Greedy Officials

Reported on August 27, 2010 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #30908

As I needed an international drivers liscence, I approached the RTO office at the Koramangala BDA complex. I was directed to one of the rooms where the concerned person requested for a list of documents. After going throught the documents he pointed out that they cant issue me an international drivers liscence as my drivers liscense was not issued in Karnataka and I should go to the same RTO in the other state to get my international liscense.

When I told him that I live in Bangalore for the last 3 years and that I dont live in the other state any more and what can be done now, he suggested I should go for a change of address.
And then on the same breath he continued further that it will take more than 3 months for the change of address. He added that if I am serious about the International drivers liscense then I should listen to him and he can help me get it in 2 days. He then asked me to pay him Rs3000 and he will organise my international drivers liscence. As I was to leave in 2 weeks time, I couldnt wait indefinitely for our corrupt govt employees to wake up after 3 months so I paid the Rs3000 plus the liscence fee and got my international drivers liscense
