Hoysala Police On their rounds not to fight crime but collecting Hafta from the shops in Shivajinagar area..This one is from a scrap dealer. I see them every day and feel disgusted. All the money spent on this special task force is being misused so badly.
Today near Begumpet I parked my Car at foothpath, being foothpath is broken and no body able to use, I parked it. "Others car also parked at there"
Later I found, Cops put Tyre Lock in my car, and left a chit with PS mobile number : I called to PS, he said : ok I will send my "bachaa"
some homeguard came after 15 min and he asked me give 200/- I said give me receipt I will give you money, he started southing than I called to PS, he said come to me, I will give you receipt.
We all 3 took auto and reached to PS, He asked my name & father's name to fill in the receipt, and took 200/- .
Now I have questions :
1. In the back side challan amount return 50/- to 200/- (max), why he charged me 200/- even in Sanjay dutt case court gives min. period of Jail.
2. How to judge that the receipt is original and money is going in right account. any one can print fake receipt book like others are doing. where to approach to cross check.
3. Who is responsible to repair foothpath's it is broken and ideal, why not use for parking of Cars
I went for a new vat registration. First i Paid 500/- as Registration fees for which i got a reciept. after that for 7 days no one from their side came for verification hence i went up and called them to my business place. After that next day i went to CTD office, their i paid 6025 rs. for which i got reciept(5000 deposit,1000 professional tax), after that a caseworker who made those reciept asked me to pay him he told me that i should pay him 800/- i refused..so he kept my file in between of old files n dint even return it n threatened me that "you will be coming back for paying taxes...i vl see u then",after that i had to pay him 500 to get my file back, then comes the inspector, and she asked for 1000/-, and then ACCT he asked 1500/-,then the person who prints Certificate for her 300/-,then for peeyon 100 rs. so overall i paid 3400 rs as bribe. without which they would have not even touched my file. and i think this is the same story in all commercial taxes department.
I was in urgent need for my passport as I had to go abroad for work purpose and it seemed like my application wasn't being processed because of a computer error. I bribed an official through an agent and received my passport within a week.
The passport seva kendras have automated the passport application process and co-ordinate with the local police for background checks. In my case, they wrongly sent the background check request to a different police zone(I live in Hyderabad, which has two police zones) and was stalled for almost two months.
Today I went to the bbmp office at chennamanakere achukattu office to obtain the birth certificate of my daughter.

But the application was done 3 months back.
