There is good in the world too

Reported on July 18, 2017 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #166514

Public reviews, based on their horrible experiences regarding corruption are so wide spread and engraved in our minds, that we inadvertently judge a person even if we haven't known them earlier. It's even worse when you have yourself gone through it at least once earlier. I was no different when I visited Mico Layout Police Station for verification for reissuance of my expiring passport(15-7-2017 around 6.30-7.00pm). I had received an sms to my number to visit the station with a few mentioned documents, and then I received an sms from Passport Seva Kendra(PSK) that my passport has already been dispatched. Being skeptical, as anyone in my place could me, I ignored the sms. 2 days later, I got the same sms, and this time my passport had already arrived. Confused, I called up the PSK to enquire what's to be done. The lady on the other side politely told me that it was important that I visit the station. Not very comfortable, and with so many questions in my head, and the constant nagging thought about how much would I have to pay or bribe( I had already asked the lady from PSK,who had told me there was no extra charge that I had to pay at the station), I went to the station immediately. But Inspector, Mr.Vijay Kumar(I don't know the designation) was very sweet,cooperative,answered all my queries politely(i had a lot of them as someone had told me reissuance doesn't require verification) and to my greatest relief, no bribe was asked, either directly or indirectly. There were 2more people who had come for verification as well, 1 of them was quite annoying, still the inspector handled the situation quite professionally. I think, it is very important that we share not just the bad experiences that we have,but the good ones too. Coz there's some good in the world too
