My wife (ANVI DESHPANDE) had applied for passport from Nagpur office in 2009 August. We had applied from Nagpur since her name was on ration card taken from Amravati (Under Nagpur jurisdiction), howevr we stay in Pune. I know this was a blunder. We had police inquiry in October 2009, after which the report was given to passport office in Nagpur that my wife does not stay in Amravati. Almost 5 months later, we got to know from Passport office that they had returned application to Amravati Commissinar office for reverification. 2nd inquiry was also conducted on April 18th. This time also same report went to passport office stating that my wife does not stay there. The passport application status is shows on site http://passportstatus.nic.in/passmain.php?city=ngp as "Application has been transferred to policy section, Please See the PRO". I doubt if this will be rejected.
Agreed that this was misate, we would like to correct it. Can anyone help us to know what can be done in such case? Can we withdraw application from Nagpur and apply in Pune? If yes, what care should be taken for it? Will there be any penalties we need to pay for withdrawing the application and what is the procedure for it?
Is there any way by which we can request passport office to transfer the case to other city. e.g from Nagpur to Pune RPO? If yes, what kind of application to be made? Do we have any standard format of the application?
If transfer is not possible, can we withdraw the passport application?
i would suggest that you put an RTI application to find out the satus of your application and ask for copy of the Rules when the application is to be transfered form one office to another. This would give you a clear picture and what to do.
