Pune: A special passport drive will be organized in Pune city in the months of August & September 2023. The initiative, led by the Ministry of External Affairs, aims to facilitate smoother passport application processes for residents of Pune.

As per information certain Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) and Post Office Passport Seva Kendras (POPSKS) under the jurisdiction of the Regional Passport Office, Pune will remain open on the next 4 Saturdays from August 12, 2023 as part of the initiative to make passport appointments available at an earlier date. The applicants can book fresh appointments or reschedule their already booked appointments under both the Normal and Tatkal categories.

For obtaining a passport under the Tatkaal Scheme:

· Applicants over the age of 18 years have to submit any 3 documents listed at https://www.passportindia.gov.in/AppOnlineProject/online/tatkaal Passports plus address and non-ECR proofs, as applicable.

· Applicants below the age of 18 years have to submit any 2 documents listed at https://www.passportindia.gov.in/AppOnlineProject/online/tatkaal Passports plus address and non- ECR proofs, as applicable. [Please ensure that the details mentioned (such as complete name, Date of Birth, father’s name, etc) are the same in all the documents. Small cut-out Aadhaar cards/smart cards printed by non-UIDAI entities will not be accepted.

Please note that the Tatkaal scheme is a priority service and not a premium service. It requires more documents and has restricted eligibility criteria. The applications under the Tatkaal scheme must be made by only those applicants who really need passports on an urgent basis.

To book a fresh appointment, please fill in the application at https://www.passportindia.gov.in/and make the payment online. After that, please log in again to https://www.passportindia.gov.in/ to verify the payment status and book the appointment. Once done, the appointment confirmation receipt can be downloaded from the portal.

Many Tatkaal scheme applicants fall under ineligible categories and/or do not possess the required number of proper documents. To check the misuse and trivialisation of the Tatkaal scheme, the eligibility and document criteria are strictly enforced. Ineligible category and document deficient applications will not be accepted. On the day of their appointments at PSK, such applicants will have to request for an ‘Application EDIT’ option to convert the Tatkaal scheme applications into the Normal scheme applications and reschedule their appointments on their own.

For more details about the Tatkaal scheme, please read very carefully the information and undertaking available at https://www.passportindia.gov.in/AppOnline Project/online/tatkal Passports
