Had to pay bribe for getting marriage certificate issued

Reported on August 22, 2010 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #32696

I applied for drivers license for a 4 wheeler at Koramangala RTO office. When I inquired about the procedure, everyone from the application issuing authority to the clerk wanted (or expected) something in kind (not openly though, but with signs and gestures !!). I never bent on any of those and went and approached the officer directly. He had to oblige, even though delayed the process by couple of days. They asked me to come at 2 specific time slots. Since I had to come from whitefield they assumed that, I cannot make it exactly at those time slots considering Bangalore traffic. I still made myself time and went to the office exactly at the specified time. (exact time given was between 1:00 PM and 1:30 PM on one day to pay fees and validation, and between 4:00 PM and 4:15 PM on another to collect the license). They made me wait for almost 3 hours and considered all other applicants who had paid bribe and came with agents. It was tough to be there considering traffic etc, but I really wanted to prove my point and not pay any bribe.
