Read WAT topic:  Scams will resurface if unpunished
 
Punishment deters crime because it reminds people of the pain and suffering they would have to undergo if they committed a certain crime. Scams resurface if culprits are unpunished because then, culprits would have no reason not to commit a crime. 
 
The coal allocation scam or Coalgate has been making headlines for the past few years but it is only in 2014 that there has been significant progress in the case. In fact, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) informed the Supreme Court a few days back that it was ready to file charge sheets in six of the cases within three weeks. It is hoped that those involved in the scam would be severely punished so that others are deterred from committing similar crimes.
 
In the last few years, a number of scams came into light, including the Granite scam in Tamil Nadu, which resulted in the loss of Rs 160 billion, and the Maharashtra Irrigation Scam, which resulted in the loss of Rs 720 billion; sadly, many of these cases have not been closed until now. In fact, the Granite scam and the Maharashtra Irrigation Scam have been under the scanner of investigating agencies for the past two years.
 
There are many such cases in India in which the culprits are not getting punished and this sends a wrong message to criminals. In fact, they will take advantage of the inefficiencies in the system for their personal gain which is illegal. 
 
Crime in general resurfaces if criminals go unpunished. Efficient and effective government systems deter people from committing crimes and inefficient government systems propagate crime. Not only should criminals be punished but the severity of their punishment should be made known to the public to increase their awareness of how criminals are dealt with in the society. Only then will we be able to fight crime.
