Dear Sir, Madam
I am Indian, one of my relatives arrived in Kolkata for few weeks trip and had to visit the Foreigner Registration office in Lord Sinha Road (near Mintoo Park), Kolkata. All the visa and travel documents were in order. After completion of the registration and before giving us the official paper, the officer Mr. J. M (it seems Mr. J. Mukherjee, as I could not read the name clearly) called me from the customer service window to inside the office and asked me to pay money. There were two officers at that time.
When I expressed my surprise to the amount of money, he said others pay even more than this.
I did not want to be a victim of their authority and nexus, hence I payed.
On the return, another clearance was necessary from the same office, and we had to visit again. Again the same thing happened, at that time I felt like bitten by a d.... (sorry for my feelings).
