I had applied for my passport in July'07. I had recently moved to Andheri then.Hence my application demanded i give my previous address proof too 9.i.e vasai falling under Dist Thane). The local police (Andheri) cleared my verification however i had to have vasai police clear it too.After a month i receive a letter from Passport office worli to come there.On meeting the Passport officer i was told photographs were missing from my application and vasai police is yet to clear it. I gave the reqd. photographs. Then i went to Vasai police station where i came to know my file never reached them. They asked me to contact Thane passport office, Did that and they say they too never received it.
Then my father went to the passport office. With the help of an opfficer there the same file was "reopened" (i also filled a new pp form)as by this time i had already spoent 1 year at andheri and second address proof was not reqd. Again police comes for verification and now they say they never received the police report (Andheri police did give me the outward number) and i have to get vasai report cleared and also fill out a new pp form.Please advise what must i do. Filling anew PP form is again a lot of hassle. I want to know where did Andheri (DN Nagar) police report go and why is my passport being delayed.
PS. a similar issue was faced by my brother and his file too was "reopened". We both went for the verification the same day to DN Nagar Police station (the second time) and his report has been received by the passport office. Our reports were also sent by police to passport office the same day. If his is cleared why not mine?
Can anyone help me out and tell me whom i must contact and how exactly must i go about sending an rti application and also what information should i "precisely" ask for?
