RTA Hyderabad — RTA Officer taking Undue advantage of his power and charging fines
To Whom It may Concern:
This is in reference to the misbehavior of the RTA inspector who unnecessarily charged me with Rs. 200/- for unable to produce the documents which I had. I requested him to give me 5 mins and I will produce all the documents since I am staying just next to the road where he stopped me. This instance happened with the officer who was on duty at Yusufguda Stadium at 1810 hours on 9th June 2010.
If he didn’t wanted to cooperate with me then he should have fined me Rs.50/- as per S 132/177, instead he charged Rs.150/- extra saying am refusing to produce the documents / disobeying the order. Is requesting to wait for 5mins is disobeying or refusing to produce the documents? I called my wife and she was just getting the documents in just 2 mins. The same officer and his cops were openly accepting bribe on the road and allowing other offenders to escape but when they realized that I have all the documents they started harassing me and forced me to pay Rs.200/-. Even now I have not signed the challan because I have all the necessary documents.
Similar other instances have occurred several times of unnecessarily harassing the prompt people like me. My vehicle being out of AP I honestly paid all the taxes in AP and now I felt I did a mistake because these cops are determined to harass people if they refuse to pay bribe.
I want to escalate this to higher officials and Anti Corruption Commissioner. As a first step am posting this complaint to you hoping for action to be taken against this officer. If am not acknowledged about the action and refund me the fine charged, I will escalate this further because these instances are not frequently occurring and I am fed up with Hyderabad RTA Officers who are corrupt especially if you tell them that you work in Hi-tech city.
RTA Officers have powers that doesn’t mean that they can exercise their powers to take undue advantage of citizens.
