5 for a rat kill !

In a city forever on the lookout for quickbuck ideas, here's one from the BMC: kill a rat, and get Rs 5 for it. Don't sneeze. Given Mumbai's rat population - - nine crore at the moment -- there's Rs 45 crore to be made out of ratslaughter.
In order to claim the money for each one of your victims, all you have to do is produce the rat's body at the local ward office (Mumbai has 24 ward offices).
And if you've smashed the rodent beyond recognition with a stick or a stone, don't worry, you don't have to carry the mutilated body all the way to the ward office. If you just show the civic officials the tail, it's proof enough; the money will be paid to you in cash immediately.
