The charges as prescribed by MOTOR VEHICLES ACT as per SEC 15(2),R/W SEC177 for Wrong Parking + Towing charges(2Wheeler) is 750, so if he took 500 ; he is justified.

A corrupt police officer has implicated me and my father in a serious case . Even , I was not present at the place of incident . ( I have sufficient proof to show my alibi ). He also managed local doctor and took a false firearm injury report from him . The informant actually suffered no such injury. I am preparing for UPSC . My career and future is at stake . My father is a 60 yrs old man . He was behind the bars without any guilt . What should we do ?

Your question does not have details. Depending on where this incident has occurred , please meet a very senior police officer under whom the case comes directly and in whom you have confidence  and give a detailed representation. In the alternative you may also approach a senior officer from the vigilance/ anti corruption agency/Lok Ayukta and provide a representation. You also have the choice to try both the options simultaneously in order to be sure that at least one of the agencies acts on your complaint.

I recently changed my electricity connection (BESCOM Supply) from COMMERCIAL to DOMESTIC.We have paid all the due charges and even paid an amount of INR 5,500 without any receipt givenFollowing payment of INR 5,500, now the "Sub Contractor" is demanding additional INR 3,200 as additional amount for the consumed electricity as "Arrears" due to "HIGH CONSUMPTION". Owing to this, our electricity meter has still not been converted to DOMESTIC

Posted on December 05, 2016 by Yash Ponnanna

A BESCOM’s form for transfer of electrical connections (which you must have submitted to BESCOM) contains very important information viz outstanding arrears must be cleared, the consumer must pay the costs of installation, the consumer must also pay security deposit, fixed charges and advance as fixed by BESCOM.  Payment is made to BESCOM. The sub-contractor cannot demand any money as arrears. BESCOM alone can do so after raising a bill. Please complain to your local BESCOM office about the sub- contractor’s unauthorized demands.

Sir/Madam.I want to do the land registration in Hosur,Tamil nadu. My builder provided details on the stamp paper and registration cost in Demand Draft in favor of sub registrar Hosur. However there is an additional cost which is around 25K in cash, which he mentions to be the cost of legal,document writing and other expenses. Since it is in cash it could be a bribe ?I am worried if this is any legal, should the amount be 25K for the expenses he mentions , Please help I don't want to bribe

Posted on December 02, 2016 by Gagandeep singh

Ask the builder to provide the breakup of the additional amount of Rs 25000 that he claims as other expenses. If you are satisfied with his reply then you can consider the next step but do not pay in cash. Builders often collect bribes in this manner and your apprehensions may have a sound foundation. First acquaint yourself with the procedures and learn about guideline value and the stamp duty payable thereon. You will find the information at the Government of Tamil Nadu’s website http://www.tnreginet.net/. The website contains information about guideline value and the stamp duty and registration fees.  Apparently counters have been opened in Sub Registrar’s offices to reply to such queries.

How to deal with the police officer who directly doesn't ask for a bribe but keeps delaying the verification process (for passport) almost to the point of mental harassment?

Posted on December 02, 2016 by Sajid Saleem

You should seek a personal audience with the jurisdictional Deputy Commissioner of police n seek his intervention after giving him all the details. Please be aware that the concerned police officer may not be too pleased with such a step on your part .But one should be prepared to take it in  one's stride.

I live in outskirts of city closer to new bangalore airport. Last night 27 Nov 16, there was echoes of earth festival where they were using loudspeakers even after 10PM, it was noisy, I had informed Rajanukunte SI and asked him to stop. This SI was already inside the party area, taking part in that, when I asked him to stop, he denied to do it and also asked me stop If I can. He was rude and arrogant. How should I approach this incident that next time they stick to 10PM deadline

Posted on November 28, 2016 by Manu N M

Please put down all the particulars in detail in a piece of paper and present it to the Superintendent of police Bangalore rural district for taking action against the concerned.This may ensure that the10 pm deadline is followed .
