A minor tech glitch in the heart of tech corridor of Bangalore, India’s tech city hasn’t been set right in two months, a report by Bangalore Mirror said.
A computer at a post office in Whitefield, the heart of city’s tech corridor, got locked after someone typed a wrong password thrice.
Ironically, the computer –savvy techies who say it would have taken just a minute to recover the password have been made to run from pillar to post to get their property registered as e-stamping was not available for the computer’s password got locked.
Techies who have been visiting this post office to get their property registered by buying a e-stamp paper are either forced to visit a government-run property registration office which is 10 kilometer away or one of the nearest post offices which are located at almost the same distance away from this tech corridor post office.
The report quoted an officer of the post office as saying that e-stamping would be available within a week but that has not happened for two months now.
“The computer got locked because someone entered the wrong password three times. I have informed our bosses in the eastern office and they say the password will be recovered by Monday,” the report quoted postmaster Chandrashekar as saying as an excuse for the problem.
Meanwhile, a senior post official of the region feigned ignorance about the locked computer.
“It does not take more than a minute to unlock the computer. Since the postmaster there has not informed us about the locked computer, we have not solved it. I will make sure people get e-stamping facility from Friday itself,” said Y Honkan, senior superintendent postmaster (east).
