Default Re: PCC - Police Clearance Certificate

After the Superintendent of Police office uploaded the verification document, the status on the website read like this:
PCC application granted on 23/03/2015. Police Verification has been initiated and a request has been sent to SP Office, Bengaluru Rural. After 'Clear' Police Verification Report is received at Regional Passport Office, PCC needs to be collected from the Passport Seva Kendra where you applied. You would receive an e-mail/sms once the PCC is ready for collection.

I couldn't figure out what it meant. So, I went to PSK today (3 days after SP office updated the document). And they gave me the PCC.

One thing is clear to me: the status shown on the website may not really correspond to real status. Best thing to do is, go to PSK and check.

I stay in Pune and applied for a PCC on 20th Oct in PSK, Pune for an official travel to Brazil, my passport is issued from Hyderabad. After verification at local police station the docs were sent to SP office at pashan Road(as my area of residence was under Rural police station). This happened after a lot of follow up and 2weeks of time.
With the festive season coming in between, no progress from the SP office happened and when i went there last week, the officer was supportive enough to send the docs the same day to Passport office (atleast that's what he mentioned) and asked me to visit the Passport office at SB Marg after a couple of days.
On first instance, the guy @enquiry asked me to come back after few days as they did not receive the hard copy of the documents(which the officer mentioned were sent and would have to be scanned and uploaded by the passport officials, which they did not appear to have done). I went again on last Friday, where the guy @enquiry let me inside the Office with a signature and Counter number on my Acknowledgement receipt. I was happy enough with a hope that I would receive the PCC, as i was being let in, which actually wasn't the case.
I had to wait for my turn,which took close to 4hrs, and the very "respectful" lady at the counter was delighted to say that she can't see my application and asked me to check with the guys at SP office. I called the guy immediately and mentioned my situation. He was surprised to hear and said that my docs may not have been scanned and uploaded yet. He suggested me to go this week again.

The whole experience with the govt. employees has been bad, utter negligence and carelessness is what I can mention, though there are good, kind and humble officers. I was so fed up that I applied again for a PCC from Hyderabad and got it immediately(since my passport was from Hyd).

PS: If you are looking for a PCC, do apply from where your passport was issued, Unless you have nobody staying at the address mentioned in your passport.

If I recollect correctly , in case Passport is not very old ( perhaps 2-3 Years ) then PCC is issued by Passport office , you need to carry original Passport - it should be issued same day - they don't wait for any report from Police , unless there has been some recent changes .

I'm really not sure about the time frame you mentioned bro. I wish they could just have a track of the criminal database,if any, common across states. That would definitely save all the time consumed for police verification. May be they thought, we'd realize the value of a piece of paper when we do all this follow up.

Wow, this forum has a thread for EVERYTHING

I see that there is an option to get the PCC through the Passport Office. There is a form you can fill in offline, approach the Passport Office with relevant documents and get the PCC. Anyone done this recently? My current address is different from the one on my passport. Can this PCC be used for Immigration purposes?

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, sadly, my current address is different - just 2 streets apart though

Yes this is preferred for immigration , have done this personal couple of years back . You will probably first need to get address changed on your passport and then apply , if your old address is on immigration documents better keep as it is , just ensure someone can forward post to you.

Thanks for the confirmation. I will check on what to do about the addresses being different though.
