    Default Re: 3 months, no passport.


    My police verification was done last week Sunday by someone who supposedly arrived from the Special Branch. Took Rs.100 for petrol and 'other' things, although he asked from Rs200. I paid since I did not want to pick up a fight or get into an argument. I felt ashamed, but had no choice.

    The passport status page still says "Police report not received", not sure how long they take to update it. I plan to go for RTI after waiting for 2 more weeks for the status to change.

    Re: 3 months, no passport.


    Okay, more than 15 days since my report was submitted to the passport office according to Hyderabad Police website. See this: http://i53.tinypic.com/adjbsz.png

    However, the passport status page still says "Police Report has not been received"

    I'm running out of patience on this one as it has been 4 months already. What do you think I should do now? Go and waste my time running around the Regional Passport Office, or send an RTI application?

    If sending an RTI, I think it'd make sense to first gather evidence from Police for the report dispatch and then send that proof to Regional Passport office? Is that right?

    Please help

    Thanks,
    Sanjay

    That is correct.
    The police will give you a file number or a docket number and a bundle number along with the date on which that bundle was sent to the passport office.
    This will make your RTI application more effective.

    Thanks Karira. I noticed you are from Secunderabad. Could you help me with the right office/officer to send this to in Hyderabad? Passports are handled by Special Branch here, but I couldn't find their website or anything on the Internet!

    The SB office is located in front of (or opposite) Prasad IMAX theatre.
    You will have to visit them personally.
    There is no web based system available.

    Okay, after much more waiting, the status on the Passport page now says: FURNISH EXPLANATION FOR SUPPRESSION OF MATERIAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE PREVIOUS PASSPORT AND SURRENDER THE SAME.

    Has anyone faced this, or seen this before? Suppression of information about previous passport? I applied for passport-renewal, how can that be "suppressed". Do they want me to surrender my previous passport? I just don't get it. Please enlighten me!

    Thanks much for your inputs!

    Best is to go meet the PRO and find out what it is all about.
    Please restrict your queries and discussions on this portal to the RTI Act 2005.
