I wanted to regularised my BWSSB water connection in my residence…

Reported on March 4, 2014 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #39848

I wanted to regularised my BWSSB water connection in my residence Someswara Layout, Bilekahalli, Bangalore. I filled up the Sakala Form along with all required documents, reached the BWSSB office. Instead of accepting the form the officer directed me to a plumber and the plumber discussed with me in detail and asked Rs. 8000/- and negotiated to Rs. 5000/- over and above the official expenses. I asked him why I should pay additional amount as I am paying the official charges and also I have all the documents with me. He told me it is office expenses, they will be having other office expenses as he is the responsible person to get the connection. I asked him for a receipt for the Rs. 5000/- he told me he cannot give a receipt either as it is an unofficial amount for official work. I refused to give the money. He refused to do the work, I went back to the officer, he called the plumber inside and negotiated and told me to pay the amount and get the work done. I refused and com back. Still my work is pending, I did not even able to submit the application. I tried this 3 times, and left it as I am loosing my leave for a task which is impossible without a bribe. YOU CAN PUBLICISE THIS WITH OUT MY NAME AS THEY MAY HARASS ME AND I MAY NOT GET WATER EVEN AFTER THAT.
