Subject: Good one : Shouldn't it be followed

Sharing a great experience (happened today), do read below: Yesterday, on the way to office, I was stopped by traffic policemen (Ghazipur, Delhi), and asked to show relevant documents of my bike. I told them that 1) pollution certificate has expired and 2) Insurance copy that I was carrying is also outdated (although I have the renewed Insurance policy but was not carrying at that time). The senior Inspector told me to that this will reach to a heavy penalty amt. So he offered me to SETTLE DOWN the matter then n there. (A thought ran in my mind, asking myself: I was the part of people supporting "Anti-Corruption" movement lead by ANNA HAZARE, just a month back, and the practical situation was in front of me, how to deal with that).

Suddenly, I got my answer, and I refused them to pay anything, and asked them to issue a CHALLAN. Hence, they issued the same with 2 offenses viz. 1) Expired Pollution and 2) Expired Insurance and retained bike's RC (Registration Certificate). To pay the penalty I was to appear at Karkardooma Court (room no. 30) by 4pm today. So, I went there, at the scheduled time. The moment I parked my bike, a bunch of people called Agents approached me and started querying about the matter, and were assuring to do the job done in 15 min. and were telling me that for both the offenses

I 'll be charged about Rs. 2000/-, and if I had the Insurance then Rs 1100/- at least, but they can settle the matter within 500-600 rupees (including their commission worth Rs. 100). >From parking up to Room no. 30, some dozens of Agents approached me and delivered the same damn story. I told them "listen, If I were to pay You people then I would have paid the policemen and need not come here". I submitted the copy of CHALLAN and waited for my turn in Room no. 30. The (Lady)Judge appeared in the court and began hearings... after 5-7 minutes my name was called and was asked to present the valid Insurance doc.

I presented the Original doc. and in fraction of seconds she announced the PENALTY AMOUNT, paid the amount immediately, collected my RC and the Amount Receipt later after the rest of hearings. HMMM... I know, u all are interested in the Penalty Amount, to my SURPRISE!! as well, it came to just Rs 100/-, nothing else. I was getting a feeling of Satisfaction and Proud, in the sense that, ATLEAST I TRIED to live up to the Ideology of 'ANNA's Movement' against Corruption, in real sense.

MORAL: Never hesitate to approach the officials directly to resolve our personal matters. This way, we will get to know the actual rules n regulations and could contribute in removing CORRUPTION. Please Spread if u liked/not liked this. It was amazing experience. more

WelDone .. least some people sill hve courage to show truth without short cut. more  
Please send this kind of news to the media. They need to show some positive things also. TV and Newspapers are loaded with negativity, all over the world. It will be a good trend in India if they show more positive and less negative things. Positive journalism can charge up people to do the right things and that can bring changes in their attitude and behavior. That will change the country, it's the people. Recently a friend of mine got a good experience published in the newspaper - He is a professor in US was back in India travelling by the train. Some MP and his thugs cohorts and friends got in and pushed the passengers around including the professor. After some arguments, the professor asked the MP "when your children grow up, do you want them to become like you or like me?" And gave him his card, that showed that he was a Professor. So the argument stopped and he told his thugs not to bother him After 20 years my friend received an apology and thank you letter from that ex-MP's son. Every positive experience should be put in the news paper. Please write more! more  
Wow! My salute! more  
Thank you for sharing your valuable experience! We really appreciate your advice. The other thoughts; 1. The traffic police, brokers and agents are just en-cashing on the lack of awareness among the common citizens , even the educated crowd. The traffic law, penalty structure, procedural details are complex laws, which keeps changing at the department level. But, The riders are not really being updated on such laws and their implications. We do receive hundreds of mails, SMS everyday from marketing companies and not even one from the government departments. 2. Time is money - a working professional, especially, from the private sector would have opted for settling it on the spot, at whatever the cost. because, there is no time predictability that the challan payment procedure in the court would get closed. 3. And if it is a woman driver, the scenario would be bit of harassing too handling the whole crowd there. more  
Well appreciated. Let the people face the law of the land instead of settling matters by paying bribes. more
