[Resolved]  Lamoda — replacement of lost passport....

I Balwant Singh Garia, am an Indian national living and working, as a General Manager with a fashion house in Thailand for last 14-15 years.

On May 17, 2009, I had a misfortune of having my computer, air ticket, cash and passport stolen by taxi driver at the Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok. I was leaving for England on a business trip on that fateful day.

Having secured a valid police report and photocopies of my passport and other necessary documents, I approached the Indian Embassy for issuance of a new passport, in the last week of May 2009. My job requires frequent traveling to other countries like Europe & U.S.A to secure business for the company. Without a passport and unable to travel for business for the company, my well paying job is at stake.

Please also note that I am married and have a growing up daughter of 5 years. As the mother is not living in Thailand, I also have to take care of my daughter singly. My daughter is a Thai national.

I will not be allowed to reside in Thailand without a proper passport & visa and not be able to take care of my young daughter. My present visa to stay in Thailand expires soon.

It’s been nearly more than seven months since I made a request for issuance of a new passport but I am yet to receive a satisfactory reply from the officials. I even have been told that it could take months or years before a new passport could be made which I find very disturbing. I, being an Indian citizen feel quite disappointed and discouraged to find myself in this helpless situation in a foreign country.

I think the embassy officials are under a false impression that this is my third passport that has been lost where as the fact is that my two earlier passports were DAMAGED & NOT STOLEN OR LOST. The details of those passports are as under:

1. PP # Z1478868 was issued in Bangkok and was valid until 17/07/2012.

2. PP # F3936562 was issued at Bangkok and was valid till 16/5/2016.

Photocopies of both the cancelled passports are attached herewith.

I request you that this matter be regarded as urgent as my employment and my family is in grave situation.I have been pounding the embassy doors for the last 7 months helplessly. I’d appreciate your kind intervention in this regard and I hope to get my new passport at the earliest.

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely,

Balwant Singh Garia
