Online verification of passport in a month

BANGALORE: Police verification for passport applicants will be done online within a month across the state, thus speeding up the process for passport aspirants.

"We have successfully launched the police verification for passports online in Bangalore directly from 102 police stations in the city. We have trained 204 police personnel for this work. The day the passport applications are submitted at the regional passport office or passport seva kendas (PSKs), the verification will reach the police stations. Police have to check the antecedents of applicants and return the verification forms immediately," said Praveen Sood, additional director general of police (police computer wing).

He told STOI that a similar process is on the anvil and will be extended to all 906 police stations across the state. "We have increased the bandwidth for the purpose in all police stations here. A similar process is on for police stations across the state," he said.

He said the delay at present could be because of the large backlog in each police station in the city. "Each police station has to sent these verification forms back to the regional passport office as quickly as possible so that they can also clear the pending files. It depends on police personnel trained for this purpose to speed up the procedure," he said.

He said the uploading of these verification forms from RPO has become faster. "Within a month the entire state will benefit from the speedy process," he hoped.
