Passport / place of issue name overwritten

1 India Review updated:

Dear Sir/Madam,

The place of issue field in the passport has been overwritten by the Passport authority.
Due to which, the German consulate has rejected the visa application.
And my flight is for 25th of this month.

So what steps should I follow to quickly sort out this issue.

Please note :My passport was issue from Patna Bihar in 1999, at that time the our current residence state Jharkhand was not formed.
Where should I lodged the complain? (Patna or Ranchi)?

Your kind assistance/suggestion in this respect is highly appreciated.
