Tahsil office bribe

Reported on September 12, 2010 from Pune , Maharashtra  ι Report #30821

My city is Kolhapur near Pune MS
We have a open plot @ 3000 sq ft. its land tax was nt paid from the begening ie since 20 years, as the authorities were unable to locate us.This year to get the papers of the property I went to the Tahsildar office, but was informed about the pending amount and immediately a couple of babus contacted me outside the office for settlement.Officially the liability was Rs.15000 which was finally settled to Rs.8000.
After a week I received a govt. receipt of Rs.1000 and the matter was regularised till this year.
I certainly saved a good amount but it always rings in the back of my mind for the wrong I ve done.when read in TOI about this site I typed in my experience.I still keep on wondering for the huge amount going away from govt funds.
Thanks for this site
