Apply Passports in Post Office: Coming Soon

As a joint venture from Ministry of External Affairs and Department of Post Office, pilot projects will be inaugurated to simplify the delivery of the Passports to travel abroad. These post offices will have post office passport seva kendra (POPSK). Secretary D Mulay said, “This is for the first time minister of external affairs will be formally giving the powers under Passport Act to the post office. It’s a unique feature where one ministry is giving the power to another ministry to act on its behalf, so in a sense postal officers will actually be exercising powers under the Passport Act.”
