Paid bribe to register a marriage. New name for bribe is "Fees"

Reported on February 8, 2017 from Hyderabad , Telangana  ι Report #151228

I went to the Hyderabad - Uppal SRO for marriage registration and the division clerk explained documents required. I enquired what is the challan that I have to pay and I was told pay the fees of INR 800 in cash. No need of any challans.

I went with all required documents and the process was done fairly simpler & I was asked to come at 4 PM same day to collect certificate to which I was surprised that the process is so quick.

When I went to collect, his sub ordinate Ravi asked to pay INR 800 and I was so dumb to ask is that a fees for Govt or for you. He said people generally give INR 1000 and I bargained if INR 500 would do. He insisted for INR 800 and gave me certificate.

Thankfully, people were not rude but did the job efficiently within no time.
