Passport police verification pending
Dear Sir, I applied for passport on 1st September 2016. I finished every procedure and formalities at Surat passport office. My police verification has not started and is still pending even after so much time. I need passport urgently. What can I do about this? is there any way to make police verification fast?
The procedure of obtaining a passport is covered under the RTI Act as the same is conducted by a public authority.
You could file a RTI application seeking information about the reasons regarding the delay in issuance of your passport along with the details of the officers involved in processing your passport application. Under Section 2(f), you could obtain certified copies of the relevant and documents and records in this regard.
