Bribe asked to renew the passport.

Reported on June 13, 2011 from Bareilly , Uttar Pradesh  ι Report #7460

I went to passport office and requested for renewal of my passport during my trip to India from UAE. Passport Officer immediatedly cancelled my current passport in hurry and then only informed me that new passport would be ready after three months as PP Authority is over loaded. I informed him that I am living in UAE and on vist to India for one month. If you would have informed me that it will take 3 months. I would have renewed in UAE. But PP Officer understood that the prey is under trap. Then, I requested him to process my request on Tatkal basis. He refused to accept application under TATKAL ********** and asked Rs. 3500/- bribe to accept the request under this category.
Finally, I paid him Rs 3000 as a bribe and Rs. 2500 for TATKAL ********** and got my work done in 2-3 days. On that day onwards, I never renewed my Passport in INDIA and getting renewal thru INDIAN EMBESSY, ABU DHABI only.
