When I purchased a flat in Chennai, I paid some money to the builder to get Water, electricity,etc etc... I believe the builder charged Hugh money from me to pay the bribe for getting these facilities to my flat..
I needed a POA to be registered and without an agent it was impossible to register. So have to catch the local agent at that office who is also part-time unofficial employee of that registration office.
This is with regards to my friends case, the names which I would rather wouldn't like to share. He had been to the Madiwala Police Station to register a FIR for the theft of his two Indane Gas Cylinders recently. But to just lodge an FIR for the loss he was charged Rs 200 & the term used to collect this money is, its a Fee. God knows which all Police Stations in bangalore have this tendency of collecting fees & what are their rates to lodge an FIR. I'm happy that there is a website were I or a common citizen could post their woes in their day to day life. It is really getting pathetic day by day bcos of the rampant corruption. God save us.......
i went with all the required documents to get driving license, but they asked me 500 to get the passed certificate even though i cleared the tests, they simply told me they will not issue the license if not paid
I paid 200 Rs. because I refused to pay more. The cops could see I was well to do, I could see they saw that as an opportunity. I had to get my passport verification done. I needed the passport in about 3-4 months for my impending GMAT **********.
As soon as the cops knew that, they said it took money to get them do it immediately or they would file it later. This was obviously a ********** and bull story, but one I had no choice but to buy. I couldn't take any chances with the passport.
The cops knew exactly what to be exploit and exploit it. I knew what was happening but was helpless because of my urgency.
BTW: What if the cops want to turn on everyone who registers a story of helplessness and of having to pay a bribe. Paying bribe is a crime after all. Another ace up the governments sleeve. *******
