I stay in USA. My passport was expiring in Feb 2013. I sent passport to Indian Embassy Chicago for renewal in Feb 2013.
After inquiring with Chicago Embassy I came to know that A confirmation is pending from Ghaziabad regional passport office in U.P.
As per the process it is required to validate original issued passport from issuing authority.
Indian Chicago embassy sent many faxes and email to ghaziabad RPO but no response. I retrieved copy of fax from the Indian embassy and sent details to my family to see what is happening as per the suggestion from Indian embassy.
Why my family visited ghaziabad RPO office officer in charge K.K. Aggarwal asked for Rs. 50,000/- bribe. My family asked me what to do? I said no bribe. I called Indian embassy and mentioned same.
Indian embassy is looking into the case and trying to solve it at their level and suggested to file complaint against the person.
Because of this issue I cannot visit Indian in my kids summer vacation.
Such people DESERVE Capital punishment because such crimes are worst than murder because these are social menace.
I would like to know how can we bring such people to justice. I am ready to do what is needed.
Hi, This is a very urgent matter for all the students studying in the Muthukumaran medical college in chennai. Management is asking for 75000 rs as exam fees instead of just 1500 rs and they are not ready to give a receipt and asking them to pay immediately before 21st of this June. Can any one please take it forward and report it to certain authorities or else the students life will be spoiled.
I had to got for my passport renewal as it was going to expire. After 3 online appointments , I finally completed the office formalities. After 2 weeks I was called for verification to Palam Vihar police staion. The officer gave me a form to fill up and get it signed from 2 neighbours. I immediately went and got it signed from my land lord and one colleague of mine in the same locality. While depositing, I game him a copy of ration card and rent agreement. He asked some general questions about my work and all that. After that he told me to sign a paper and it was over. I told him is there anything left. He hinted that 'yaha ka to sab ho chuka hai'. I don't know was it a hint to give some money or was it really over. I again asked him is there anything more to verify. He said no and I told him thank you very much and came back. Today after 3 weeks I got my passport. The postman was trying to extract some money from my wife since I was not at my home but she refused. In the end he has to give it :).
Traffic police at Marina beach end, near light house, pulled over our car for 10% tint on the back window of vehicle. I don't recognise this type of traffic vehicle offense. Fine amount for 1000 (not applicable) but he insisted on 300 off the chit.

I paid Rs.100 bribe to do franking to the document. The person who asked the bribe told that the deed can be franked only on the specific jurisdiction; not in the location where I went. Later he told me that he can get it done; he gave me a form and asked me to fill it and get the document franked.
Conclusion: A document can be franked anywhere in Bangalore.
