My in-laws Family Needed PCC for... My Father-in-law, Mother-in-law & 2 brother-in-laws...!!!
They were immigrating 2 US on F-4 (Brothers/Sisters of US citizen) category...!!!
They needed PCC along with other documents to be submitted with DS-230.
They obtained PCC from Local & District Police stations...without any fuss...!!!
Thn, They went to Ahmedabad Regional Passport Office... they denied PCC w/o letter from NVC..!!
After submitting Form DS-230 (Previously known as DSL form), NVC sent letter mentioning PCC missing for all 4 applicants..!!! (Mentioning All 4 applicants Name on Separate Pages about missing PCC & Submit them, so they can process w/o any delay)
They went 2 Ahmedabad RPO again, showed NVC letter, then they issued PCC only for Principal Beneficiary (My Father-in-law) & denied other 3 (derivative applicants) & ask for Bar Code Sheet mentioning EACH Applicant Name...!!
But, NVC issued Bar-Code sheet for Principal benefiiary only... showing BMB visa case number...!!
They submitted only 1 PCC from RPO & all 4 PCC from Local Police Station...!!!
Also, submitted letter explaining situation experienced @ahmedabad RPO...!!!
Finally, NVC sent Application to Mumbai Consulate & issued Visa Call (Visa Interview) letter...!!!
NVC also, sent letter about docments needed @interview... stating that PCC will require for other 3 too..!!!
They went again to Ahmedabad RPO... & showed Visa Call Letter & Finally Got PCC after few days..!!!
So, just for PCC from Passport Office - Ahmedabad, if any one has to go 3-4 times... & wasting about a month... How come any one expect any good customer service from them...???
Also, There is NO information on Web-site "http://passport.guj.nic.in" that what should we have 2 do 2 get PCC other than just Application Form (Form#2)...!! If we go 2 Passport Office & if any document missing, then we have 2 go 2 again.. & Mind it Ahmedabad RPO is the only 1 for the region like Kutch, Saurashtra, North Guj. Central Guj., East Guj. ...!!! so, to just get PCC, we have 2 spend like almost Rs. 2000 - 3000... (Form just cost Rs.300/-), if we are not from Local area..!!!
Is Everybody knew that, if...
(1) We need PCC from District Police HQ or not ???
(2) PCC from Local Police Station or not ??
(3) How Many Photos ???
(4) How Many Copies / Original of What Documents.. ???
(5) We need Residency Proof or not ?? & what kind of Proof ??
(6) If we need any Phone Bills / Electric Bills / other Proof ???
(7) If we need any Identification Proof (like Election Card) ???
(8) Need Old / Cancelled Passport or not ??
So, to get PCC from Ahmedabad RPO is like testing all your nerves...!!!
Good Luck for All who need to go Ahmedabad RPO..!!!
