  2. Nadeem says:

    I am a sub broker (stock broker) and have my office in the same place since 2008. Since, the renewal form has been taken online, my on-line application is still pending. I have uploaded all documents on the website but the form is still pending. I appealed once but there has been no response. Someone told me we have to pay a bribe to get the certificate. In the past I just fillled a renewal form and got my renewal with any bribe. What should I do to renew my Bombay Shops & Est. Certificate.
