This is to report a scam where a PAN Card Agency is charging Rs 500-1000 in name of easy PAN Card without Documents and then not returning any status/PAN Card or Money.
I paid a bribe of Rs 500 (over the Rs 96 fee for New Pan Card)
Unique Associates PAN Service Centre, Plot No. 3870,Rangpuri Mahipalpur and office at Goushala Road, Kishangarh is charging Rs 500-1000 for New PAN Card without Documents.
A domestic house help was in need of a valid ID proof and sadly, our system didn't have a system for such ID Proof. Wanted to get a PAN Application for ID and Banking proof. In absence of any valid ID available for HouseHelp, i saw Advt and approached Vijay Kumar (Unique Associates/Mob:9582074137) for guidance. He told me that for Rs 500-1000 he can get PAN Card without any documents.
He even returned my Residence Address Proof for application. He said, in UTI, money can get your work done.
But after depositing the form with him on April 5th'13, i got a Coupon No on April 10th'13.Post same, nothing has moved and upon followup, he redirected to some UTI Processing Executive called Ashutosh (Mob:9718414406)
UTI office confirmed No Receipt of such application form.
Strongly suspect some Scam/Fraud in which money is collected and then no documents are processed.
When the baggage did not arrive on my inbound flight .. I registered a 45k cost.. The clearance official said that 25000 is the limit and I need to pay tax on the additional 20000. He said there will be lot of paper work required and hefty penalty and took me a dark room. This was the first time I had been asked a bribe so openly. Paid 1000 bucks to avoid missing my connecting flight
My Father had retired from UP Irrigation Dept and was drawing his pension from Chief Treasury Officer Ghaziabad. We lost him in Dec 2012 after short illness. We are residing in Bangalore and my mother came to stay with us after my Father's demise. We were not sure how easy or difficult it will be to get her Family Pension payment initiated.
However, we met the Chief Treasury officer on 21 Apr 2013 and the Family Pension along with arrears was credited to her account by the time we reached back on 01 May 2013.
Total time spent in getting the Family Pension processed was 6-8 Hrs (This includes the delay caused at the Syndicate Bank (where Pension Account is held) rather then the Treasury Office).
May God Bless all the Staff at Chief Treasury Office, Ghaziabad for their professionalism, sympathetic approach and dedication to their Duty.
The busy thoroughfare near Writer's building in Kolkata from where CM of West Bengal operates, the passing Road has been divided into two parts- one for buses only and another for all other vehicles. there is no signage or indication showing the bifurcation leading to new vehicles taking the bus bay. The traffic police has a party time all day long collecting bribes just under the nose of beloved and in suspecting CM. I was extremely surprised to see traffic police harassing people and collecting ransom even on Sunday when there is hardly any traffic or rush to justify such unreasonably behavior. Mr friend was made to pay Rs. 200 in such an instance in March
I am 46 year old doctor now. Applied for a Birth Certificate at MRO Office, Nellore rural mandal, A.P State, along with supporting evidence of my Secondary School Certificate(SSC) and Statements from the reliable residents of my village. Remember, I have requested the certificate with the true birth date mentioned in my SSC based on which my entire studies, service is going on! They kept on postponing for more than 40 days. One of my friend introduced me to a local (ACN) TV Channel reporter saying that the reporter is reliable person to get it done. This TV reporter in fact is also a cheater. i have reported the matter orally to MRO who is also corrupt! Ultimately ended up in paying Rs; 15000/- at different occasions in order to avoid unnecessary delay.
Someone stolen my mobile, I have insurance for that. I went to lodge a complaint and he simply gave an acknowledgement letter and took 700Rs from me. He refused to file an FIR. Madivala police station.
I was travelling from my home town to get admitted into my engineering college, and the train i got reservation for was cancelled because of heavy rains. I got full amount back, and bought a reservation ticket for the next available train and got on that train it.
We were already exhausted, as we were busy in arranging documents required for admission, and it was a night journey on the train and wanted a berth for me and my father travelling on the train.
The TC was upset when i gave a bribe of 40 rupees, and rejected my request outright for a confirmation of berth. Then i had to wait to get some time to get some of his time, and offer 150 to get an RAC confirmation for half the journey time, and a bribe to a second TC for the second of the journey time.
I was called by the local police station to meet the officer for my passport verification. I told that I would return from office and meet him in the evening. Accordingly, I met Mr. Mishra at Sonari police station at about 8.30 p.m. He gave me a seat and bring all the forms by himself (my earlier experience that is to get a almost illegible form to be xeroxed from outside). Mr. Mishra filled the form and asked relevant questions, checked the documents and completed the formalities saying your report will be despatched on the next day morning.. It took less than five minutes!!! I thanked him and get outside of the police station. All verifications were completed within three working days and I got the passport within seven days of application.
This is unimaginable and if this is sustained I believe people will not apply for Tatkal passport!!!
