Abstract: In our research we took the case study of a Government housing scheme implemented by Karnataka’s Rajiv Gandhi Rural Housing Corporation Limited (RGRHCL). The scheme aims at providing housing for the socially and economically backward sections of the society. This scheme chooses beneficiaries (person who gets the benefit of the scheme) that own land but are extremely poor to construct houses for themselves and provide monetary aid to them to construct houses. During the implementation of this scheme, corruption prevails at different levels. Due to this the actual needy people do not receive the required aid. To overcome this drawback Karnataka Government has introduced many automations that have substantially decreased the corruption level and at the same time has led to crores of savings. Our research focuses on these automations which vary from the use of digital signature certificate to using GPS.
