Paid thirty thousand bribe to stop getting harassed

Reported on October 8, 2017 from Hyderabad , Telangana  ι Report #169972

I do not know the exact name of the officer but the letter we have received was from K.N. Suresh Babu (Hyderbad). He was the director of income tax and if his office is taking bribes, he better be responsible for it. Approxiamate date is May 2016. Location is Basheerbag, Hyderabad.

Summary: We were summoned to verify some transactions in our account and we have shown the source of all the money. We were called to the office 5 times requesting for paper work one after another and sometimes we were sent back because the IT officers were busy. Does the Income Tax office think that the ordinary citizens have no work? If you want documentation, send us an email and we can send the required documents.

On the 5th occasion, we have given all the requested documents and explained all the transactions. The office has to write a report on our case and send it to head office and in order to write the report they asked for 30,000 bribe.If we had not given the bribe, they would have retaliated by sending a report indicating additional enquiry is needed and we would be making more trips to the IT office.

God save India. If one office is taking 30,000 bribe for one incident, imagine how much money he would have amassed in a year.

I will make K.N Suresh Babu as the person responsible for this as he has no control over what is going on in his office.

What is your reaction after reading this report?
