Puttur: Fines collected for Covid guidelines violations - Receipts without serial numbers


Daijiworld Media Network - Puttur (SP)

Puttur, May 6: The government has taken measures to enforce norms and guidelines relating to coronavirus control. Those violating the rules are made to cough up fines. Puttur municipality has been imposing fines on those found violating the rules. However, the receipts issued on behalf of the municipality do not bear any serial numbers.

Covid marshals of the municipality, functioning under the leadership of health inspector, Shwetha Kiran and Ramachandra, move around the city and collect fines from the people found flouting the rules or shops which are found to be functioning beyond the permitted hours. But the absence of any serial numbers on the receipts issued by the marshals gives rise to suspicion that the amounts collected may be pocketed by the marshals instead of depositing in the municipality account.

The marshals are found to be issuing photocopies of the receipts in exchange for the fines received. If anyone demands original receipt, they are asked to visit the municipality and collect the same. Normally people do not take the pain to go to the municipal office to collect the original. There is suspicion that the officials, aware of this, might be adding the fine amounts to their personal accounts instead of the municipality.

Municipal commissioner here, Roopa Shetty, said that she has noted that receipts without serial numbers are issued for the fines collected in the city. She asked people having any doubts to personally visit the municipal office and verify whether the fines have been deposited.

    Wow!!! Receipt without Serial Number. Found another Loop hole to loot the Public beside Ventilators, Beds, ICU spaces,Vaccines etc. Corona has created many Poor People around the World as well as Created many Wealthy People in the name of Corona. Earning of Vaccine Companies went way up CORONA:--- Corruption Of Rogue Officials-Nethas-Administrators. 19 stands for- Since 2019. It will be nice to Check Bank Accounts of People involved in these kind of activities by Revenue Department as Early as Possible. For other activities Authorities demand Receipt with Official Stamp with Signature on it plus Serial Number on the Receipt.

    Municipal commissioner here, Roopa Shetty. Common people doesnt want to waste time and go and sit in municipal office and paying the fine on the Spot. Why dont u clear with Providing Serial Number on the Receipt and avoid doubts of Common People that you are having Hands with Curroptors..?

    Roopa Shetty, Do you send your staff to home to collect the fines? No isn't it? same way do your job straight forward and transparent on site itself. We have no time to visit your office now and then for silly things. Does this receipt has duplicate copy.. I doubt...

    First of all without serial number how one can issue receipt? Ms. Roopa Shetty, why people have go to municipal office? Why can’t you verify authenticity of issued fine receipts and give offcial statement about the genuineness. Can’t you control of your own people?
