GUNTUR: Guntur special branch cops are using tabs to complete passport inquiries and submit the report in real time. Recently, the cops completed inquiries of 100 passport applicants in a mere three days, with the help of tabs. Guntur Urban SP Sarvasreshth Tripathi said that if the applicants provide correct information, then the inquiry process can completed within hours, helping them get their passports early. Ever since passport services have gone online, lives of applicants have become easier.

Earlier, they had to do multiple rounds of the passport office.  Among the important processes of getting a passport, the police verification process, remained manual which was delaying the entire system. Under manual system, the cops had to receive requisition from the passport office concerned. After that, special branch police would conduct the inquiry and submit report in writing, making the process lengthy, sometimes taking months.

 

Now that Guntur SB police have adopted the online system, the months or weeks have been shortened into days. Applicants D. Rama Rao and others said that now, the verification is being done within hours helping the applicants get passport early. “We are saving on tatkal fee,” said Mr Rama Rao. Mr Tripathi said that applicants should reveal correct information to the inquiry officer to submit the report online.
