Bribery at peak in great India


How ridiculous is this…

For every essential  thing in india commoner has to pay bribe. Let me think what a common person has to go thru and pay the monies because there is no choice.

When we are young and want to ride a motorcycle we need license..  So first lesson go thru the agent that mean bribe. Since if you go on your own with all the legit documents like PUC, Insurance, RC/TC book, sales deed.. but no.. you are failed. If you go thru agent the inspector will take some money and wont even bother to take your driving test.

If you get caught by traffic cop then again the proper penalty will cost you say 100 but cop is very happy to let you go for 50. And to clear something here is, you may or may not be at fault.

Then you go to college. Engineering/medical/management. The college owners are mostly political figures. And even of you have sifficient percentage you have to pay donation for new building etc. Which is nothing but bribe.

You are bright student so you pass with good ranks. You are lucky one not to be in touch educational corruption.  And you want to start a business. So you go to shop act department. Even if you have everything you have to PAY the bribe.

There are millions of occasions where you have to pay the bribe to get things done. You have no choice.

Without payoff you may get what you want in few years but the question is can you afford to wait for few years?

There will be a day when these corrupt people will pay for their wrongdoings.

Atleast I am waiting for it.

  1. It is the common people like you who pay the bribes who is at fault for keeping the system alive. Let me take the cases you mentioned:

    “When we are young and want to ride a motorcycle we need license.. So first lesson go thru the agent that mean bribe. Since if you go on your own with all the legit documents like PUC, Insurance, RC/TC book, sales deed.. but no.. you are failed. If you go thru agent the inspector will take some money and wont even bother to take your driving test.”

    I went directly both for motor cycle and then again for car license both times i passed without paying any bribes.

    “If you get caught by traffic cop then again the proper penalty will cost you say 100 but cop is very happy to let you go for 50. And to clear something here is, you may or may not be at fault.”

    Every time I have been stopped by a traffic cop for violating rules, like running a stop sign or turning when no u turn was allowed i have insisted on an official receipt its only people like you who want to beat the system by paying the cop 50 thus saving yourself 50.????

    “Then you go to college. Engineering/medical/management. The college owners are mostly political figures. And even of you have sifficient percentage you have to pay donation for new building etc. Which is nothing but bribe.”

    I was asked to pay 5 lakhs to get a engineering seat and I got 98% 99% 99% in bio, phy and che. I said f*** and joined bsc physics without paying anything other than fees. After that i started my own business and now i am prosperous. It is your fallacy to think that you need an engineering or doctor degree in order to prosper.

    “You are bright student so you pass with good ranks. You are lucky one not to be in touch educational corruption. And you want to start a business. So you go to shop act department. Even if you have everything you have to PAY the bribe.”

    What shop act? I never registered for any shop act and when they come holding out their hands I insist on talking to their bosses and I insist on not giving any money to either police or any other tax authority. when I registered for service tax the official asked me for bribe. I said f*** I will report you to vigilance, that shut him up and made him give me the registration number.

    “There are millions of occasions where you have to pay the bribe to get things done. You have no choice.

    Without payoff you may get what you want in few years but the question is can you afford to wait for few years?”

    Only because people think they dont have any power they continue paying the bribes. Mention the word vigilance and you can make ANY public official whether police or tax or other official DANCE.

    For all other purposes I get a court order which is very easy to get and that will force govt offices to complete their work on time.

  2. Sada Punekar Says:

    It is very easy to blame people who pay bribe because of helplessness.
    you have passed motorcycle test without paying bribe does not represent 100s of people who “has” to pay bribe to get license. Try it in hyderabad or other metros like pune.
    same with traffic when cop stops you..

    what you have done by not going to engineering or medical is simply great. You must be having some business acumen or background to start your business. but that is not the case with every common person. keep your feet in the shoes of person who’s father is simple farmer or serviceman earning 2-3 lakhs per annum and think..

    I would advice you to get the information about shop act. With out shop act if you are running a shop then you are doing illegal business any way. No need to boast about it.

    So you really have time to get the court order for say getting your home tax done and paying your tax in time?
    I would suggest you start that business, it will be more prosperous.

    I am no supporting any kind of bribery but and really appreciate people like you but this is the fact of current india.

    It is very nice to positive but it will be foolish to ignore existing state of india..

    from ministers to police to government officials has single agneda EARN MONEY for themselves.

    I would really appreciate brave people like you if you guys can setup some helpline for commoners who are riddled with this process.
