Excerpt of EAM’s Message on completion of 50 years of the Passports Act, 1967.

  • It is a matter of immense pleasure for me to felicitate all our Passport Issuing Authorities in India and abroad on the occasion of the Fifth Passport Seva Divas on 24th June, 2017. This year we are celebrating the completion of 50 Years of the enactment of the Passports Act, 1967.
  • We have teamed up with the Department of Posts to utilize the Head Post Offices as Post Office Passport Seva Kendras (POPSK) in order to extend passport services to our citizens on a larger scale and for ensuring wider area coverage. We have decided to set up 235 POPSK in two phases-86 in Phase-I and 149 in Phase-II. It is a matter of satisfaction that 52 POPSK in Phase-I have already been operationalized.
  • As part of our simplification drive, we have permitted submission of several new documents as proof of date of birth and removed several Annexes to the Passport Rules. Our effort would be to continue to provide good governance, effective, transparent and accountable service delivery in the coming days.
  • I take this opportunity to request you to rededicate yourself to our Government’s commitment to the principle of ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance’ and work towards putting in place more inclusive and robust mechanisms to achieve our objectives.
