Passport Office, Bangalore / Passport issue delay

1 India Review updated:

I have applied for a new passport on 14th Dec'07 in Bangalore. As my stay in Bangalore at that time was less than 1 year, the police verification had to be done both in Bangalore and my native place (Assam). But, now its more than 6 months and I have not yet received my passport. As verified with the police authorities in both the places, the verification report has already been sent by them to the passport authorities, Bangalore. But, when inquiring with the Passport Office, Bangalore, they are saying that they have not yet received the police verification report. When trying to call them up in the inquiry phone number, its very seldom that I get a response from the office. Also, its never possible to ask them a second question about the status and how can I proceed to get any update. The gentleman/lady receiving the call bangs the phone in seconds.
As I need the passport urgently to travel with my husband who would be traveling abroad shortly for a long term, I would like to request to kindly let me know some way to get any update regarding my passport status so that I can follow up regarding the same with the authorities if needed.

    Respected sir, this is Shaik Sanaullah, I am one among the Bangalore citizens who is facing a REAL problem for receiving my passport. Let me keep my conversation in brief I have submitted my application on 8/5/2008.And there were some discrepancies which I have cleared 15 working days ago. The online status says “we have received your police verification report your file is sent for further processing “. Sir I work in Night Shifts so its quite impossible for me to come in the morning to kormangala. I Plead you to send my passport since my company is planning me to send me abroad for business purpose. I hope you understand my situation .And I have been sending mails to problr@dataone.in I forget the count how many? Once again kindly revert back ASAP..

    Hi Friends,

    In all of your situations it seems like that you guys havent paid the Bribe to the police people.

    The Police person who signs the verification sheet charges 300 - 500 bucks.

    Police people's has divided the bribe into two catogeries also:

    South Indian: 200, 300 (denominations)
    North Indian: 300, 400 and 500.

    After politicians these people are ruining the Country.

    police authorities are the main cause for delay in peoples passport, they ask for bribe in police stations
    and they only work for money.. if this same problem persists our india will not develop in future.
    police authorities demand for only bribes. rich people can pay bribe charges but what about the pooors..!!!
    first of all the lokayukta should be strengthened to cribe this problem.

    Sir,

    This is in regards to the passpoort application made by me last month.Last weekl I got a call from the local police station(Madiwala, Bangalore) for verification.
    I was asked for 2 copies of SIMILAR photograph which I had pasted on the passport application form.I asked the lady as to why nobody told me when they called me.She replied that the cannot waste their currency by calling us .I told her infact I had called up to enquire about what things I need to bring along with.She said that they dont have time to answer our queries.
    I really didnot expect such kind of a rude behaviour from her.
    After filling another form the lady asked me to pay Rs.200 without any receipt.The lady also asked me for extra Rs.300 to get the file passed by the commissioner.I refused.
    You cannot argue with police staffs.
    They are supposed be be protectors of LAW how ever they have their own laws.

    Can someone answer as to why these practices exist?
    Arent these people ashamed of what they are doing?
    So many people are raising their issues on these kind of forums but I wonder whether any of their issue is resolved or not.
    But those people who are a part of these entire corruption should be penalized.
