The bribe amount kept increasing!

Reported on March 16, 2019 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #200741

Name of officer(s): not sure - desk number 4 at BBMP office behind Upparpet police station
Date and time: Mar 16th 2019, between 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

I went to the BBMP office and filled all the forms needed to get my birth certificate issued (I was born in 1986).

1. They wanted my school certificate with parents name, but I studied through ICSE and ISE, both of which don't print parents names on the certificate. I could give any other document with my birth date and parents name (Aadhar, passport), but the officials at the BBMP office refused to accept these documents unless I paid a bribe of RS 2000 to them. The lady at desk number four on the first floor and her supervisor asked for this.

2. On thier records, you had my father's spelling incorrectly listed. To correct this, the same lady and her supervisor asked for RS 5000 bribe and I would get everything done on the same day.

I refused to pay their bribes and left without receiving any help.

What is your reaction after reading this report?
