JE asked Rs.18000/ for a new domestic electricity connection

Reported on July 13, 2012 from Lucknow , Uttar Pradesh  ι Report #31289

I have applied for a new domestic electricity connection in Town Pali at District Hatdoi. when approached JE i was asked to pay Rs.1300./- as bribe. when i denied i was given an estimate of Rs.18000/-. there are many who have taken connection by paying Rs.1300/- and in turn they are allowed to use electricity without any proper connection. people are taking connection from the near road side electricity pole. no electricity poles have been provided in the area. now the JE is putting all the estimates of Poles and cables on by application. if it is necessary then it should be divided among all residents in the area. its over 6 months and i m still without a connection. now he is not even ready to give me a connection by paying Rs.1300/- extra. is there any governing body to take care of all such things?
