Police verification will be done later. In my case I got my passport renewed in October (passport was dispatched in a week). Police verification happened only by end Jan.

Got a call from the local police station, went there with an address proof, copy of the old passport, 3 photographs and the verification process was one in 15 minutes. Everything was professionally handled and no "tea money" exchanged hands! Unbelievable experience.

Will police verification mandatorily happen or should I go to the station and check?

I need to travel in March and don't want any unexpected issues. Please suggest.

I opted for tatkaal and for that they somehow want 2 address proofs.
I thought for Tatkal, you need 3 address proofs. What are the other proofs they accept apart from the normal ones? Will company letter work?

Default Re: Passport Renewal Procedure

Guys,

I'm looking forward to get the following things done.

1> Renew my existing passport (expires on Feb 12 - this was issued in Ahmedabad and now I want to renew at Bangalore).
2> Get my wife's name endorsed on my passport (she doesnt have one)
3> Get a new passport for my wife and get my name added to it

Based on the list of documents, I have some primary details, I would like to ask about the marriage certificate here. I dont have one and got my invitation card and marriage pic to either get an affidavit or if possible, get the marriage certificate done itself before I go with the above steps. Can someone tell me which one will be better, an affidavit or the marriage certificate itself and how long it may take!

Company has to be a govt one. They mention it explicitly. However in Bangalore they accepted the address proof on Nokia letter head. So I guess it depends on mood of those guys. Better not to take chances.

I will still say Bank account statements are best way out.

Or else if you have postpaid mobile bills, but one from this year and another from last year.

You should try to get the marriage certificate. Not only for passport but in a general sense too.

Remember for passport purposes the copy of Marriage Certificate needs to be attested (Not self attested).

@A.R: Its better you go to Police Station and ask about it. Keep your file number handy.

Guys

My current passport is issued by Vizag RPO which is due to expire in June 2012. I need to apply for renewal from Pune RPO where I have been living since 2007. I am applying through tatkal.

I have the following as address proofs for my residence in Pune for continuously 3 yeas :

1) DL
2) Gas connection.
3) bank statements
4) mobile bills

Can I apply to tatkaal with these? Or should I get annexure f? IF i need to get Annexure F, from whom?

^^you need to have a verification letter as well from a officer of the rank of IAS or those listed on website . make sure that that you have his photo Id card xerox with you as well. pls have atleast 2 copies of verification letter from him signed in original . if possible get the verification letter from SHO of your police station .

Also Pls carry Along your all original documents .

between in certain RPO;s , TCS has finally taken over the process from Govt officials and they are issuing passports now applied via Normal route. for Tatkal application, one still need to go to govt officials.

check the below website . one can apply online as well.

Passport Seva Portal

Should be OK I guess. I traveled twice with the renewed passport before the PV was done.

First please check whether the "Police verification" column is mentioned as "Post" in your acknowledgement slip. It it is mentioned as "No", then there won't be any police verification for you.

If police verification is required for you, then please enquire with your local police station. This will avoid unpleasant surprises especially when you are about to fly abroad.

I could not submit my reissue application via Tatkaal, the guy at the front office seem to be determined not to accept any tatkaals. Nevertheless, submitted my application through normal procedure at Pune RPO on 17th.

However, the online status page keeps giving me a message that "The file name is wrong or information is NOT available" is this expected? How long to wait before the status is updated once we submit the application?

I went to the police station last Friday. The person present there asked me about the address, including drawing a small map to show the location of the apartment. At first, he mentioned that my file had not come from the passport office and that his police station was not the right one. After insisting that all the applications from my apartment came to this police station only, he reluctantly printed out my application. He then checked a ledger they maintain for all passport verification's that they need to do and to my surprise, my details were entered there on 5th January itself (2 days after applying for the renewed passport). He then verified all the documents, asked for a latest bill for the documents submitted by me. I only had the latest phone bill which I took along and gave it. I also gave 3 photographs and signed the required documents along with a letter addressed to the inspector of the police station requesting for completing police verification while stating my current and permanent address, the date from which I was staying at my current address and that I had good character !

After submission, gave some "tea-money" and was told that they will visit my home within 2 days. No one has come till now though! My guess is that they will never come to visit and that my verification is over.
