A specific, action-oriented anti-bribery poster in Bengaluru

As my bus was passing through Jayanagar, in south Bangalore, this sign caught my eye and I clicked it out of the window.



It says that the Jayadeva General Hospital was inspected by “Lanchamukta Karnataka Nirmana” and found to have many staff who were demanding bribes to do their work, and gives a number to call in case someone finds a bribe being asked for.

It was a very heartening poster to see, with at least the ability to make a complaint and the possiblity of redressal.

I wish the organization success in its efforts. I do hope prospective patients and their families lodge complaints. But I wonder why this valuable service is restricted to this hospital alone. I also hope there are posters in Kannada too.
