Bribe paid for CGHS claim

Reported on October 4, 2019 from New Delhi , Delhi  ι Report #214743

My father works as Junior Engineer in MES in Delhi Cantonment. About to retire in Feb 2019. He had a heart attack in April and operated first on 30th April in Emergency in a private hospital. His claim was submitted in the 2nd week of May'19. He then again went for second surgery due to a complication on 5th July'19. This second claim was submitted in the 2nd week of July. He waited until August for claims to be reimbursed as CGHS has a timeline of 45 days to process claims. However when he went to accounts dept in his office. 10% of both the claim amounts was asked as bribe to process claims or they would put unnecessary objection on the file. I had taken loan for this amount for my father to be treated. To repay my loans, he agreed to pay them bribe and even after that, It's 4th Oct today and he still awaits his money to be reimbursed. What kind of demon souled people take bribe for legit claims of ill people. This is beyond shamlessness
