Indian bureaucracy

April 4, 2014

India has made enormous progress over the last 20 years, but even a casual look suggests it has a long way to go. If you want a taste of mind-numbing Indian bureaucracy, try the visa application. If you’re looking for something with a little more entertainment value, try this one from the always reliable Joe Foudy:

Over 600 complaints regarding the Delhi Police forwarded by the Central Vigilance Commission to an online portal have been pending for the past eight years. The reason: the Delhi Police didn’t know the password to access the portal or how to operate it, a lapse that went undetected since 2006.

More here.  Brilliant idea, really, to just throw out the complaints.
