Did notay bribe through entire process of tatkal passport even when asked

Reported on July 25, 2014 from Saharanpur , Uttar Pradesh  ι Report #42308

Passport reissue is just one tiny part of the bribe system. It is an easy way to earn money taking advantage of the fact that someone needs to get things done urgently. My dad passed away in 2009 and my mother wanted to visit my sister so we thought of reissuing her passport at the earliest. The whole process seemed a nightmare and I came across very few honest people which is really sad. The police verification guy was on top of my list since he ticked people who had given bribe (called Nashta panic) in his lingo. Since I refused to pay he made a cross on my application in front of me. I saw and raised a question on his action and refused to comply to his ongoing persuasions. He went on to state that if I didn't pay it would lengthen the process. I said let it be. I'll go to the police station for my own verification at which he said sorry. At the sadar thana, the officer who was to take us to the commissioner's office or senior police officer asked for money. I again refused.it took me around two months with me n and my mom visiting court everyday. It sickens me to see this happening to people who are uneducated. I hate bribery but its the harsh reality of our country. Simple digusting!
