Bribe being termed as "Process Fee".

Reported on January 21, 2014 from Udupi , Karnataka  ι Report #39083

I went to the police station in the Manipal area near Udupi for Police Verification for Passport and after the verification was done, was asked to pay 200 rupees to the police. When asked what was it for, he termed it as "Processing fee". I tried to argue by saying that this fee was nowhere mentioned on the website or while applying for passport. But they kept asking for the money and started warning me about my passport process being stopped. Need someone to verify whether this has happened In any other police station also...
