Hi,
I renewed my passport in Delhi in Sep 2016 and the same was delivered to me within 5 days of applying. Post this Local Police asked for the required documents which I submitted for verification.

I then moved to Bangalore( Sep 2016 ) and then to Pune (since May 2017 ) . And I just came to know that there is Show Cause Notice ( SCN ) issued in Apr 2017 at Delhi address.
I called up Passport toll free no. & I was suggested to visit Delhi RPO . I took a flight and met Delhi RPO who suggested me to request for Passport reissue again at the new address in Pune as I no more stay in Delhi.
I even asked Delhi RPO IF THEY NEED TO UPDATE THE COMMENTS OR CLOSE THE FILE NO.But they told me to just go ahead and proceed with the reissue address change procedure so that the police verification will be don ein new city i.e. Pune.

I called up Pune RPO and explained my situation . And asked them if I should apply for reissue of passport . They are saying that I need to meet up Delhi RPO again to close the file.

It's a conflicting information from both the RPOs.
What should be the nest step as I based in Pune and cannot travel to and froth to different cities.

No, it is not a conflicting information. You will have to clear first SCN and deposit fine, if any. Once it is clear, you will have to apply for reissue of passport.

You will have to visit Delhi Passport Office for sorting out the issues as SCN has been issued by them.

Then you will have to apply for reissue of passport at Pune PSK

Thanks Prakaant for your reply.

But I already visited Delhi RPO on 26/12 /2017 post taking appointment online.
I even asked them if they need to update anything from their end on my File. But he said there is nothing that is required to be updated.
And informed me to proceed with Address change process for passport reissue at new place and the police verification will be carried out at new place.

Have you submitted reply of SCN?

If a SCN letter is issued, and if you do not submit reply, the file will remain open and it may cause problem anytime.

I have not received letter as I don't stay there anymore. And, SCN was issued months after the passport was already issued.
Passport Cutomer care said SCN is issued and even the Delhi RPO personnel informed me.
And, he told me to proceed with the address change.

Now, I have trusted Delhi RPO words and I came back to Pune. Shall I apply for resissue with address change and visit Pune RPO.
Is there no provision that I surrender my current Delhi passport here and apply for a new one by paying penalty if any alongwith.

Passport Customer Care Service has been outsourced. And they provide routine answers.

There is no need to surrender your passport. Simply apply for reissue of passport for change of address. If there is any pending issue, they will inform you to get it clarified.
