Does anyone know an official in Vigilance and Anti-corruption department? Or know such powerful organizations who can expose corruption? I want to report a bribery…no no…a daylight robbery in Civil supplies and Consumer Protection department office in my taluk….I am trying to have my name and my sister’s name removed from our parents’ ration card so that we can apply for separate ration cards for our familiies….I have successfully had my husband’s name removed from his parents’ ration card in 10 days from the date of application…but when I went to apply for mine, a lady in the office is asking for Rs. 500 per name removal…so in my case, she is demanding Rs.1000…if we don’t want to pay the bribe, she’s saying that the name deletion process will take 1 month…as against 10 days in my husband’s case….I am really upset the way these people are shamelessly asking for bribes besides the salaries that are being shelled out from our tax money…..I want to report this to some forum that will take appropriate action…but without revealing my identity….it may sound stupid….but I am not sure if the officials in the taluk office will misplace my parents’ ration card and make my life miserable if I reveal my identity…5 years, 11 months ago AkhilaKeymaster
Why dont you file an RTI instead?? They will not certainly not misplace your card.. but instead they will promptly action on your complaint with utmost care..5 years, 11 months ago RajiguhanKeymaster
I seconds aks….as even for bhavani…she has problem similar to this, but she filled a RTI which made her life simple…try that out!!!!!!!!all the best..5 years, 11 months ago Bhavani RamanKeymaster
Please give all the forms and documents that you’ve to give procedure wise. Then wait for the no. of days they say (in the ration card office at villivakkam where i went, they’ve written that issuing new card will be 1 month, duplicate card will be 3 days or something like that. check for no. of days for your case). Then file an RTI. And wait for them to get back to you! Your name would defenitely be exposed, but you wouldn’t point to the person who asked you for bribe. So the higher official has to answer your letter and ultimately do what you need. I was lucky to have got the ration card with one RTI. So if you dont get it in one RTI, please continue to file. Per RTI filing, it takes only rs.25 max including the courier cost!
Here is how you’ve to file the RTI5 years, 11 months ago ArunVarunammaKeymaster
Dear Bhavani, Aks and Raji,
Thank you for the idea…I will try it out if they don’t give my name removal certificate within the time they have specified…but RTI does seem to be an effective way to get things done in the government department. Thank you for the good news!
