Passport centre for Kannur soon

Special Correspondent

District to get ‘Seva Kendra’ too

KANNUR: Minister of State for External Affairs E. Ahamed has said that the proposal for setting up a passport collection centre here is under serious consideration.

He told reporters here on Sunday that a passport collection centre for both Kannur and Kasaragod districts was in the pipeline.

The district administration had been directed to identify suitable office premises for establishing the centre, he said adding that officials visiting the Regional Passport Office would examine the premises once it was identified.

On passport office

To a question on the proposal for setting up a Regional Passport Office in Kannur, Mr. Ahamed said that a certain number of passport applications from a region was the prerequisite for starting an office in that region.

He, however, said that Kannur was among the 68 centres identified for establishing Passport Seva Kendras where applicants would be able to submit their applications without hassles.

Police verification

Mr. Ahamed also said that he had brought to the notice of Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan the delay in completing police verification of passport applications.

The delay was said to be owing to the verification work being entrusted with the local police.

He said that Mr. Balakrishnan had assured him that he would look into the matter and take steps to expedite the verification procedure.
