Reissuing a passport in India


Getting a passport issued/reissued today is no longer a torture. The process is streamlined and very user friendly.
I submitted my application online, got an appointment at a Passport Seva Kendra, where I submitted all necessary documents and got an acknowledgement, all within four hours, in comfort!
Passport will be couriered home in a fortnight!

Update: Received the passport at home in 6 days from the day I submitted the documents!

  6. ...no longer a torture "in Bombay"...but then it will not be a 55er with an addition of 2 words:)
    So, let's say it is a real "Fiction-55" for lots of other town dwellers!
    Congrats Deepak on hassle free passport service in your town, we console ourselves by thinking 'If Bombay today then may be other towns tomorrow..':)
