Find a Cop taking a Bribe in Delhi? Dial 1031
It’s been a month since the AAP government launched the Anti-Corruption helpline. So now if you see any government official taking a bribe, just dial 1031. A
whooping 1.25 Lakh calls have already been made on this number.
This figure is saddening and heartening both. The fact that people are using this
service rather than succumbing to the bribe is heartening, but the fact that so
many officials at so many levels are corrupt, is very disheartening.

growth of European internet companies. Hence, they wish to add more protocols
and regulations towards the way these large conglomerates do business in Europe.
President Barack Obama has also rebuked the union calling such measures
Additionally, the EU wishes to drop barriers between countries, just like it has done
for offline businesses to thrive, so that online companies also benefit
from the same.
