Had to pay 500Rs Bribe to register my father's death and get Death Certificate @ Avadi Municipality-Chennai-TamilNadu

Reported on August 22, 2010 from Chennai , Tamil Nadu  ι Report #30962

In September 2009 when my Father died I had to Pay 500Rs to the get Death Certificate from Municipality (TamilNadu-Chennai-Avadi Municipality). Increasingly the public servants in Chennai are are either giving their mobile numbers and ask us call later / ask our mobile numbers so they can call later. If any one of this happens it most probably means they are looking for bribes and the same happened in my case. The clerk responsible for Registering for death certificates gave his number and when call kept on postponing till the time he said "the matter can be settled immediately if you want" and I had to agree. So on payment of the money the death certicate was delivered immediately.
