Get Indian Passport In Just 10 Days through Online Process

IMG_0027To expedite the passport issuing system, the ministry of external affairs (MEA) has now decided to rely on Aadhaar card for identification of the applicant and on the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) database for validation of his/her criminal antecedents.

The simplified police verification system seeks to resolve issues raised from time to time regarding prior police verification and consequent delay in issuance of passports. In the new format, the applicant would apply online; he or she needs only to attach the Aadhaar card as the sole address and identity proof. The applicant will get the appointment within three days and in another seven days, the passport will be processed and dispatched.


Here is how you can get passport in JUST 10 DAYS through online process:

Step 1 – Register through the Passport Seva Online Portal. (Click on “Register” link under the Apply section on the Home Page).
