I Paid a Bribe is a project of Janaagraha – a Bangalore-based non-profit organization. The ‘I Paid a Bribe’ initiative utilizes crowdsourced information to identify instances of corruption across India. Essentially, the project aims to decipher corrupt governmental services and work with local authorities to affect change. By sharing and circulating corruption-related instances amongst the citizenry, the hope is that the Indian government will be influenced into taking action against corruption countrywide.

Information for the project is collected via citizen reports anonymously submitted online.
