries.
Poor Administration of India is just because of the poor political leaders of our country. They used to do some unofficial work for the sake of money, this makes Administration of India weaker. This is not the only example which makes Administration of India affected badly there are lots of other factors which makes it worse.
