The legislative regime in India for prevention and penalization of corruption is stringent. With multiple statutes in place to prevent corruption among public officials as well as private bodies including companies. Currently, India’s anticorruption laws lack extraterritorial jurisdiction over cases of illicit gratification and payments made to foreign officials or employees employed by public international organizations. The aim of this article is to make a comparative analysis of international trends and legislations pertaining to prevention of corruption with the Indian regime, as a key step towards better policy formulation.
