History is the witness of whistleblowers in India. Maharaja Nand Kumar was the first blower of British India. He was a revenue officer under the Nawab of Bengal. Nand Kumar blowed whistle against Governor General Hastings that he accepted bribes from nawabs and others. A British judge presided over Nand Kumar's forgery case and he was hanged in full public view at the banks of Hoogly River near Kolkata. This story sums up that how dangerous it is to blow a whistle in India. Blowing whistle in India can carry high personal risk, particularly when there is very little protection. In vocabulary of Corporate Governance, the term ‘Whistle blowing’ is a recent addition but it is an old phenomenon. This paper focuses on ‘Why it is so hard in India’ to blow a whistle.
