See, I'm not here for a fight., but I think spending in Indian rupees is far costlier than to spend in Euros! So cheer up!

Aarrgh I hate this ***.
My primary university allows me to send as many transcripts as required as long I pay the postal fees. Cool.
However, I have taken ONE course in another university. It's not related to anything I'm going to study (I took it for fun), and I got the perfect grade. And the university in question requires a payment of FIVE *** EUROS (about 7 USD) per transcript. And I, of course, require two transcripts per university I'm applying to, one in my native language and one in English.
So, for this one stupid shitty course I have to pay over 200 USD, or risk being considered a cheater for not providing all the transcripts. I mean, where the *** the 200 USD comes from? The postal fees are approximately 30 USD total....so they take 170 frigging USD for printing the transcripts, stamping them, putting them into envelopes and taking them to mail office, which can not take more than 20 minutes of active work time, because I'll provide the address labels. Nice hourly pay.
*** *** ***. That's two universities more I could be applying to.
I'm so sick of being an international bitch. Paying assloads of money (about $450) for a formality like TOEFL, and then this ***. In the next life (which will happen quite soon at this rate) I'll only apply to my local universities, no matter how shitty they are.

Most of the schools specifically ask with a very strict wording for official transcript from every institute where credits were gained, and I fear that by doing what's sensible I'd only give them excuses to drop me from consideration. Then again, I believe most members of admissions committees are humans, therefore maybe understanding my problem. I mean, $200 is quite a lot, but I'd pay it any second if I knew it made the difference between being admitted and not being admitted. Luckily, now that I've begun to review the transcript requirements carefully, it seems that I don't have to send it to every place after all.
Edit: Because my writing does not seem to be very positive today, I want to explicitly add that I thank you for the advice - I surely will do that as soon as I know if it is really okay or not.
