I had applied for my child passport in ghaziabad PSK and I already received the passport in 15 days. The post man demanded Rs 500 to deliver the passport. I simply refused to pay him and asked him if you will not deliver the passport then better face the complaint which I am going to file against you. The next day he delivered the passport without uttering a word.
Then Police came for verification at home, taken all documents and signature and asked me to visit the police station. At police station sub inspector Veer Singh demanded me verification fees Rs 500 and it is mandatory. I questioned him please show me the rules where it is written that I have to pay for police verification. Then he started making me believe that this fees goes to higher officials for easy process of application. I said I am in no hurry and you please proceed with your pace. But I will not pay a single penny to you. If you show me the rules then I will definitely pay and will ask for receipt also. He looked angrily at me and then said people give money because they are happy that they received the passport. So I said well I am not happy with the system and will not pay you.
He said ok and I came back to home.
I had purchased a running restaurant in 33rd cross jaynagar, bangalore in feb 2011(Panda Restaurant) for Rs 20,00,000/-. In next 2 months I spent another Rs 15 lacs for renovation. When I went to obtain corporation licence for the restaurant, the Medical Officer there Dr Shiva Swamy (Mobile No 9480684211), who limps while walking demanded and took Rs 1 lac from me and additional Rs 5000/- for some other service. Having invested about Rs 35 lakhs I had no other option. Anyway I suffered heavy losses in the hotel business and had to close it down. Bad results and bad experience when you leave your principles. A lesson for every one.
i had lodged a complain on 4/4/2013 against a forgery been committed. then the IO rajeshwar prasad took 12000 for investigating the case.in his absence the inquiry was given to Mahendra singh of Agam Kuan Thana.he forcibly took 4000 just to listen to my complain.....i paid him again 8000 today just to file an FIR.....the SHO took 20000 and started giving false promises that my case will be sorted out
They asked Rs.500 for verification after giving all documents with original in chadchan police station and they said its not for them thier higher officials it seems.so finally i ended with giving 500 rupees.
Riding back home from work, completely sober, at 12.30 A.M., I got stopped by two policemen in khakis. For no reason at all. I wasn't speeding, my lights are perfectly working. When I asked them why I was stopped they said it was for vehicle checking which I know to be banned/illegal or what not. Anyways they looked at my license, with everything in order they tried stalling for time and finding fault. They then asked for my bike documents which are in my under seat storage, the lock for which is broken. Anyways long story short, it ended with one of them, Manjunath J, openly asking for some money so we could be "dosts" or else I'd be taken to the station to pay the fine for not possessing documents that are in my bike. To be noted these guys seemed to be with the Indiranagar station. The other cops name was Chenappa K Baradur.
It's not the first time this has happened and it is a common open secret about the bias with Delhi registered car in Chandigarh. Has happened to me earlier as well and only way out is to pay.
This instance it was around 7 PM, had been driving for last 6 hours and Delhi was still 3-4 hours drive, a cop stopped us at a traffic junction, like other traffic on road. The. He just looks at the number plate, waves other traffic to move and pulls us aside asking for papers (which were in order), then he says that the front passenger is not wearing the seat belt. Which was funny to the extent that the person had taken the belt off to get up to step out to show papers. Surprisingly he never asked for my license, but said ay 600 for not wearing the belt!! Or you can stay here and argue and then maybe come to station!! Settlement INR 200.00
