Dear All I want your opinion regarding when labour inspector demand for bribe so, How should we resolve that issue when our compliance document is perfet?
Dear Nadal06

Never make any complaint to anyone, if you and your company wants to be in Construction Field.

Please take him to some good hotel feed him and bargain and then pay it out and clear the issue.

Eventhough you maintain the records perfectly, if the labour inspector wishes to fix you he is having so many ways to fix you and so many ways to help you.

Is the Toilet facility adequate, Is canteen facility available, Is the water supplied by you is pottable, Where is your creach, like these so many question you cannot adeopt as per the statutory requirement.

He will simply come to your site; enquire 7 or 8 labourers about their wages, obtain the sign from them and he will simply go away from site. One fine day you will receive the summon from court stating that you have made underpayment to your workmen. Your workmen strength is 1000 perday you have to make Rs. 238000/- but as per the enquiry you have paid only 130000/- left is Rs 108000/- per day. Your site is running since 18 months Hence Rs108000/- * 26 days * 18 months = ______ please deposite with Labour court. like this you will receive the summon. Think what will be your position in your company, outside, Labour Court trips, Lawyer fees, your peace of mind, your disturbed mind will obviously effect your family and children.

Think and put up the matter with your management and clear by throwing some bone to the dogs.

With warm regards

S. Bhaskar


Dear Pradeep Yadav
If you pay the escalated rate of bribe evenafter filing the case and pending with labour court, (here the labour inspector need not to go to court) he will guide you how to get escape from the case also.
He will tell you to submit for providing food to the worker costing around ____ rupees, Advance given in his home village which will be deducted from his monthly wages Rs._____/- which costs per day ______. and what else he can he will guide you.
With warm regards

I do agree with Mr. S Bhaskar. Never make any complaint to anyone. Clear by throwing some bone to the dogs. With warm regards Sanju Joshi
Dear Sanju
Anyhow we have to survive with these people.
Please recollect what our former prime minister Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee told.
Humko na rahna hai doston ke saath
Humko na rahna hai dushmanon ke saath
Humko rahna hai apne padosiyon ke saath
We have to live with our society.
Here I am not blaming anyone for this scenario.
Daily we have to add some sentence in our prayer
Oh God Give me power to change the world. Otherwise give me power (tolerance) to change myself for whatever happening.
With warm regards
S. Bhaskar

Dear Mr. Nadal06,
I fully support with Mr. Bhaskar & Mr. Sanju .
I suggest you to talk with you senior and make a full coordination with labour officer . He is to much power to help you and your company .

If you are in the good books of your Inspector of Labour and JCL or DCL whoever your licencing issuing authority, then you need not to bother about anything.
It is not possible to be good to everyone but try to be good to everyone.
With warm regards
S. Bhaskar

Dear Nadal,

Bribe has become a part and parcel of our society. In every Government office you will find a board (merely for statutory purpose) that will announce that "If you are subject to harassment by any official who seeks bribe/ favour, you can write or complain to". Do not get carried away by such announcements.

Assuming that you have fixed one inspector who has sought bribe from you then you will get away temporarily. But as Mr.Bhaskar has pointed out your organisation will be subject to more statutory inspections.

Law is nothing but interpretation. So there is nothing much you can do about it.

In fact we overlook certain bribes that we pay in our day to day life. We pay Rs.300/ head for having a quick dharshan of Lord Venkateswara while several hundreds of people wait in the queue for sarva dharshan.

We have been permitted to book tickets by Tatkal while several others are in the Wait listed category by paying the extra amount. (Legalised bribe??).

We pay an amount to the driving school to obtain our driving license, to the officer issuing our family ration card and so on.

Assuming you refrain from paying a few hundreds to restore your power supply for fixing up a blown up fuse you will end up running a DG set which will be atleast 10 times costlier. So you need to weigh the options.

We are not encouring bribes but it is for the officials at the statutory departments to understand and reform themselves.



Good Advice. I agree with Mr Bhaskar here. "Throw Bones to the dogs is apt usage in this situation":)
How nice to hear all the comments. No surprise we open the newspaper every day with one new scandal. We have lost complete faith in our selves, have forgotten to stand up and raise our voice against ill and become part of the ill. Let us not blame Kalmadi, Raja, Balkrishanan and scores of others. I was passing by yesterday in a posh area in Baorda where I located a young tribal couple with 5-6 yr old son. The boy, I noticed, was bare footed. In prosperous Gujarat! Nadal, I would not encourgae to bribe the inspector. Be faithful to the law and your profession and if you can not just get out of the GULAMI and be on your own. I am sure you will be able to feed you and your family, if not buy bungalow worth Rs 1 crore.
HR family can locate the corrupt inspectors and teache them lesson by taking collective action. UP IAS officers Association is locating corrupt IAS officers and demand action against them. Can this community think in that direction?
