Doing business in India requires the greasing of the palms of those in control.

Something Hikvision knows too well and very much fits into their mentality of how they like to do business so it would seem, guess they are all learning from Saudi Arabia!! :-)

They put their fees directly on invoices!

 

What do you expect from a country that has a red letter day 

an envelope stuffed with cash that encourages this type of behaviour 

then they stand around pointing the finger about bribery

 

The funniest statement “You will need to make Ghandi smile twice”.  His image is on Indian currency.
