Mar 20th 2015 at 1:00 AM

The on-line passport system is yet to end up being ONE HUNDRED percent digital, as local police stations still send out paper copies of applicants' records after verification to police station for more handling.

Now, police officials & federal government, which runs the online passport task, are pondering making some changes in the system as well as providing equipments like scanners to police headquarters to cut through time absorbed sending out and uploading hard copies.

Pune is the very first to host this experiment - around 4,500 applications are pending verifications at police stations throughout the city.

A meeting in this regard was held on Thursday at the cops commissioner's workplace, gone to by replacement commissioner of authorities (foreigners' registration workplace and special branch II) Sanjay Patil and Chandrakant Silveni. The issue has likewise been gone over with Pune local key officer Atul Gotsurve.

Pune city police take care of more than 15,000 passport documents of applications each month as well as have taken on the area station (DPH) version for rapid fingertip of authorities verification reports (PVR). In this design, passport applications received by the Key Seva Kendra (PSK) are transferred electronically to station of a candidate's city of home, then segregated and further moved via the on the internet path to police headquarters worried. After on-ground confirmation of applicant's supplied details is done, the PVR is sent back to the police station, then sent to the Regional Passport Office (RPO) for further handling. In Pune city, DCP (FRO) forwards the PVR to the RPO with his suggestion on whether or not to issue the key. As per schedule, this procedure needs to be finished within 21 days.

After on-ground verification, local cops fill candidates' information on the internet and also send hard copies of documents with applicants' as well as authorities assessors' signatures. Today, till we receive paper copies of records, we are uncertain as to which application has actually been validated by regional authorities. Local cops spend some time to send paper copies, leading to hold-up. We suggested that in the online system, there must be an alternative to check out specifics of applicants whose PVR has actually been finished by regional authorities, as likewise a dashboard to show cops station-wise specifics of finished PVRs. Authorities concerned have actually been filled in and they are confident that such modifications can be made in the system.".

At the police headquarters, officers believe that if devices are offered, it will make points much easier. "A proposition to supply advance scanners -each setting you back around Rs 8,500 - to every police headquarters, is pending. As soon as this device is available, every document will certainly be published at the police station itself. Candidates and the assessor in-charge of any type of police station can sign electronically. At present, we send out files to the cops commissioner's workplace, where they are checked and submitted on the internet site," a cops assessor saw Mirror.

"Pune RPO covers six districts - Pune, Satara, Sangli, Ahmednagar, Kolhapur as well as Solapur. The DPH version is currently practical in Pune and Satara. In the next two months, Kolhapur and Solapur will likewise adopt it. As far as changes in the system are concerned, they are being made for more efficiency," Gotsurve informed Mirror.
