Ever heard of asking for a bribe sincerely?
Lady Officers manning the Registrar of Companies Office and the Distric Industry Centre each gazed up calmly and said, 'so, how do you want to do this? Would you like to give it now or...?"
The question left incomplete, her face full of earnestness, she looked the picture of duty and sincerity.
When she saw the look of slow comprehension dawning on our faces she put in, "Don't mind, but we have to ask. You see, the boss wants it, and he won't sign your documents unless you pay up. The fee is 1000."
The actual cost of getting the ROC documents is Rs. 350, and registering at a DIC is FREE. But we had to pay Rs.1000 at each place.
Who knows whether the money goes to the boss, stays with her, or gets divvied up! The joys of starting an agri-based micro-enterprise!
