I was driving my Honda City from Karol Bagh towards Gurgaon on 8th June 2013 around 6:00 P.M. and I was stopped by two police personnel on their yellow motorcycle near ASA RAM Ashram next to Rabindra Rangshala. One Police personnel left with the motorcycle and the other one named Balwant Singh asked for my papers of the car. As I had all the papers he said I was having commercial goods in the car and I will be fined for Rs. 2000/- I told him that I had just two Tyres of my SUV but he kept on insisting that I had to pay fine (though he was not from traffic police). I asked him to hold on and opened my Ipad and connected to the traffic police site, where the fine was just Rs. 100/- only and that too for commercial use not for personal use.
As he was not from traffic police and was just trying to extract Rs. 1000/- he got pissed as he had no right to ask for traffic challaan. Finally his other partner returned and they both left on their motorcycle.
I lost my I Card.I went to Bistupur Police Station Jamshedpur to do a FIR against my lost IGNOU I Card.First the police man(not in uniform,wearing spectacles and have a hearing aid on his left ear) take near about half an hour to read my 10 line document.Then he pass it to the other police man and that police man re-certified that it is Ok.Again he return back the paper to the first policeman.He put a seal to that paper and very short sign.And he return back the paper and when i asked for FIR number he ask me straight way Rs.200.I deny to provide him the money.He told me come after 3 days then you will get it . Then i though if i will not bribe him i will get the harassment. I ,myself felt guilty to provide the policeman Rs.200 but there was no other alternative for that point of time.After paying Rs.200 ,I got the FIR no within minutes.
It’s common for bachelors how move from their home town to other state/place for jobs. I was in Kolkata and thought of making food for myself at my place. Have gone to the office from where i can get gas connection. But they start showing rules and process. Finally i decided and asked him on his face, is there any way?
The answer was you can get it in black. I paid 5000 Rs for new gas and stove. Every month i was paying 800 for new cylinder.
I lost my wallet at shivaji nagar bus stand. Went to commercial street police station to launch a FIR. Was expecting that police will ask for money to launch a FIR. But I was wrong. The police men didn’t ask for any money and also guided me on how can I apply for duplicate DL and PAN
Lost my admit card just before my exam. Gone to police station to launch a FIR. Shamelessly he asked for Rs.200 to give the copy. No other way as I need it to get the duplicate id card or else i would not be allowed to sit in exam.
It’s hard to get driving license especially if you are from Jharkhand.
1st of all if you want to apply, you have to go through an agent. Generally getting a driving license doesn’t cost more than Rs.800, but the broker charged Rs.2000.
I didn’t have to go through any driving test. I just signed a paper and got my driving license
Was caught for rash driving by traffic police. He took my license and told me to collect it from RTO.
Next Day in RTO Office - officer asked me do u want to pay the fine? Then we have to put a red mark on your license. After 3 red marks your license will be cancelled and you have to again apply for new license.
The amount that I need to pay for rash driving was Rs.400+ but I paid Rs700 and that too without receipt and any red mark.
