    If you are not satisfied with reply of CPIO and First Appellate Authority, then only way out is second appeal to Central Information Commission. You may refer:


    In case if information is not available with CPIO, he should mention so against query.

    RTI Act is for getting information, while in your case, you have sought answers to questions. Hence it would have been advisable if queries are worded in request form e.g.

    Please inform details of documents/papers on which police dept base its report in the matter of PV for passport.

    In your own case, through fresh RTI to concerned passport office, you can seek certified photocopies of police verification report and documents/papers submitted by police dept on the basis of which police report is compiled.

    First acquaint with the procedure in full. File application and seek information on procedure to be adopted by local police for verification of passports, laid down guidelines. As far as I know, PPO never imposes any guidelines but only insist for such report in a format. It is State Police that devised the procedure, and depending on case to case the process may vary on circumstances.
    To be precise, PPO wants verification report as per their format.
    The procedure of giving such report and steps are take by police as per their laid down procedure.
    Hence to my knowledge, PPO is not concerned with Police procedure.
