Bribe for New residential permit

Reported on January 11, 2011 from Trivandrum , Kerala  ι Report #28894

I was asked to come couple times to collect the application form as the overseer responsible to distribute forms has gone for lunch till 4 pm. I had to slip in a few 10 Rs to get the application form.

once this was submitted, they were not ready to come and inspect the site and provide approval. After employing a local aquaintance to help me, he got the job done in a few hours by taking the overseer to the site. The bribe was paid to the Panchayat secretary (a lady) and the overseer (a gent).

What is your reaction after reading this report?
