Touts rule the roost

Reported on August 25, 2011 from Chennai , Tamil Nadu  ι Report #31560

When I decided to apply for a ration card in the 1990 s, I went to the Food and Civil supplies Department, Mylapore to get an application form. I was told that the forms were out of stock and was asked to come back later. I made several trips and was given the same answer. On my way down the stairs, on one such trip, I was approached by a tout who had the forms that I needed. I was furious and insisted on meeting the Officer in charge. Everything changed after that and I was immediately given a form. I managed to get my ration card without spending one rupee as bribe though i had to make seven trips to the office. I shudder to think of the common man s plight.
