Bribe for my son's birth certificate

Reported on September 15, 2018 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #189033

I visited the Bangalore BBMP office Padmanabanagar for inclusion of name in my son's birth certificate. The official (Mr.Lakshman) shamelessly asked me for some extra amount for him to give menthe revised certificate. I had to pay him Rs.50/- else he wouldn't move an inch to move the file ahead. He later got the print out and handed it to another lady in the department for the seal and a BBMP sticker on the certificate. This lady further demanded another Rs 50/- else she said she will not get the work done and I had to pay her the amount. To this the I also had to pay Rs.120/- as official fees for the certificate .. The question here is not about the bribe I paid but was feeling bad about the way these govt officials demand money for doing their job.. I later came out of the office and was encountered by a old handicapped beggar who asked me for money , I paid him too gladly considering that I already some healthy govt official beggars inside the office and the latter seemed for genuine ..
