I am from Hoskote Bangalore rural district, I was forced to pay bribe to tax collector. The reason is the hoskote rural district is now computerizing the properties through their e-portal called e-swathu, for which all the property owners have to pay up-to-date taxes and provide PID number.
I paid up-to-date taxes and required PID number to apply for e-swathu or e-katha. for which I need to contact tax collector. The tax collector made to run from pillar to post and was not at all responding for my requests to share the PID number. Finally I was forced to pay bribe to get the PID number of my property and submit the request for e-katha.
This is not only my case, there are thousands of property owners who are also suffering similarly, government should take an immediate action, before it is too late.
