India's Corruption Perception Index 2023 Ranking Drops to 93rd Key Insights and Global Comparisons

(CTN News) – India, along with the Maldives, Kazakhstan, and Lesotho, ranked 93rd out of 180 nations in the Corruption Perception report (CPI) for 2023, according to Transparency International, a worldwide civil society annual report.

In 2022, India ranked 85th, sharing it with five other countries, including the Maldives. Despite a reduction in rank due to worldwide movements, India’s score fell only one point from the previous year, landing at 39 on a scale of zero (very corrupt) to 100 (extremely clean).

Denmark topped the CPI-2023 with a score of 90, keeping its lead for the sixth straight year. Finland and New Zealand finished second and third, with scores of 87 and 85, respectively.

Somalia ranked last, followed by Venezuela, Syria, South Sudan, and Yemen, all of which are dealing with long-term problems, primarily military wars.

Regarding India’s tiny decline in score from 40 to 39 in the current index, Transparency International argues that the swings are minor, making it difficult to draw clear conclusions regarding significant improvements.

However, the report emphasises a narrowing of civic space in India, particularly with adopting the Telecommunications Bill, which may pose a danger to fundamental rights ahead of the elections.

Transparency International underlined that the CPI-2023 results showed modest progress in combating public sector corruption internationally, with the average global score remaining steady at 43 for the twelfth consecutive year and more than two-thirds of nations scoring below 50.

The average CPI score in Asia-Pacific (APAC) has remained at 45 for five years. India’s score of 39 fell below the regional average.

In the Asia-Pacific area, New Zealand ranks third with a score of 85, while Singapore and Australia rank fifth and fourteenth, respectively, with scores of 83 and 75. Pakistan and China, India’s neighbours, earned 29 (rank 133) and 42 (rank 76) respectively in CPI-2023.
