Last month to get an address change for my parents, the new police thana and the old one..both asked for money. Rs. 500 per person at new one and Rs 200 for at the old address police thana. It is 2 weeks, the status on passport.gov.in is still with police verification. The police guy did say that pay more if you want us to send the verification back to passport office else there will be some problems in documentation. Hoping that at least now they expedite and send the report. Again this is like a given, if we do not give, the passport police verification will get rejected.
Bribe paid through a stationary shop near Director general of shipping office in Mumbai,for faster processing of you application and sure of not being rejected,if applied legally most likely to be rejected after two months or so,which is a luxary for seafarers to wait that long,sytem has not changed in decades.its a delibrate attempt to harass seafarers for money.
I have spent quite a lot of money in the UK trying to get a driving license, failed once but finally managed to get one. With the driving lessons that I had taken, I applied for Indian license in Jodhpur. So that they do not fail me in the test (Which btw they were hardly looking at), they asked for Rs 1500, and since I had one day to finish it else I would have left back to UK for work, I had to give away this bribe. I was quite angry, but time was important and they apparently gauged that. I wish this process is bribe free, this is one of those things which one has to give something else they won't get license.
I am writing this with pain because at Marathalli Corporation I paid bribe of Rs.5000 for trade license to initiate my business.There is a health officer Mr.********** who does not hesitate to tell you that the money gets distributed till commissioner level.Funny part is when I paid bribe to this health officer (3 years ago) actual trade license fee which was suppoe to be paid for the government was merely Rs.1000 but bribe was Rs.5000. This person sits most of the time at office and when you pay bribe he counts without any hesitation (shame)to ensure the amout is accurate and paid as per the aggreement. I am sure by this time he must have got promoted for his great social work!
I wanted to convert my book license to smart card and when I went to RTO office in Palghar in district Thane, Iwas told to pay rhe fees of Rs. 260, but to my surprise when I checked the reciept It was about Rs. 160. When I checked the receipt of other people s I figured out that they were taking this extra amount from every one for each receipt they wre issuinf.
I applied for my passport almost 3 months ago in Bhopal after which I went for police verification in my city 1 month after I applied. I have paid almost Rs.1500 to various police officials but they still don't seem to take interest in the work inspite of the bribe. The latest bribe I paid was for Rs. 500. I need my passport urgently.

I never paid bribe willingly to get water connection. The govt officials make the situation so difficult and harassing so that I was forced to pay them otherwise I had to keep running behind them for months together.
I, ******* **********, a computer engineer, currently working with an American MNC, had applied for my passport on 18th Jan,2012 [ File No- CA2061359228512, Date of Birth 27/04/1988]. I am a permanent resident of Vill: Hatogobindapur, Burdwan, W.B. since my birth. In the month of March, one D.I.B. inspector, named ******** ****** from Burdwan D.I.B. Office came to my place for police verification. I was in Chennai at that time, my mother submitted all of my documents to him what he wanted. He asked my mother to give him 3000/ bribe in a red envelop. Being a ordinary housewife, my mother paid him the money without informing me. After receiving the money, he refused to do clear my verification report as my Secondary Examination Admit card is bearing Date of Birth 01/03/1989. After returning from Chennai, I went to him and tried to understand that, it is clearly mentioned in the Govt. of India Pass website that, in case of Birth Proof, any one is needed among Birth Certificate and Admit Card. I belong to a remote village, and my school authority put the incorrect Birth date without informing me at the time of Secondary Examination like many other students of our school. Besides, I have submitted my voter card, my birth certificate, PAN card, ration card and all other necessary documents. But, he refused me again and again and asked me for more bribe. My IP no. is 820/2012. My question is. In case of Birth proof, always Birth Certificate has higher priority than the Admit Card. According to Passport site, admit card is not mandatory. And, if it is really a discrepancy, I would not be even allowed to applied for passport. I shall be highly obliged if the case is looked upon as I am in urgent need of the passport for my official purpose. But it’s been almost a year since I applied (complete with all documents provided). My career is going to spoil. Please take necessary steps against that corrupted D.I.B. official. Thanking You, ******* **********, Vill + P.O. Hatgobindapur Dist: Burdwan West Bengal PIN- 713407
