In South Asian nations, corruption continues to be a major obstacle to effective governance. In the context of South Asian countries, this study examines the effects of corruption on several aspects of governance, such as efficacy, the rule of law, the caliber of regulations, political stability, and accountability. Data from a thorough evaluation of governance indicators are studied using regression analysis and correlational approaches to determine the links between governance factors and corruption. The results show that in South Asian nations, corruption seriously compromises a number of dimensions of good administration. In particular, corruption shows detrimental impacts on political stability, the rule of law, the quality of regulations, and the management of corruption itself. On the other hand, elements like efficacy and the rule of law become important variables in the fight against corruption and the advancement of good governance. Nonetheless, the effect of accountability on corruption seems to be less significant, indicating the necessity for additional research into the mechanisms underlying it within the framework of governance. These findings highlight the critical need to combat corruption as a primary barrier to establishing effective governance in South Asian countries. To effectively address corruption, policymakers and stakeholders need to give priority to activities aimed at fostering accountability mechanisms, strengthening legal frameworks, and improving transparency. South Asian nations can set the path for better governance procedures, sustainable development, and fair socioeconomic progress in the area by taking a holistic approach to combating corruption.
