Bribe to obtain refund!!

Reported on August 19, 2011 from Chennai , Tamil Nadu  ι Report #31651

I filed my IT returns and did not receive the refund that was due. The refunds were not paid for years 2007, 2008 and 2009. When approached, the personnel at IT department casually said that they might have lost the paperwork and asked me to provide copies.

When I returned with the copies of the paper work, the official said that he could process the refund if I paid a whopping 50% of the refund amount that is due as bribe.

The official wanted Rs. 25,000/- to process a refund of Rs. 48,782/-. I did not yield and did not pay the bribe.

This anti-public behavior should stop and personnel in public service should be held accountable.

Go Team **********!!
