Waited 12 years, out of FEAR of bribery.

In 2004, Muthuselvi applied for a ration card and was demanded a  bribe, she dropped her efforts and did not hold Ration Card for the last 12 years out of fear of briberyWhen she applied for it again this year they asked her for Rs.2000 as the bribe. When she approached 5th Pillar, they helped her file Right to Information Act [RTI] petition o26.07.2016 to PIO of Civil supplies and ​Consumer Protection Department. To her wonderment officials turned up in 23 days to deliver the Ration Card, the news came as a relief for the family which lasted for a decade long.
