Bandra family misses out on first UK holiday due to British Embassy goof-up

A family of four from Bandra was forced to cancel its vacation to the UK because of an error on the part of the British Embassy staff in Mumbai.

Manish and Shalini Kakkar, along with their 11-year-old twins Tannmay and Tarangg, were offloaded from an Air India flight to London last month after the airline officials at the Mumbai airport found that Tannmay’s passport number did not match with the one mentioned in his visa.

Manish, who works for a leading telecom company, said that this was to be the family’s first vacation abroad, and the cancellation has resulted in them suffering a loss of around 2,800 pounds (Rs 2.7 lakh).
