Total bribe of Rs 1700 Paid Towards Passport Police Verification in Kolkata

Reported on January 2, 2018 from Kolkata , West Bengal  ι Report #174435

We paid Rs 500 each for three passports of our family members earlier today the same person at the same police station. We received our passports without any hassle. However, this time, we did not have Rs 500 so we paid him Rs 200 which we had. Mr Hussain accepted it saying that 500 was the minimum amount still he'll try to do the work. Sadly, our file has not been cleared as yet, although all documents have been submitted and we have also received an IP (International Passport) No. after successful document submission. The current status of our application still shows that police verification is pending.

The following are the required details :

a) Passport File Number : CA2060806116317
b) Application Reference Number (ARN) : 17-1012297713
c) International Passport (IP No.) Number : 17024
d) Police Station Concerned : Bally Police Station
e) Police Verification Officer : RAJIB KUMAR PAUL (Ph No. 9830985413)
f) Police Verification Officer Work Delegated to: Mr. Hussain
g) Bribe Collected By: Mr. Hussain (On behalf of Mr. RAJIB KUMAR PAUL)
) Police Verification Conducted on: Dec 24,2017.
h) Time of Police Verification at Police Station : 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm

Please make a surprise visit at the Police station any day. You will find every single person paying a minimum of Rs 500 to Rs 2000 as bribe after submitting their documents. On the day we paid our visit, a student was asked to pay Rs 2000 while another boy was demanded Rs 500. Both of them paid Mr Hussain the amount to get the work done. Please note here that Mr Hussain might be a constable or perhaps a layman and he is being delegated the work of accepting bribes by SBO SI RAJIB KUMAR PAUL who is the actual police official who is supposed to conduct the Police verification.

If you do not intervene in this regard, it is least likely that this menace will ever remain checked and my passport's status will remain as "police verification pending"

Thanking you in advance for your help.
