Thank you for suggestion. But I am a bit of a skeptic though.
The reason I am trying to assemble an answer to this is similar to other 'grey areas of laws' in nepal - no one really knows what the REAL law is. Suppose I fill out the form, pay the fee and show them the photocopy of my grandma's nagrita as well as my grandpa's original nagrita. What if they make the following claim:
1. They cannot relay on a photocopy since they think it may be fake.
2. They cannot use a dead person's nagrita to confirm the validity of living person's nagrita.
3. They cannot do anything until we pay them another fee.
The room for these mostly corrupted officers to harass us is plenty. Sure, its easy to pay the 'subba' and get what I want BUT I am NOT willing to fuel the fire or contribute to the corruption by paying them money that they do not truly deserve. This has got to stop. A way to avoid this is to know WHAT the law says.
If you know the law or have similar experieces please share.
