Re: passport status
Welcome to this portal. A little time invested in navigating through this site will enable U to effectively deal with such delays and indifference towards citizens.
I have posted a blog for delay in issue/renewal of passport on 20-06-2008. Why not make use of it in your case? Please do not address in personal name, as officers get transfered. All the best.
Incidentally I have posted article on 20-06-2008 in GUIDE section which deals with information pertaining to Tamilnadu Govt. It would be useful to you in future.
It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
