External Affairs Minister👤 Sushma Swaraj has announced📢 the Govt's decision to liberalise the passport📖 system👍, dispensing off the police👮 verification process for issuance of passport for first time, normal category applications👏. The minister clarified that copies of AADHAR, Voter ID and PAN Card💳 with an affidavit📋 of no criminal case is enough for the issuance of passport📖. The Police👮 Verification(PV) will be conducted only after the issuance of the passport, which has been streamlined with the launch of “mPassport Police App”📱 to facilitate speedy submission of PV report digitally💻.
What are you waiting for ? Go get your passports.
