The issuance of passports might become all the more easy as the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj now launched a Passport Seva app.
The EAM Sushma Swaraj said that passport application from anywhere in India as well as filling passport application forms from mobile phones will become easier hereafter.
She was addressing the officials of several Passport Seva Kendras and members of the Ministry of External Affairs on the occasion of Passport Seva Diwas on Tuesday.
She further said that the new passport centres now function in separate northeast regions of the country as opposed to a single centre in Guwahati, which catered to the passport seekers of all the neighbouring regions up until now.
She said that while in the first two phases, 251 passports registration centres out of which 212 centres are already established, it is in the third phase that 38 additional centres were announced out of which two centres have been operationalised.
She announced that passport centres will be expanded to all Lok Sabha constituencies in the near future.
Currently, the officers of the External Affairs Ministry are making a list of areas where new passport centres will be made.>
