1. )  Photo Requirements

For New born and child upto the age of 4 yrs there is a requirement to carry 1 passport photograph. The photograph which we carry is scanned and then returned back  by the  Passport processing Associate in the passport seva kendra.

create a login user name and password in the site.

Either you can fill the form online or offline by downloading the form. once you are logged in through username and password.

after submitting the application you can fix the appointment time with PSK.

All Tatkal slots for next day are opened one day before. be ready to book the slot at 8 a.m. Slots are on first come first serve basis.

steps for getting passport.

1) Arrange all necessary Documents

2) fix up an appointment at PSK

3) Be available at the psk office at the given Appointment time. (my suggestion take slots avbl in morning. by chance if some documents are required you can go and arrange for it.)

4) Visit token issue counter first. Associate  verifies all documents and then issues token.

5) collect the token and enter inside to the Waiting lounge. TV Displays are provided. It displays token number and subsequent counter number u to visit.

6) A=>B=>C=>   are the three stages one has to pass through for granting of passport

A=> Passport Processing zone (here associate checks and uploads all your supporting documents into the server and captures the photograph for adult or scans the photo in case of Infants). in psk sai arcade 27 A counters are available.

once it is done u are sent to V.O (verification officer) to B counters.

B=> Verification Officer verifies all documents

then he sends the file to C (Granting Zone)

C=> Granting officer finally verifies once again and if all docs are perfect. He Grants the passport.

once  Granting is done passport reaches your Home in less than 5 days.

Notes :

 Make sure Birth certificate is perfect.

Child name on Passport application and birth certificate are same.
Fathers and Mothers name mentioned in child Birth certificate exactly matches to the names of parents as mentioned in their Passports.

Address in Birth certificate, Applicants Passport Address and one of the parents Passport are inline.
Double make sure all names and addresses you mention in the application  and supporting documents have consistency.
thanks  for going through this post please do put your comments..

All the best.
