POWER OF RTI IN CURTAILING DELAY IN PASSPORT

M. K. Gupta

Now, we can expect issue of passport without undue delay if we use RTI in case of delay. An applicant, named Amit applied for passport on 2nd June, 10 and the website of passport office was continuously showing status as police verification pending. He filed an RTI application to know about the status on 5th July which was delivered on 6th. Today, on 10th, just after 3/4 days, police verification was undertaken by an official.

We generally hear that the visiting official on this occasion demands money but surprisingly, there was no such expectation or demand. This seems the power of RTI application that immediately after its delivery, the police verification was over. Now, applicant expects to receive the passport shortly.
