Corruption in Registration of Death Department.
Moreover, there is another practice to do with registering the death of a person who passes away in accident needs to be rectified. Families have to travel to the municipal office in the area where the accident took place. Instead they should be allowed to register the death in their own local municipal office and the municipal office authorities should see that the records in the area where the accident took place are also updated with that record of death.
Imagine when a death that takes place in a remote area or another state - the amount of pain and grief it will cause the family of the deceased will be tremendous. Thus this rule should be scrapped and rectified so that the authorities do the tallying and update the records of death in the corresponding area of the accident without putting the family of the deceased to any trouble at all.
Bribes were asked by officials at the mortuary, police station and the municipality in the said case and the family in grief had no choice but to give in. Officials found to be bribing the family of deceased should be severely punished to the extent of losing their jobs after a serious warning. more
