Corruption is as old as humanity itself. It exists in both the public and commercial sectors, as well as for profit and non-profit companies and philanthropic organizations. Corruption is pervasive in Nepal, affecting every area from the government to the courts, police, health care, and education. Nepal is ranked 117 on Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index for 2021, unchanged from its place in 2020. Corruption is caused by a poor governance structure, ineffective incentives, and a weak civil society. According to a study conducted throughout the country, around 51.09 percent of respondents chose corruption to be the country's most serious problem, resulting in the highest score.
