As foreigners, we were living in Mumbai. At September end we went back to France with our labrador.


We had to get the Animal Health Certificate from the Department of Animal Husbandry & Dairying, Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India.


We had to go twice to the Animal Quarantine Office and it turned quickly complicated with this department, untill we understand that we had to bribe them.


My driver discussed with the guard who explained : we had to pay Rs 100 to each employee plus Rs 500 to Dr Bhosale, the official Vet. He also asked Rs 100 for himself.


As we had no choice we asked our Agent to pay Rs 900 and we got immediately the certificate signed.


This is exactly what happened.

Interestingly, we found on internet another testimony regarding bribes habits with the same Department of Animal Quarantine :

Un économiste indien propose de légaliser les pots-de-vin: payer serait autorisé mais recevoir serait toujours interdit ! Allez comprendre...

Le PDG d'Infosys, SSII indienne, a le même avis !

Bonjour Geoffroy et Olivia,
Cette anecdote reflete helas, comme vous le savez tres bien, le quotidien en Inde. C'est cette corruption la, plus encore que la grande corruption que nous retronvons aussi dans nos pays, qui
gangrene le pays et prend en otage la population. Vous devriez la publier sur un site du type ipaidabribe.com dont l'audience est grande et l'action cumulee sans-doute non vaine.
A bientot et bon atterrissage en France !
