Passport Application to Police Verification Process Online in India

Passport Application Process Explained in 2017. Experience of Police Verification Process and Passport Documents for Expired, Reissue, Minors

 

Passport Application Process Experience

Passport Application Process has become so simplified and efficient that I was amazed on the levels of Functionality.

We applied for Passport where in

» One Passport was Expired more than 3 years back

» Second Passport was Expired 1 Year Back

» Have to Get All New Passport for Kids (Minor Category)

Herein detailing in the brief Process of Passport

Step – 1 – Online Application

» You need to visit PassportIndia Website and create a New User Account. Even if you are applying for Multiple Passports for yourself or your family members – you only need to create one account and can submit all applications of passport from this user account

» Once the User account is created – login and will see Options om the Left Hand site – Apply for Fresh Passport / Reissue of Passport

» There are 2 Options which will come in – Apply Offline or Apply Online. We strongly recommend to use Apply Offline Mode (as the forms needs to be thoroughly checked to avoid any spelling mistake or other error). In Apply Offline Mode – you can download in application Form which will come in Zip File which will open the form in PDF.

You can Fill in blank fields mentioned in this PDF Online and save Information for completing it later. Once the Form filled completely you can validate and save which will save a XML File on your desktop/laptop. This XML file can thus be uploaded in Passport India Site

» On uploading this XML File you will have to confirm for SMS (recommended for SMS Facility as its very useful in getting periodic updates of File movement of your passport – post submission). Then check and choose the PSK (Passport Seva Kendra) nearest to your place, slot availability and pay online fees of Rs 1500 (through Internet Banking, Debit Card or Credit Card). On Payment – you will get confirmation of Appointment Confirmation which can be downloaded.

 

Step – 2 Arrange Documents

Here is Brief Documents checklist. Take Originals and 2 Clear Self Attested Photocopies of below :-

» ID Proof (Advisable to have Aadhaar Card / PAN Card / Election Card)

» Address Proof (Electricity Bill / Water Bill / Landline Telephone Bill / Post Paid Telephone Bill / Bank Passbook with Address on it. If address in name of spouse – may take his / her ID Proof with relationship proof document. If do not have any document as above and staying on rent and has rent agreement then to be noted that Only Registered Rent Agreement is acceptable. Pls note that Notarized Rent agreement on rs 100 stamp paper is not registered rent agreement. You have to apply for registered rent agreement through SDM Office by paying in applicable fees

» Date of birth Proof – Advisable to take Matric - Class X Marksheet as this will work for both Date of Borth and Non ECR Proof. We also too Class XII Marksheet copy with us

» If Old Passport is there – you have to take Old Passport with Photocopies of First 2 Pages and Last 2 Pages along with ECNR not required photocopy

» Print out of Appointment Confirmation reciept

That’s all – No need of any Passport Size Photographs, no Marriage Certificate, no Notarized Copies

 

Step – 3 Visit PSK (Passport Seva Kendra)

You only need to reach in 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to Passport Seva Kendra with the Original Documents and Print outs. Advisable to carry documents in file and folder with the Print Outs to be made as set of 2 documents.

If have Minor Application for Passport – One Adult can accompany One Minor Child.

On arrival – you have to submit in photocopy of documents at the reception counter, The person will then announce in your name in another 10 to 15 minutes and will give you token number.

This token number will when shown in computerized screen. You will then move to the requisite desk which is allotted to your Token

Counter A – The Person will check your ID Proof, Matric Marksheet, ask for photocopies, ask for Old Passport in Original. Check and confirm details as submitted. If any modification needs to be done in details – it needs to be mentioned here in only. He will then take your Photo through Camera connected to Desktop and will also take Rs 45 as fees for SMS. Finally will say to move to Counter B

Counter B – Your token will be shown and you have to visit in appropriate desk. The Person will also re-check your Original ID Proof and Old Passport.  and will initiate in  Passport Verification as required

Its over you will be asked to filled in Feedback form of Process.

The Entire Process of Entry to Exit took just 1 hour for us. If you have opted for SMS Confirmation – you will now start receiving in SMS

 

Step - 4 Police Verification for Passport

Now – Passport are issued in 2 ways

» Passport Issued subject to Post Police Verification

» Pre Police Verification needed for Issuance of Passport

In our case – we got one passport issued subject to Post Police Verification and one passport subject to Pre Police Verification. The Difference is – Passport Office will Print, Laminate and dispatch the passport in Scenario 1 without waiting for Police Verification. This is faster as we got Passport exactly in 7 days from the date of appointment. But you can not travel Internationally as the Police Verification remain pending and need to be completed before Travel.

While in Second Case of Pre Police Verification – the Police Verification is done pre hand and post successfully verification by Police – the Passport Office will then only Printed in and dispatched the Passport.

We received in SMS of Police Verification with even Name and Contact Details of Police Officer and mentioned that Police Officer will call us to make visit within next 10 days. We did not called him back as was in no hurry or had any immediate plans

Passport VerificationPolice Verification for Passport

For Police Verification (conducted on 5th Day after Visit to PSK) – Was It was a brezze, the Officer called at around 5 pm to confirm if we are at home. I told him to visit at 6 pm if possible – he confirmed okay and asked to have photocopies of documents and Original Documents.

The Police Officer (ASI - Narender Kumar, Dwarka South Police Station) was very Courteous, visited at 6.05 pm - had a glass of water. We offered him tea and cookies – which he said no but on our insist said okay for same

Very Professional, Very Courteous – checked documents, took photocopies, asked us to sign on verification paper. Said all okay – asked for neighbor reference check, we called nearby neighbor and he took there sign. That’s all

Even the Person Officer – when we interacted informally – took active participation in telling about himself, passport cases and how smooth the process is for people who are genuine and having complete documents.

At end – we said him thanks, he told that we have his number and we can call him any time.

No Bribe – No Money been asked – No Problems been created. It was a clean, courteous and professional behavior. Even the Person interacted with our kids and blessed them to shine in life.

We asked if Police Verification needed for Kids - it was told that there is no Police Verification required for Minor - if Parents have Valid Passport. So - now we are again starting Process for Kids Passport Application.

On the 4th Day of Police Verification – we received SMS that Police has submitted clear report for your current Address.  

A Happy Passport Issuance process without any Hassles. The Same process was later on followed  with the Parents also and again a breeze with excellent Police Officer ASI Narender Kumar (Dwarka South) for his kind, courteous behaviour.

Kudos to Sushma Swaraj Maa’m for creating such an easy and smooth process for Passport Issuance. This is very much in sync to the the Vision Statement as set. My Compliments to Verification Officer in Dwarka South Police Station for showing such Courteous and Professional Approach.

Good to hear that the police verification process in your case was so smooth.
But in my case its the opposite. I did not recieve any call or text message from the concerned police officer regarding my police verification. So, I had to go to the police station. And I have no idea how many more days is it going to take.

Hello,

I dont have experience regarding rented place, but most likely to the best of my understanding - why would landlord presence be required ?
Unless you are declaring him as reference, then only you may need him to be present for signing in reference form, else i dont think there is any need of owner to be present, as long as you are able to furnish residence proof which are more than a year old

As mentioned - yes references need to be present, i can tell you that references may be different from what mentioned on application form
Like you mentioned your neighbor and suppose his wife or say other family member is there - you may call them to sign on passport verification

Police person whom i met was thorough professional and much co-operative as he understand how ground level things work
Hope should help !!
