Extortion in India - Inputs on Issues
Many of you through posts/comments and private posts have written over the last year asking us to take up this subject.
Extortion (also called shakedown, outwrestling, and exaction) is a criminal offense of obtaining money, property, or services from a person, entity, or institution, through coercion.
With this post we would like to request all of you to list issues/cases related to this subject. The objective is to understand issues, causes around it, develop solutions and then affect law & order policies in a way that such practices are minimized in our nation.
Someone collecting fair dues from another party as defined in terms of contract must not be confused with extortion and is something that should be processed efficiently and effectively through our legal system.
We look forward to your inputs!

Extortion is taking place everywhere and only thing is that one has to be alert to find out such happenings.
Contractors use substandard materials, leave the works incomplete and resort to many other acts to save from the contracted money as they have to pay a portion of the contract amount as commission right from the peon to the highest authority plus the local leaders.
This practice is in vogue every where and in every works and deals.
People fight election spending crores of rupees. Of course the money does not come from the pockets of the leaders or from the savings of their fore fathers. The source of the money is any bodys' guess. more
