If its India.... Then its approximately 25-30 days if you've applied the normal way, 7-10 days if you took the tatkaal method.

Apply as soon as you can and make no mistakes in the application. Give an address where somebody will be there should a policeman show up to conduct an inquiry. Let everyone know to expect such a visit and, if you are not there, not say they don't know you. That's all you can do. Then it will take whatever time it takes.

What about the police visit? Is it a sort of check?

I am not sure if they do it everywhere. Basically, the passport office asks your local police station if you are an ok person, and not some criminal with flight risk. Then it is up to the officer in charge there. Sometimes they see they have no bad record on you and just sign the paper. Sometimes a cop would show up to "investigate", which is usually a friendly chat with expectation of some "bakshish".

Also, the police is supposed to verify that you actually live at the address you supplied.

Why don't you google up for the Info you are looking for?Try Passport office+ bangalore' in google. It generally takes a month. I got my passport after 4 months when i applied in 2006. If you check thier website, there is info on how you can get the passport within 10 days ,provided you meet the specified regulations.That sort of an application is called Tatkaal.

Rule no one for any forum thread. Never pose your questions in someone elses thread. Mostly no one will notice it. Do a search if the question is answered, if not post a new thread. That way it remains neat and valuable to all in Universe.

I think it means you just add your signature to the copy.

Dr... I saw it!

Rule two: Check someone's post count before advising them on how to use the forum!

Mind you... Not a bad point!

Dr and Nick thanks. Actually last night Captain Mahajan was online and I PMed him and go my answers. And a Nick said, it just means sign yourself (I have signed at the bottom of the page) away from the text.
