Thread: Passport lost by post office

  1. #1

    Passport lost by post office

    i have applied for passport as government employee (defence air force ) on 05 may 2008 my file no was g000347 but i have not yet received my passport .

    I have gone to passport office many times they informed that they have despatched it on 03 oct 08 vide registered letter no p008672.

    But post office has lost my passport in transit as informed by amritsar post office. Amritsar post office is telling that they have sent it to delhi post for onward delivery and they have lost. Delhi post office is neither giving reply nor delivering passport.

    I personally met three times with mr sodhi passport officer amritsar office. He told me to bring lost in transit certificate from post office thats why i havebeen tracking post office
    i have tracked whole two year for tracing my passport with post office and passport amritsar passport office has forwarded all correspondence to me telling delhi is not replying so u directly enquire to them

    my point is this why i should track to post office ,i have paid fees to passport office not to post office .though i was doing but now situation has gone beyond my control.i can not force post office to give reply or issue lost in transit certificate.

    Its my humble request to do needful so that i can get my passport

    You may file RTI application with the ACPIO/POST MASTER of any post office seeking details of delivery of envelope and status of your complaints. All postmasters are designated as ACPIO by dept of post. You can pay Rs.10/- in cash at that post office or through IPO. Please refer:

    Long pending? :

    Central Govt application:

    Make effective:

    I may add that there is some section [mostly section 6] under Indian Post Office Act 1898, where by post offices are not liable for any loss to addressee or sender of any post, unless malafides are proved.

    You may also scale up to:

    Deputy Director General (Postal Grievances and Quality Assurance)
    Department of Posts,
    3rd Floor, Dak Bhavan, Parliament Street, New Delhi. 110116
    Telephone 23096087 / 23036433
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
