Guys I paid 1500rs fee online for passport, but when I went to psk. I was told I had to buy passport cover which is 500rs, and it’s mandatory. Is it really so?

Because last time which is probably like 7 years ago, I didn’t pay anything, just the fee. This is really new for me , I thought there is no corruption in govt offices anymore

Ps: i looked up on YouTube n quora seems like this has been going on across the country

I did not even know such cases were being sold at passport seva kendra. I just paid online and no one even bothered to tell me about this case at psk.

Passport online application pay only Rs 1500/- for normal passport with min pages. No need to subscribe to their SMS, or any other commercial items like cover etc. Politely refuse them.

I think it’s the “fear” of passport application getting rejected makes people say YES to all this stupidity.

I don’t understand why does the passport authority entertain such pimping within their premises.

& I don’t understand, why people think buying cover will help them get passport or Not buying it will get it rejected..

I refused to pay anything for police verification as well.. still no problem occurred..
