I am part of prestigious organisation, which provide training to students and try to place them. This time I got a training from Labour department. After providing training to 200 students for 2 months. Labour officer came of inspection and asked us to pay 10% of total fees. My organisation denied to pay the same. But labour officer has threatened us to create issues. My director is not ready to pay a single rupee. This will cause loss of our total fees which is more than 4 lacs.
The RTO Electronic City branch is in shambles. Filthy sacks of cement lie along with broken chairs, dumped under a horrible stand, the only place to keep papers on, that you have to sign. I have been driving for over 30 years. Since my return to India, I wished to renew my expired license. I loathe the experience. No clear chart about how much to pay, and for what. You have to trust an agent when he says "Ma'am, they may fail you because..." "Up to you ma'am, how much do you want to pay? Then everything will be taken care of." I loathe that citizens have to be in this ugly dilemma. I HATED the place so much I paid up never to come there again. The 'driving test' was a farce. The inspector didn't see how well I drove. I didnt get any feedback. Pass? Fail? The agent told me I passed because of the money I gave them. Who pocketed it? I don't know.
I am ready to pay even Rs2000 for renewal but it must be CLEAR AND TRANSPAREnt what I am paying for. And that the money goes to IMPROVING the filthy public premises. What a shame.
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.
