Citizens will be granted a fresh passport under the normal category in a week if their applications are accompanied by three documents – copies of Aadhaar card, electoral photo identity card (EPIC) and PAN card – besides an affidavit in the format of Annexure-I (declaration of citizenship, family details and no criminal record).
Police verification of such applications will be conducted after the passport is issued. There will be no extra charge for the service, a statement issued by the ministry said. The process is subject to online validation of the Aadhaar number while processing and an approval from the granting officer.
It’s nice step taken by MEA (Ministry of External Affairs), we hope it really helpful for citizens and they will get their passport in limited frame of time.
