I entered Bangalore form Singapore yesterday night. I have some questions about the customs duty.
Case: I brought a TV LG 42LA6120 from Singapore worth S$799 and had a GST return of S$37. I have valid invoice and GST returns invoice for the same.
1. What will be the amount on which the tax will be calculated? Is it S$799 or is it S$762.
2. If the price is $762, then the total cost of the TV is Rs. 34290/- and below my tax limit (SGD is Rs. 45 for yesterday’s rate).
3. If the price that is considered is $799, then the cost of the TV is Rs. 35955/- which means I have to pay tax for only Rs. 955/-
I came across the custom official Mr. Srihari (I noted his name) and his senior official (not sure about his name) who calculated the price of the TV in India instead of the actual price that I had paid in spite of I having all the valid invoices.
Finally, I was let over after being asked to pay Rs. 739/- after around 2 hours.
Sir, it is not about the Rs. 739/- that I have paid, it is how ashamed I was when I JUST stepped into my country. Moreover, I saw he (and his senior official) taking bribes from almost everyone; just everyone. What a bad feeling I had just when I stepped into my country. And moreover, when I paid Rs. 800/- the officer refused to pay me the change back, when I asked, he says rudely “why don’t you get the change; you can get a TV, but not the change”.
I haven’t had this kind of treatment in any country that I entered; what an embarrassing situation it is, when you are being treated like this. This has to change!
I have a Jharkhand passing car which i m driving in Ahmedabad. I had taken a "U" turn at Helmet Cross Roads where I couldnt spot the no U turn sign. To be hones the next u turn on that road comes after 1km. I paid the bribe to get my lazy ass away from a small fine of Rs. 300.
I asked for fine and the Havaldar said "Bhai pachaas apo ane nikdo khali khotu traffic na ubhu rakho".
He didnt even bother to ask for my DL.
I haven't commuted on that road since. But I'm still vary if th no u turn sign is there or not.
Hyderabad, Domalguda, Mee seva office registration center.
I went there with my kids and spouse for Aadhaar enrollment the UIDAI agent sitting there would do the registration at the same time if paid bribe else she would give a date to come back in a couple of weeks.
I had hired a Meru Cab in Mumbai and we were travelling on Char Rasta, Wadala in the afternoon on an empty road. Suddenly a traffic policeman came out from hiding to stop us. The driver paid a bribe of Rs. 50. I personally was perplexed on what is to be done. Should I stop the transaction which will result in Rs. 100 fine on the poor man plus the bigger hassle to going to police station or not get involved. Sad to say, I choose the easier path.
I had no option except to pay the police a bribe of Rs. 4000 to get my police verification done ASAP since my report was stuck at the station for over a month and I was supposed to travel within 10 days. This really sucks.
