Postman asking Cash

Reported on October 7, 2020 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #225086

My Friend sent a Lego Toy for my 6 year old child from US. The toys cost was $46 and he paid postage & Indian customs to USPS in total $78. As the Indian customs was already paid it was cleared by customs and dispatched to my address by India Post.

When postman came to deliver this toy item he asked me to pay the entire customs duty again in cash only in total Rs 4900. I asked him can I pay this item online on customs portal or India post postal ? He told me that only option is to pay in cash to him else that item will be kept in post office for sometime. The post office is 560068.
