    I have seen a multifold increase in corruption in Mangalore .It may be RTO, MCC, Passport etc. The digital economy is the only namesake in the government offices. All the business is through cash and agents. We thought it will come down.With GST it is much more now in terms of cash transaction

    As far as RTO is concerned, I have given many suggestions to Ministry of Road Transport, a number of them have been implemented , now you can do many things online and you need no visit RTO for a number of services. Hope they implement similar things in other govt offices so that there is no human to human interaction.

    Raids on corrupt people is appreciated, but as a follow-up action they should be dismissed. There is one department which is very corrupt, but no raids till date on the officials.

    In my entire life i have NEVER got my work done without paying bribe. At first when lokayukta arrested officials and then were released it became a matter of pride if lokayukta charged you.

    NAA KHAAOONGA, NAA KHANE DOONGA' in progress. I wonder whether the unearthed cash is in demonetized currency, or the new notes. What happened to the chip that was supposed to have been incorporated in the new currency enabling officials about hidden black money ?
