On the occasion of Passport Seva Divas, the government launched a scheme under which a person can choose the Regional Passport Office (RPO) and the Passport Seva Kendra or Post Office Passport Seva Kendra for submitting the application.
Application can be submitted irrespective of whether the person's current residential address is within the jurisdiction of the selected RPO.
Police verification will be conducted at the address specified in the application form.
Passport will be printed and despatched by the selected RPO to the specified address.
The government also launched the 'mpassport seva app' which provides information on various steps involved to obtain a passport related service.
