Bribery is defined under Section 171 B of the Indian Penal Code.

It includes:

1.acceptance or giving a gratification to any person with the object of induc­ing him or any other person to exercise any electoral right

2. rewarding any person for having exercised any such right; or accepting it as a reward for exercising any such right

3.  inducing or attempting to induce any other person to do so.

It includes offering, agreeing to give or attempting to procure gratification.

I hope it helps.

Section 171 B of IPC defines Bribery with respect to the offences relating to Elections.

You may also read and refer to Section 7 of the Prevention of the Corruption Act, 1988.
