Come Thursday and passport seekers in Delhi can apply online.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has decided to introduce online registration of applications at Delhi's regional passport office on a trial basis.
Under the system, applicants having access to Internet facility can go to the website https://passport.Gov.in and select "online registration" to fill the form.
A printout will be given to the applicant showing the date and time to visit the RPO, Delhi for submitting the application along with requisite documents after filling up the online form.
Through online registration, the applicants will not have to take any token and can straightaway submit their forms on the date and time indicated in the printout.
The new system can be used for fresh passports, re-issue of passports and for getting new passport booklets in lieu of lost or damaged passports.
The existing system of registration at the Passport Office, District Passport Cells and Speed Posts Centres will continue.
