Bribe to Revenue Officer to get Batankan Certificate mandated for Digital Land Registration

Reported on October 20, 2018 from Raipur , Chhattisgarh  ι Report #191134

I had prepared Land Registration document completely as per requirement for a small plot of 2400 sq ft. My Land Registration was denied by Property Registration Officer on 21st July 2018 by telling me that yesterday new rule have come to restrict registration without Digital Batankan Report of Land. I approached Tehsil Office, Raipur, Chhattisgarh to get the required certificate. Tehsildar denied to take my application and direct it to Revenue Inspector. Later on order was issued that RI has been given power to directly give Batankan Certificate of any land. I've been following up myself as well as via an Agent with XXXX. She demanded for Rs 10,000/- as bribe to do the inspection and give me certificate. I didn't have any choice other than agreeing to her. She has been showing herself to be ultra busy personality since last 4 months and have not been completing the survey and issuing certificate. I'm not the only person who has been suffered but there are many who have suffered. Finally I was issued the Land Batankan Khasra Naksha on October 17 2018. The last date of stamp validity of Rs 1 Lakh plus is 21st October 2018. Even the Seller is outstation hence this registration might not be executed in spite of so many hassles and bribe. This is the real status of Chhattisgarh Revenue Department. This is normal process for all the Revenue Department work and not a single work can be completed here without bribe.
