Police Verification for Passport

Reported on March 22, 2016 from Thane , Maharashtra  ι Report #96948

Constable Navare Diva Choki, falls under Mumbra Police area. Thane.
Police constable ask me to show all document and their Original, after showing all asked document which I think more than requirement. like asking Ration Card, Aadhar Card, Pan Card, Flat Registration paper (whole bunch of registration paper), Property Tax paper, College leaving certificate, Bank passbook.

After gone through all paper and Original, asked about current working company. Then folded Aadhar card paper and written 1000. and started starring at me. I kept quite for few moment and watched him for few moment his next move.
As we know since morning 11:00 I was waiting outside the Police choki and Constable came past 12.30 pm. I turn was 5th, My turn came by that time was Pass 1:00 pm and also their was a 7 - 8 more people waiting outside and they also seems restless as I was when I was in my Queue.

After few moment around 1 min. of so restless time. he was seating ideal just watching my face. I got understood that if I do not sell out some money he is not going to do any work.
At a time of People outside moving restless as they have to go for some other work and as this constable was already late by 1.30 hours still he is seating ideal and watching my face.

finally to avoid my rest less and lose my tempare and engage in unwanted argument, I preferred to give some money and I shown him 5 finger. still he nag his head and show the paper again. then I asked him 'for what reason, you are asking the money ? (since I shown all require document). He replied "This is Police Clearance process".

Again I hold myself to avoid engage in unwanted argument, I kept quite for another few movement. but on same time getting pressured by noise of people outside waiting for their turned and starring to my from near to door to finish my business fast.

But I hold myself, after 10 sec of quite he flash his hand and shown his approval. I taken out 500 Gandhiji Note and given to that constable.
