Passport office set to become reality today

Aurangabad: The ministry of external affairs (MEA), along with the department of posts, will open the Post Office Passport Seva Kendra (POPSK) at Aurangabad on Tuesday.City-based engineering graduate, Shardul Pathak, still remembers the time when he had to run from pillar to post while applying for a passport. The document was a mandatory joining requirement for his new job at Bengaluru."I was literally at my wit's end trying to get the passport as I had little time in hand. I was eventually forced to take help from a private agent, who charged me exorbitantly as he knew it was urgent. 
Even though the process was online, I had to take multiple trips to Pune to fulfil all the application requirements," he recalls.Like Shardul, a number of applicants from the region were inconvenienced by the absence of a passport issuing facility in the city. Now, as the city is finally getting its Passport Seva Kendra after a long wait, the youngster thanks the central authorities on behalf of the scores of applicants who had to go through the tedious process.Pranav Kumar, postmaster general for the Aurangabad circle, said special arrangements have been made at the regional office located at Chhavani to set up the POPSK as per the MEA requirements."Three postal department staffers will be appointed at the POPSK, along with supervising MEA officials. The passport application will have to be done online, while document verification will be done at the local level as per allotted time slots.
