An all new Passport Seva Kendra for Aluva and Tripunithura
You got to log in to www.passportindia.gov.inÂ and submit the onlineÂ application. You will then get a date appointed to visit the Passport Seva Kendra (Passport Service Centre/PSK). Visit the place on the alloted date with the documents specified in the above mentioned website and get the procedures done, which should ideally be over in an hour. And than all what you got to do is to relax and wait for the passport delivery.
Next question would obviously be, ‘Where all in Kochi do they run the PSKs?’ The following are the two closest locations of PSKs in Kochi:
1) Moosa Vaidyar Memorial Building, Aluva Perumbavoor Road, Aluva – 683101 (Near Casino Theatre)
2) Ground Floor, Heera Royale, Airport Seaport Road, Cochin Palace P.O, Karingachira – 682301
TheseÂ PSKs are getting ready to process 500 applications a day. This would bring down the time taken for delivery of ordinary and Tatkal passports drastically. The impressive, public-friendly PSKs,Â powered by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS),Â have their front-end office, manned by TCS staff, where collection of biometric data takes place while passport officials verify documents and collect fees.
These are two of the 13 PSKs allocated to the State as part of the Ministry of External Affairs’ â€˜Passport Seva Project’. The project is aimed at providing efficient and speedy service to passport applicants. Good job, Mr.Minister.
