Even for tarpaulin installation, double rates quoted in panaji, goa

Indicating the endless harassment faced by the domain investor in panaji, goa, any repair person she will contact is charging double rate.
After the roofing contractor for metal roofing disappeared, she tried to get tarpaulin installed to prevent leakage during monsoon.
In the market she was told that the market rate for installing the tarpaulin is Rs 700 for a small roof.
However, when she contacted a person to have a look at the house, the person said he was charging Rs 1800, probably because the panaji security agency employees were demanding Rs 1000 as a bribe

Later when she interacted with other repair persons, they also said that their charges for one day was Rs 700 per day,
