I was forced to pay bribe

Reported on April 23, 2011 from Nellore , Andhra Pradesh  ι Report #9055

I have approached sub-registrar for the copy of some property documents.
They made me to wait till evening where it takes hardly 20 min. What suprised me was they are not willing to work, all the work they keep pending till evening and they are working just 2 hours a day. Till evening they are trying to negotiate the bribes keeping brokers. At the end they had demanded 1500 once the documents are ready. I was reluctant and offered just 200 after some argument. They had kept the documents inside and asked me to wait. Finally i have paid 1000 rupees.
The team work and coordination I could see is in demanding bribes and not in the work they do. All the staff were behaving like, it is their right being a Govt employee.
