Passport applicants need not undergo physical police verification anymore. Central Government has made police verification not compulsory. The procedure of obtaining a passport is getting minimized and easier. Recently Govt also declared that there is no need for the submission of the birth certificate as a proof of a passport. In spite of birth certificate, Aadhaar card/ PAN card or SSC marks memo can be submitted for further processing. Now the elimination of physical verification is also done. It has been announced that passport will be printed both in Hindi and English languages.

What was the actual procedure?

Till now the applicant uses to submit the details and proofs like residential proofs, identity proof proofs in the passport issue office. After document verification, police will visit the resident address provided in the personal details. They will verify the details and check the person’s good behavior by consulting neighbor and then go for further processing. Not reducing the stress this part of verification is being abolished.

What is the procedure for passport verification?

Technology is taking over the human being, who has ultimately created it. Now physical verification will not take place. In spite of that, all the required data of the applicant will be uploaded online.

A centralized database of anti-social elements and criminals would be created, covering pan-India. When a particular person’s police records are required to be verified, this centralized database would be used.

A new system called Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems Project (CCTNS) is attached to passport services of the Ministry of External Affairs. So the verification will take place through this.

Speaking of the changes, Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi said, “The police portal will provide the citizen facility for online complaint registration and request for antecedent verification. The CCTNS project will help in realizing the Prime Minister’s dream of ‘minimum government, maximum governance.’”

Security issues:

If there is any issue with the person’s identity police may visit their resident and go for verification. They will be carrying the hand held device which consists of all the criminal records stored in it.

The name and identity of the applicant will be run on the database stored in Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems Project (CCTNS) and check the records for any match. In this way, the person’s police record will be identified.

Already the physical verification process was eliminated in certain states, and Pune became the first city to abolish physical verification. The CCTNS has approved in 2009 itself but came into existence after Home Minister Rajnath Singh launched the Digital Police portal.

One the minister from home ministry said: “This will allow police to access court and prison records, aiding the investigation.”

Rajiv Mehrishi, Union Home Secretary, further said, “Police in some states like Telangana is already using CCTNS for passport credentials. They will be given handheld devices to go to an applicant’s address and upload his or her details on to the network. It will minimise contact with police and reduce time.”
