How many erring staffs of Uttar Pradesh power corporation were penalized under section 142 ? Now the inflation is too much high so this meagre amount one lac will not create fear in the mind of wrongdoers.

Hon'ble member this is India here nothing takes place by pursuing the law of land if you want that your work may be done ,then make contact broker in modern words these are agents who have highly approaches and can do all works. Bribe of Rs.100 is more that the letter of grievance with the advice note of PMO.
