Shockingly High Mutation Fees @ Bidhannagar Municipal

We had applied in 2018 , for mutation of a small 2 BHK Flat , market value being about 28 lakhs. Its a resale property , that is we did not buy from the builder but from a previous owner, and no previous mutation was done. Recently we received a call from the Mutation office @ Municipal , and have been gven a paper to deposit Rs.45, 000 as Mutation Fees. Since 4 months we have been requesting to give us the details, of how they calculated to come up with this figure of Rs. 45,000/- They get angry and just mention this is the rate and this is so and so..but not willing to share the calculation or explain properly. We know of several other cases in the neighbours who also have paid the mutation fees, for similar flat, but its even 50% less than what we are being asked to pay. Our question is why they cant share the brreakup of this 45,000/ ? Is it very confidential, and not supposed to be shared or explained the details , so they cant show us the calculation they have done ? What can we do ? Can we approach Consumer court or make an appeal through a lawyer ? Please help. Thank you
