Verification by Police for Passports-indianbureaucracy

Minister of State for the external Affairs Gen. Dr. V. K. Singh (Retd.) has informed that the desired timeline for completion of the Police Verification (PV) by State/UT Police is 21 days.  As regards verification of other documents, there is no timeline for completion of verification of other documents.  Generally, verification of other documents is done only for those documents which are not found satisfactory by the Verification Officer (VO)/Granting Officer (GO) of the Central Passport Organisation. If any discrepancy or doubt is noticed in the veracity of the document, VO/GO sends the document(s) to the originator of the document for verification and confirmation of its genuineness.

As per the current System, only those applications are kept on hold for which the Passport Issuing Authority (PIA) has asked for some more documents or for verification of the submitted documents from the originator.  In such cases, action is taken by the PIA after receipt of verification/confirmation from the originator.

 As regards police verification report, the applications fall under three categories viz. (i) No-PV, (ii) Pre-PV and (iii) Post-PV. While No-PV and Post-PV applications are granted immediately if found to be satisfactory in all respects, the Pre-PV cases only await receipt of Police Verification Report for which desired timeline is 21 days. The position with regard to police verification pending over 21 days during the last 3 years is given at Annexure.
