I Paid a Bribe

I Paid A Bribe is an Indian platform which fights corruption by recording attempts at bribery.

I Paid A Bribe is an Indian platform which fights corruption by recording attempts at bribery. Of more than 53,000 cases recorded, around 80 percent concern bureaucrats demanding illegal payment (October, 2015).

For example, a woman in Bangladesh was asked to pay 120 Indian rupees for a birth certificate which is in fact free of charge. “He said it was for fees,” the woman writes. Following in the footsteps of I Paid A Bribe, similar sites have been set up in Bhutan and Pakistan, as well as the international Bribespot which launched in 2011. Other examples are Vigeye (India) and Corruption Watch (South Africa).
