Electricity meter transfer to owners' name from builder's name requires 1250 Rs. 'chai-pani'

Reported on November 10, 2011 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #31447

When I initiated transfer of electricity meter in my name from the builder name for my newly bought apartment, the electricity dept - junior engineer, who came for inspection of the site, asked for 1250/- Rs. When refused, he started demanding documents like Khata, Encumberance certificate etc. which are irrelevant and not required.

After a lot of heated arguments and a fake refernce to the chief of the elctricity company (BESCOM) worked well to scare the junior engineer and he straight away signed the report.

What is your reaction after reading this report?
