All the other websites get their search information from Passport Seva Kendra. Using the agency’s website is a faster and more efficient way to obtain such information. The site is user friendly and so it shouldn’t be hard to find your way around. Basically, this is how to go about the passport status check procedure:
- Click http://passportindia.gov.in/AppOnlineProject/welcomeLink to get to the PSK home page. On the top left corner, identify and click the icon titled “track application status”. You do not need to register to the site to use this feature; however, it we recommend that you do so in order to access more services.
2.When you click on the icon, below is the next page that you should see:
On the “select application type” drop list, choose Passport/PCC/ICC unless otherwise you are looking for a specific category. Use the calendar application in the “Date of birth” section to enter date in the appropriate format, then click “track status”. If you get an error message, it means that either the website or your connection is down, or that you have entered wrong information, or there was an error in the application process. If you believe the latter is the reason for the error, contact PSK on 1800-258-1800.Sponsored Links
