Mr. Ashok Jain went to retrieve his towed car from Chennai's C1 police station. The police asked him to pay Rs. 800 (Rs. 150 fine + Rs. 650 bribe).

Mr. Jain said he would pay in exchange for a receipt, which the police wouldn't give. After much talking and pleading, Mr Ashok called his friend Vinod Jain, who came to the station and handed a Zero Rupee Note to the police.

The police saw the note, withdrew their demand for the bribe, accepted the Rs. 150, and gave the receipt without question.
