Pay black money for your white money!
By Manisha Yadav
Imagine you need to bribe someone to get your own salary!
Ridiculous though this sounds, it has sadly been the reality in the case of many of our respondents.
A Hyderabadi revealed on our portal that his father had to pay a bribe of Rs 400 each month to get his own salary. The school teacher had to grease the palms of the clerk in his school for it. Our respondent revealed that bribing the clerk was common among most teachers.
Another respondent, a teacher from Bharuch, Gujarat shared his incident of having to pay a huge sum of Rs 15,000 to a clerk in the District Education Office to collect his salary which was due for the last eight months. Surprisingly, these touts loot many people at one go: http://www.ipaidabribe.com/bribe-central/bribe-get-your-salary-time.
