Mumbai police teaches how to lodge a false FIR

Filing of a false FIR is an offence:

Section 211 of Indian Penal Code, 1860 provides that false accusation of offence is itself an offence for which there is a punishment of imprisonment upto seven years and fine. This is the provision:

False charge of offence made with intent to injure.—Whoever, with intent to cause injury to any person, institutes or causes to be instituted any criminal proceeding against that person, or falsely charges any person with having committed an offence, knowing that there is no just or lawful ground for such proceeding or charge against that person, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both;
and if such criminal proceeding be instituted on a false charge of an offence punishable with
death, imprisonment for life, or imprisonment for seven years or upwards, shall be punishable with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine.

This is the reason that politicians file petitions in Supreme Court and High Courts alleging corruption but they do no file complaint with the police. Remember Rafale and the jibe of Rahul Gandhi? This why never filed a proper complaint with police. But Mumbai police is so great that it has found a way to file FIR without implicating itself. Read the English translation of FIR No. 843 of 2020 against India TV on the website of Republic TV here.

It starts with the narration that “Today on 6th October 2020 Assistant Police Inspector Mr. Kazi has informed me that on the basis of secret information“. Now the complainant has no information and Mr. Kazi who has information is not the complainant. Why? Obviously to escape the liability of section 211 quoted above.

Axis Bank and high-handedness in charging for neft transaction.

Unauthorised debit by Axis Bank and refusal to reply!

Axis Bank is a direct subsidiary of Reserve Bank and first private Bank in public sector. Well that is the dichotomy. It is therefore supposed to be fairer than private players but it appears, it is not.

A Bank account is like trust account. Banker is the trustee of customer’s money in the account. Axis Bank has been my Bank of choice for past decade. Recent tryst with Kotak Bank reaffirmed that choice. However of late Axis Bank is becoming the corporate monster that are many busy in stealing small funds from millions thereby making millions.

Charging for NEFT transaction:

NEFT is an acronym for National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) which is an Indian system of electronic transfer of money from one bank or bank branch to another. As per my knowledge transfer of 2 lacs or two hundred thousand is made without any charges. However my account was debited with a miniscule amount towards NEFT charges, recently which surprised me. Hence I tweeted about it and as advised by Axis Bank’s twitter handler, I sent an email to Axis Bank.

My email to Axis Bank:

Dear Sir

I have two issues:
1. The NEFT transactions are being delayed too much. I transferred Rs.899/- *** on xx Oct. 2015 but it has not been credited in beneficiary account till date. The beneficiary is my credit card account with *** Bank.
2. Neft has no fee. Some times in the past I have found small amounts of Rupee or two and odd being debited in my account as NEFT charges. Why?
Kindly revert ASAP.
Regards

Godaddy.com: you too Brutus!

This website is hosted on godaddy.com for past few months. It was fine until yesterday but since than I am told that it is down every hour. Jet pack is sending emails about it several times, every hour.
I had thought Godaddy. Com was a serious host. Alas it is not. Like many before, it promised something, that it can not deliver. Only 8 people could land in past 18 hours.
Shame on you godaddy. You too Brutus!

Godaddy is khushbu-e-tashrif:

Today (March 15) I received a warning email that website is consuming resources. I logged in Cpanel and found that yesterday there was IO error by consuming the allocated all the memory of 1024 MB. Today there was no problem but the website is loading slow. Unable to to update plugins and so on.
