www.passportindia.gov.in. Online Passport Application - No appointment at all - very murky system of working

Sir,
I applied for passport on www.passportindia.gov.in about one month back. But till date I have not been able to get appointment, though I try many times a day for Ludhiana Passport Sewa Kender. However, if apply through agents, they arrange appointment in one or two days - by charging Rs 4000- per appointment.
If online passport application was started to improve service, then why following things are not disclosed on website:
1. Number of appointments available each day. (Take the case of rail ticket reservation through IRCTC, all the available seats for next three months are clearly mentioned on website). Why secrecy about number of appointments is being maintained at www.passportindia.gov.in.
2. Appointments are released every day at 8.00 am. However, there is no clock on website and there is no way one can estimate the time set for website. Here again I will quote the example of IRCTC, where time of website is displayed on the Home page.
3. Why time of release of appointments is not clearly mentioned on the website. (again for railway ticket reservation on IRCTC website - it is clearly mentioned that booking of tatkal tickets start at 8.00 am sharp). But everything useful for customers is kept secret.

It appears that some vested interests are involved- as everything is being deliberately kept murky.

As TCS are maintaining this website, they should learn transparency from IRCTC website.

With regards
D R Sharma

I, Mani Kamal thapa, a resident of ramgaon, jaigaon, dist. jalpaiguri, had applied for a fresh tatkal passport from psk kolkata but i was denied the issue of passport for one minor reason. In stead of private service, i was too honest to disclose in the annexure 'f' issued by the Additional District Magistrate, Alipurduar, that i'm a teacher in st. anthony's convent school, which from the name is very obvious that it not a govt. school. So the psk kolkata refused to grant me a passport and at counter 'c' of the psk i was asked to produce any proof of employment in the school, which i didnt have at that time. So i came back to jaigaon to get the employment certificate. On my second visit to the psk at counter 'b', i submitted the employment certificate but i was asked again to get a new annexure 'f'. I approached the Additional District Magistrate, Alipurduar, but the employees asked me for the previous annexure 'f' issued from the office of A.D.M., Alipurduar, if i wanted a new annexure 'f'. I'm a post graduate and till now the govt. of india has failed to provide any kind of employment opportunities and now when i'm given a chance to serve in a foreign company(Apparel Group, UAE) i'm denied the pass to go to dubai. Don't i have a right to have a better life? Does the Govt. have any kind of objection to this? I was supposed to submit the passport to process the visa by the first week of April, but still...

I, mani kamal thapa, a resident of Ramgaon, Jaigaon, Dist. Jalpaiguri, had applied for a fresh tatkal passport from Passport Seva Kendra, Kolkata. In the annexure 'f' i was too honest to disclose that i'm working as a teacher in st. anthony's convent school, jaigaon, which from the name is very obvious is a private school run by salesian sisters. In my online application i had mentioned unemployed because i'm not a govt. servant and moreover i'm presently employed in the above mentioned school on a contract basis. On my first visit they asked me to produce the proof of employment in the above mentioned school and i didnt have it at that moment so the officers at counter 'c' refused to grant me the passport and my file numbered CA2F1211300816 was kept on hold. I visited the psk kolkata again and this time my application was again rejected at counter 'b' though i produced the proof of employment. I was then asked to get a new annexure 'f'. I went to the Additional District Magistrate's Office at Alipurduar again to ask for a new annexure 'f' but they asked me for the previous annexure 'f' issued by them and they said only if i bring back the original annexure 'f', which is now at psk kolkata, they would give me the new annexure 'f'. Now you please tell me what should i do? I am a post graduate and till now the govt. hasn't provided me with any kind of employment. Now when a foreign company(Apparel Group, UAE) is showing some mercy on me, our govt. is refusing me the pass to go abroad to work.

Sir,
Is birth certificate needed as one of the compulsory document to submit with that of passport application? I had to make an affidavit over the birth certificate so as to sit for my secondary examination as the required age of sitting for that exam was a little greater than of mine. Now I got to know that affidavit is is invalid now-a-days. Please tell me what I should do regarding this?

Respected Sir/Madam,
I ALEX RUBIN had applied for passport on 13/7/2012 in S.P office passport department, Bellary, Karnataka, and my file no. is BN03Z1006941612. While police verification i came to know that my name and my mother's name is incorrect. So i kindly request u to do the correction with respect to the birth certificate or 10th marks card.
My name in police verification form is ALEX ROBIN should be changed to ALEX RUBIN.
My mother's name in verification form is CHELINA should be changed to CELINA.


Thanks and regards,
Alex Rubin
