Last year I got my passport re-issued from Bangalore. I got the passport after policer verification only. 3 months after getting my passport, i've applied for PCC for Cyprus country. that time they said they can't issue because I had adverse report on my Police clearance certificate, I need to contact RPO for that. 3 days I was in RPO only, finally they asked me to pay penalty of Rs. 5000/- since I've given false information about my address. I was stayin the same address, its only for brief time I was travelled outside India. Out of frustration I gave them Rs. 5000/- and got my PCC done. But my stay outside India was only temprorary. So far I didnt receive any show cause notice as well. Is there any way to protest against this fine and get the penalty back? Your reply is highly appreciated.
