We all have been victims to Indian bureaucracy and corruption at one time or the other. Applying for a passport, driver’s license, telephone connection, Khata certificate, Ration card, and so on all can be nightmarish experiences for an average Indian. To escape the long queues and complicated procedures you must either be rich with good ability to grease some palms or you must be well connected (with the high and mighty). If you aren’t either, in order to survive you must be thick skinned, patient, and must carry no sense of ego and self respect. The Ex-Servicemen who enjoys a special place in hearts of our citizens are double victims of "Red Tape and Bureaucracy". The depth of confusion and conflicting issues put up so well by Bureaucrats negates any policy implementation at National Level. Here is one sample of 60 pages of nothingness and no one is wiser about benefits that an ESM expects: How, where, by whom and when?
