    Abstract

    Corruption is associated with the human civilization and it is a global phenomenon. It is largely found in the ASEAN countries. With a view to finding this truth, a study was done in a union parishad of Bangladesh and finds a lot of malpractices are there. In order to combat it, there are some important laws such as Prevention of Corruption Act, 1947; Independent Anti-Corruption Commission Act, 2004, Penal Code, 1870, the Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1954 etc. But unfortunately, these laws aren't effectively implemented due to lack of good governance. However, this study examines the nature of corrupt practices in the union parishad in Bangladesh based on the primary and secondary sources.
