Dear Prime Minister, We, the undersigned, hereby express our grave concern over the recent rules where PIO will have to pay a fee of $168 to get their Indian passport cancelled by the country's mission here. It is a huge burden for family's to be able to pay this huge amount. We all agree that it is justified to surrender the passport on aquiring foreign citizenship, however the fees being charged is ridiculous and should be discontinued immediately. We humbly request you Your Excellency Mr. Prime Minister and Madam Sonia jee to look into this injustice being done to all who aspire to get foreign citizenship and are being forced to pay this amount unjustly Thank you, The Undersigned

    4 years ago Comments: Mine is a family of 6.I think this is going to be way too much for me to pay.I seriously would want this fee waived off or drastically reduced.There is no justification as to why we would have to pay so much to surrender our passports.
