My passport got damaged so I applied for a new passport on 12th of March 2018. (File Number - LK2072110761218 ). I was asked for Rs. 1000 when I was called at Govind Nagar Police Station, Kanpur. They forced me to pay the amount, as they told me that my application won't be processed until and unless I agree to pay them. Today (03/04/2018) for another second inquiry I got a call from Mr. Avinash Chandra (This name showed up on Truecaller) (Ph. No. 09451137441), he told me that he won't be able to come to my office and asked me to at a point near his location with Aadhar Card Copy, PAN card copy and 1 Photograph. I reached the point, and I made the signatures on my documents in front of him, he asked me for "office kharcha, to which I replied that I won't be able to bribe you guys again and again. He replied with a very harsh attitude and said: "don't pay me anything and your application will be stuck in our office". He asked for Rs.1000 and I gave him Rs.500, I was helpless. I explained to him that I have to go to China within 2 weeks and every day counts as Visa processing will take almost a week's time. I don't want my money back but this needs to stop, I feel bad for people for whom every penny counts and are forced to pay such "office kharchas".
