I faced the problem bringing 40" LED TV from bangkok.At Mumbai International Airport,I was given some fare calulcation to pay some random amount of rs.10000 as custom duty and ask me they will let me go by paying Rs. 3000 and When I refused to pay single penny I was threatened that we are detaining your goods and I said ok you can and everything was checked under scan to ensure there is nothing else in LED box,then I was again requested by custom officer that one police guy will come with your passport just put 3000 in white Bag and that moment I realized that they had detained my passport which I gave them at the custom desk to verify my details and I started shouting that I will go to Police and lodge FIR because you are detaining my passport instead of goods(why because as per you I haven't paid duty),then few senior custom officers came to me and ask me why are you shouting and ask me answer my question have you paid the duty ? I told him answer my question where is it written that if you don't pay custom duty your passport will be detained and he had no answer and asking me about paying bribe as I was the only passenger left during that time,I refused to pay single penny and I snatched the passport from that police constable and I told him if you don't know the value of this document(passport) don't touch otherwise next time you will be in big trouble and I started walking with my LED and luggage.Other customer officer started shouting at me and said that guy is going without paying customs and then I said if you want custom duty come and answer to police why did you detained my passport.Finally he didn't even dare to take a single step.
Fine for parking in a No Parking Zone is Rs. 100/- and towing charges are Rs. 200/- in case of a 4 wheeler. Not sure about 2 wheeler, but guess it is Rs. 100/- or Rs. 50/-. I have been in circumstances when I had to pay this fine and everytime I received two receipts for Rs. 100 + Rs. 200. All payments were made directly to the Traffic Officer and no Chai Pani was demanded. This is in Mumbai and Thane.
On 21 May 2013, 2:15 PM I was asked by the policeman to pay a bribe of 1000 Rupees as a part of police verification for passport. I tried giving 500, but he insisted on 1000.
I had to pay it because getting a passport is important, and I don't want any obstructions from police.
I lost my driving license.I went to rto and the procedure was to complex and long even no one was answering properly.i moved from window to window and one security person came to me and say give me 500 and will get work done in 5 min. as i was on half day leave i have to paid such amount!!
auto Fare of Patna Junct ionto Hajipur is 20 rs, but at midnight they were asking 40-50 rs. first All auto drivers refused drivers refused to go to show the lack of services. But then I noted that Railway's Auto Stand conductor took 60 rs from the driver and without any bill (actual charge is 20 rs) so I realized its not completely drives fault.
And I indirectly paid 20 rupees as Bribe.
