The National Capital Region (NCR) will have four swanky state-of-the-art Passport Seva Kendras (PSKs) by March which will help in reduce the hardships faced in filing applications for the document.

Two PSKs will be located in Delhi, including one in east Delhi, besides two in Ghaziabad and Gurgaon. These facilities are likely to be set up before the end of this fiscal, a senior official said.

The three PSKs, developed by the Ministry of External Affairs with the help of Tata Consultancy Services, are part of proposed 77 such facilities to be set up across the country. The pilot project was inaugurated in Bangalore by External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Friday.

“The effort is to deliver passport services in a timely, more accessible and reliable manner and in a comfortable environment through a streamlined process,” the official said.

The centres will collect applications for seven hours as against the present four hours.
