In the last post, I discussed on how to make an appointment with the PSK (Passport Seva Kendra). If you have not read the previous post, I suggest you to click this link to go back to the previous post which focuses on getting an Appointment with PSK. Passport Seva Kendra Process: – Part 1.
In this post I will focus on the process that you have to go through when you arrive at PSK. PSK has divided the entire process into 5 Steps. The 5 steps are: General Check, A, B, C, and Exit. I will be explaining what each of this mean in this post.
This is the first step when you arrive at PSK. You can arrive before your appointment time. You will be sent in. You can arrive half an hour before your appointment time. If you are late then you won’t be allowed to enter PSK. So make sure you arrive in time.
When you arrive at PSK, the guards outside will check your appointment letter and you need to show some identity proof. After which you will be allowed to enter and they will specify which counter you should go to. If you are a Tatkal then you will have a separate counter. In the counter, you need to show your documents and passport. If all the documents are satisfied, you will be given a token number. You need to wait until your token number is called to go to the next step.
Step: – A
In step A, you will be given a counter number, where you need to proceed to. In that counter, they will let you see all the details and confirm that all the details are correct. After that a photo will be taken for the passport. No need to carry any photos from home. After they take your photo, fingerprint scan takes place. All your documents are scanned and you need to pay the required amount there itself. A Fee receipt will be given to you immediately. After completing this step you are allowed to go towards the next step which is Step B.
Step: – B
After completing Step A, you need to wait till your token number is called to proceed for Step B. In Step B you will face Government Official who will again verify all your documents. If he/she has some query with respect to any document, he/she will ask you to clarify that, otherwise they won’t ask you anything in Step B. After going through all your Documents you will proceed towards the next step which is Step C.
Step C: –
After completing Step B, you need to wait till your token number is called to proceed for Step C. In Step C you will again face a Government Official. The Official will ask you some basic questions like ‘Why are you applying for your passport?’, ‘Is there any immediate travel that you are planning?’ etc. After that the official will again check the documents and may ask to provide the originals just for verifying. After checking everything, you are done and you can move towards the next step, which is Exit.
After you finish Step C, you will approach towards the Exit. You will be given a Sheet which will contain all your details like Application Number, Your Personal Details etc. You will be asked to fill a feedback form and then you can move out of the PSK Premises.
This is the entire process that is followed is PSK. May sure you take all the documents photocopy and the originals too. Documents Photocopy can be taken within the PSK Premises also.
