Paid bribe to Customs
Railway Police  |  Customs, Excise and Service Tax Rs 2,000
This is happened in Hyderabad airport when i was returning from US.
I was carrying One laptop (official which i have carried to US from India itself, also having official letter from Office) One I-phone which is in use from past 5 months and one new tablet which costs less than 25K INR.
As per customs i'm allowed to carry with out paying any customs duty in India for that 25K worth of tablet.
But just by looking all these security officer ask me to go and ********** customs officer and he didn't leave 2 Liter Whiskey bottles from the scan machine and confused me to go to customs officer with out collecting those.
Once i went to customs officer he was arguing with me that i'm not supposed to carry all those and i had to pay more than 10K customs duty. I was arguing with him saying i'm allowed to carry these with out paying any customs duty. He is not ready to accept that. Finally, he ask me to pay 50 USD. I've showed him my wallet and said i don't have more than 17 USD. Finally he ask me to put that in my passport and pass it to one of the other officer. The other officer who took my passport has dropped the money in the box under his table and returned my passport.
I was wonder the way that Customs officer collected the money. What a shame......
Basically, it appeared to me like, they are interested in how many electronic goods the passengers are carrying but not on the security.
In that situation i totally forgot about the two Whiskey bottles which the security officer didn't leave from the scanner.
Over all i've lost 87 USD
