Have you anytime gone for
registration of any property or a document in your area’s registration
office? Some facts you need to know….Ok, it so happened that I had to
register a particular document and my agent charged me Rs. 7000 for
registration of a particular document.
Now after paying I asked for the
break up…it is 500/- for scanning the document to be in government
records, Rs 1000/- for agent commission, Rs. 500/- govt fees and bloody
hell Rs 5000/- as “bribe”for the deputy sub registrar and the staff.
Now this particular babu registers on an average 80 documents per
day…and that too at one centre. Mumbai has 18 offices in town area
and 33 offices in the suburbs. I’m not even counting Thane District in
this and leave alone maharashtra. So average bribe money collected in
these offices per day turns out to be approx 2 crores per day….anti
corruption department I.e. Dixit sir…need your attention…our Revenue
department needs some attention.
