leakage in public spending was among the highest in India; indeedbuccaneering accumulation has become a way of life in the state Let alone being stigmatisedthose who indulged in these practices were held in awe Over the yearsaccumulation through corruption gradually reached cancerous proportions Only recently has it come to be viewed with revulsion The powerful constituency it createdwhich forestalled development in the stateis now in retreat In pursuit of transparencydetails of public functionaries assets were put on state government websites The local area development fund for legislatorsa great source of corruptionhas recently been abolished Furtherthe bold initiative of enacting the Prevention of Corruption Act and Right to Service Act may decisively change the states rent-seeking profile The first law relates to the state government confiscating property disproportionate to an individuals income The second relates to state functionaries providing services to citizens within a stipulated timeso that rent-seeking can be prevented Earlierrent seekers could accumulate with abandonand even the most blatant cases got either inconsequential censureor at besta suspension order Additionallytheir illegal accumulation was not touched These laws now promise to change that situation The leakages of public spending in Bihar had a peculiar characternot seen elsewhere in this country Herethe funds for state programmes either relating to agriculture or animal husbandry or the social sectorwould be siphoned off for private accumulation right at the input stage Secondlysuch private accumulationeven if of a buccaneering characterwas not invested within the stateas was the case in Indonesia; insteadit would often be transferred outsideas was the case in the Philippines With their limited knowledge of capital marketsdomestic or internationalthe looted resources of the state were generally invested in real estate in metropolitan cities Unlike in the ryatwari and mahalbari tenurial systems in some parts of India before Independencethe social position of an individual in Bihar was measured not in terms of his place in the incentive structurebut in terms of his capacity to weaken the state structure through leakages In the processBihars society developed a preference for accumulation through input-related leakage In the post-Independence periodmost scams were input-relatedlike the cooperativefodder or recruitment scams Unfortunatelyeven though scamsters accumulated in plentythis money did not go into industrial investmentand only promoted conspicuous consumption For exampleone initiator of the fodder scam in Bihar allegedly chaartered a planefilled with relationsattendants and minionsto fly to Australia for a surgery Someone else was said to have accumulated so much wealth that he had to float a bank to legitimise his resources Developed states have reached that status by carving a productive accumulation path It is not that corruption is absent; in terms of magnitudescams are possibly larger Howeverinput-related scams are almost unthinkablebecause they would take away the state from the grammar of incentive structure that is a pre-condition for a capitalist transformation Instead of input scamsthese states have witnessed post-production scamscharacterised by turnover based profit-sharing arrangementsensuring their growth After the present political dispensation took over in 2005public investment leapfrogged The social-sector outlay also increased manifold Bihars society and ramshackle state werepossiblynot prepared for such high amounts of capital inflow At the same timevigilant people in the state were also not prepared to allow public money to be frittered away Thuswhile interpreting the world is an easy propositionworking out the nuts and bolts of change is difficult that tooat great personal risk Unlike ordinary criminalsit is not easy to tame the white-collar lawbreakers who are part of the power structure Figures like Jayaprakash Narayan and Anna Hazare have fulminated against corruption but Nitish Kumar has stolen their thunder by actually reining in
