I had approached the Electricity office for transferring the electric meter to my name. My wife and I made several rounds with different set of documents, the approving official was missing from his/her seat all the time or some excuse was given. Finally when I started venting my frustration one of them advised me to bribe them and get out of the situation. I decided to do that because there was no way my employer was ready to give me leaves for personal work. Once I paid the bribe of Rs. 1500/- my job was completed in 3 days.
There has to be a system in place to monitor the corrupt. I was tempted to approach Lokayukta to set up the corrupt officials but did not due to time constraints.
