Maharashtra State Gazetted Officers' Federation, the organisation representing state government officers, has asked its members to 'live within their means' as a measure to curb corruption.

"Spirituality and a hunger for being studious and sportive can help do away with evils like corruption which otherwise can easily take grip of the empty minds," chief secretary Swadheen Kshatriya said while addressing a gathering at an Anti-bribery Sensitisation programme in Mumbai.

The programme was organised for employees held by the Federation on Thursday.

'Live within your means so that you don't need extra money' is the theme of the campaign by the federation. By bringing all corruption cases in the public domain through its website, the Anti-corruption Bureau had done a commendable job, he said.
