Not sure what you mean. My response highlighted some bribery issues associated with US companies in the past and the resulting legislation.

If my company hired a "non-US local consultant" it will show up under the contract. If the company paid for the "local consultant" off the books, they are leaving themselves open to some severe consequences including jail time for the responsible executives.

Yes indeed. Much "third world'' business is carried out in a similar manner.

It's just part of the culture, and there's little,realistically, that can be done about it.

India is not the USA however there was once a time when the US was a byword for political and financial corruption and an honest politician was once defined as one who stays bought. Standards have improved (and the corrupt have found cleverer ways of concealing their corruption)
