We're glad you want to know more about Corruption and Bribery in India. We'll send you a weekly update on the latest happenings on I Paid a Bribe. We promise we won't ever sell or give away your information.
A new Web site — I Paid a Bribe – is allowing Kenyans to share their experiences with bribery. Activists say the site could become a potent weapon in the fight against graft in one of the world’s most corrupt nations.
L'associazione I Paid a Bribe ("ho pagato una tangente"), nata a Bangalore nel 2010, ha raccolto oltre due milioni di denunce sulla corruzione nel subcontinente. Intervista alla presidente Swati Ramanathan dopo le dichiarazioni dell'ex premier sullo scandalo Finmeccanica: "Così crolla la fiducia nelle istituzioni e nel mercato"
Tax evasion is bound to invite trouble but there is further trouble when a bribe demand is much higher than penalty charges. This is generally witnessed in excise/commercial tax evasion. Here is a respondent from Chennai who seeks suggestions on how to deal with his situation as he is threatened to be arrested for the violation by a tax officer.
Are you one of those who can easily identify with a citizen of your same country and are you biased towards to your fellow-men? If so, this might not be worth the feeling. A person of Indian origin lands in India to visit his home but to his dismay faces demands of a bribe by an immigrant officer belonging to India. Officers belonging to the country of which he is a citizen act otherwise.
Challenge in marriage registration emerges when the issuance of the certificate gets delayed due to resistance to bribery from the side of the civilian. Such is the plight of an individual from New Delhi who has been waiting for the service as he seeks the certificate via a clean route. Since there is no set time limit for the issuance of the certificate, do you have any suggestions to the individual on how to obtain his certificate quickly?
The whole point of having an Electronic Clearing Services arrangement, a system that allows citizens to pay off bills directly through your bank, is to ensure prompt payment of bills on the due date. As far as most leading national and private banks are concerned, this function is carried out flawlessly. Yet, a civic authority in Bangalore has qualms in claiming payment of bills, or so they say.
A citizen from Bangalore reports the harassment he has been facing by an employee of the local electricity board. He reportedly shows up at the respondents doorstep, demanding the payment of arrears even though the bank has cleared the pending bills. Such behaviour defeats the purpose of having a service that intends to lessen the trouble involved in paying off bills.
