India: Corruption Of Rural Teachers

Lekhni at The Imagined Universe talks about an ingenious method of corruption by some teachers from rural areas of India – they bribe to get themselves suspended from their jobs so that “they would keep receiving 50 per cent of the monthly salary (without working) and pursue other lucrative jobs.”

    How? Does it means they bride to keep 50% salary from existing job but they can find an another full or part time job on order to get 2nd salary? If so, this is not a ingenious method any more because this method has existed for a long time in other countries. I don’t understand. Please describe.
