hmm. even after i had all the documents they mentioned, i was forced to give some bribe. I just dont want to visit these offices again in my life :(
I submitted the documents for the same, even after submitting all the documents like tax receipt and sale deed, they said that they wanted a letter signed by the previous property owner. After I submitted that they were hinting that It will take time and all, I just ignored and pleaded ignorance and asked them how much time, they told one month, I visited their offices again after one month and checked again, dropping a hint that I will complaint. Then in the next bill the changes was reflected.
That was for Electric meter transfer, I will have to get the same done for the water meter transfer.
