This is not new with Passport Office Ghaziabad. Please get used to it. The waiting could go as long as years. I am not discourraging you but it is true with it.
They are too good at finding faults in your applications - even if it is irrelevant. Passports of my family members were ready in the month of May'07 for despatch but it never happened till September, 07. One with errors and one more in waiting for a non-sense discripancy.
I am fighting a similar case of my family members for nearly a year now through RTI and am very optimistic to bring it to a fruitful conclusion with the help of CIC and CVC.
Should you need any guidance in filing RTI application against the Passport Officer, Ghaziabad you may revert.
It is very simple. Address a simple RTI applicatioon to the Passport Officer, Ghaziabad with a Demand Draft of Rs.10/- favouring Passport Officer, Ghaziabad and frame your questions carefully avoiding " Why " etc. Send it either through a Registered/AD post or personally against an acknowledgement.
Ask for the information that you wish to including the notings of the files, concerned staff details, anything that you think is relevant and applicable to your passport application.
Ask for movement of your application from the date of filing your application and which officer kept it with him/her for how many days. You can ask for the staff strength, number of applications being handled per day per person, number of passports being despatched, date when your police verification was received and movement of your application after that etc. etc...
You must get reply to your application within 30 days ( 40 days maximum )
