Hi guys! So today I went to the PSK and everything went well until I actually went to the exit counter. At the B counter, the government official took my old passport and Aadhar card and since there was no change in address, he stamped “cancelled” on my passport, although he did asked me about my previous stay in Europe since we have to mention all addresses for the past one year. He told me to go to the exit counter.

What’s surprising is that after I got out, I was baffled to see my acknowledgement letter. It said the follow:

Application status: On Hold

There was a star beneath and it’s written “Subject to police verification” on the police verification mode, it’s written N/A. I’m not really sure what’s going on and I’m beyond anxious. Why is my case put on hold when I submitted everything? Has anyone else has experienced this before? What should be the next steps? I tried to call RPO but their phones are always busy and no one picks up. I used to think that there is no police verification/post verification for reissue applicants but it’s surprising that my entire file is put on hold.

Does anyone know what should I do?

Relax, the Police verification will be done, that is all. This is a usual procedure so no need to worry.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

You need not panic nor worry. Jitujee has rightly said, Police Verification is a normal process. And it is triggered depending upon various factors. You will have to go through the process.

I understand but on my police verification mode, it says "NA" and I don't understand why it says "On-Hold", shouldn't it say something like "sent to the passport office for further processing"?

Some applicants had "Granted" message on their passports. Not quite sure what to do.

"Granted" means the passport has been granted with either no PV or post-PV basis. "On Hold" means the passport will be issued once everything is clear.

So, please hold back until the process is over.

It could mean, unlikely though, that your documents will be checked and no police verification will be done. It could mean that the passport is on hold till police verification is done as NA is a default status. Either ways, it will be visible in your status soon.

The bottom-line is do not worry about government procedure, you will not get a clear answer from officials too, so give your application some time to process. If you are eligible, no one can stop you from getting a passport, that is your fundamental right. If you still want to be 'beyond anxious', I doubt anyone can help.

Do you want your passport or do you want to change the system

I guess I can only wait, no other option left. And no, I don't want to change the system at all. I just want to get my passport so I can immigrate from the country (and the system itself) :P. I was only telling you the standard message applicants receive when their files are not hold. Either way, I'll update this forum as I get updates from my passport so at least others can look at it if they need help.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

When I was on a train in India, I got chatting to the editor of a newspaper, a senior person in society, and even they were asked for "extra cash money" from the police officer who was doing their passport police report check.

Maybe Prakaant's post is "tongue in cheek" ?

Ed.

Ed, was discussing about passport issuing system, and not police system.

Unfortunately a lot of things in India are only "user-friendly" on paper. But then again, I haven't dealt with PSK processing before so I cannot comment whether it's good or bad. I hope you're right though and that it is indeed user-friendly and I do get my passport without any unnecessary delays.

As per my personal experience I would like to disagree with you.

Ed, the practice of constables asking for chai pani when they come for verification is a well known practice.

An ex-colleague of mine refused to give chai pani and was asked to come after a few days. She then lodged a complaint with the ACB (anti corruption bureau) who contacted her and gave her pre marked notes to be handed over to the constable on a pre determined day and time. However the constable did not turn up and a couple of days later her passport arrived by post. The constable might have been tipped about the trap.

Sure you can fend them off once but the entire system concerning the police is corrupt. If you complain against them, then they do possess the power to utterly destroy your life. So maybe you or your friend got lucky with the ACB but I know several people who tried to stand up against the corruption in police but had to pay a very hefty price.

Once again I am sorry as I disagree with your statement. I have had encounters (not the ones that are happening in UP) with cops who were courteous and well behaved.

Isn't that the case in any department / office?
