Passport to Government Employees-Guidelines Revised

The Government has reviewed the procedure, for issuing passport to government employees. It has been done with a view to avoid the difficulties and complications that may follow. The introduction of ‘Prior Intimation’ letter has made this process very simple. The Government employees applying for passport can give ‘Prior Intimation’ letter to the Controlling/ Administrative Authority under which he or she is working. It should be submitted in the format of ‘Annexure H (Earlier Annexure N)’. A copy of the same counter signed by the employer showing his approval should also be sent to the Passport Office along with their application. If any objections are there in issuing passport to the employee, the Controlling/ Administrative Authority may intimate it to the Passport Office. But the Passport Issuing Authority has the right to take the final decision. It should also be noted that, as per this procedure, passport will be issued only on pre-police verification basis.
