Delay in police verification creating backlog, says RPO

Close to 30,000 passport applications are pending with the passport office for want of police clearance. Delay in police verification is a major factor leading to pendency in issue of passports, Regional Passport Officer (RPO) K. Srikar Reddy said here on Thursday.

Participating in an interactive meeting organised by Federation of Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FAPCCI), he said police units in Krishna, Karimnagar, and Anantapur districts and Cyberabad commissionerate were completing the verification process within the stipulated time of three weeks. “We hope the policemen in other districts would also complete the process in three weeks and enable us to issue passports at the earliest,” he said.

The RPO had a meeting with the Intelligence Department chief on the issue and the latter had asked all the Superintendents of Police to expedite the process. Following these instructions, more than 30,000 applications were cleared, but pendency still stood at 30,000 more applications, he added. Another reason for the delay in issue was furnishing of incomplete details in the applications. Proposals were also sent to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) to accept Aadhaar cards as identity and residence proof. “It is in final stages of approval,” he said. In case pages in a passport get exhausted, passport holders can apply for another passport by submitting proof of urgency and get the passport on the same day. They can also apply under Tatkal scheme to get the passport within three days.

The Ministry also approved setting up of PSKs at Karimnagar and Bhimavaram shortly.

Discrepancies in issue of Aadhaar cards

SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT,  Hyderabad,The Hindu, Oct 2, 2012

Enrolment and the cards generated are more than the population

Hyderabad seems to have achieved a dubious distinction as far as the all important Aadhaar cards are concerned.

Against the population of 40.10 lakh as per the 2011 census, the enrolment so far is 47.98 lakh. And if this surprises you, hold on – the actual number of cards generated are even higher – 49.93 lakh.

No explanation

Civil Supplies authorities do not have a plausible explanation for this strange phenomenon. They think Hyderabadis working in different parts of the country might have indicated their residential address as Hyderabad resulting in the enrolment and Aadhaar card generation figure exceeding the population.

However, they refuse to part with the district wise enrolment figures and instead give the combined enrolment figures for Hyderabad and the neighbouring Ranga Reddy district.

Accuracy of data

Some officials also suspect the accuracy of the census data since the number of people who came out for enrolment are far more.

As of now, 18 lakh persons in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts remain to be enrolled. Authorities hope to cover them by March 31. So far a total of 74.92 lakh Aadhaar cards have been generated and delivered out of the enrolled 85.45 lakh. The State capital and the adjoining Ranga Reddy district has combined population of 93.07 lakh.

The Civil Supplies Department is operating 29 centres with 61 kits in both the districts.

Aadhaar card registration centres are also being operated in Adilabad, Srikakulam, East Godavari and municipal areas of Kurnool, Mahabubnagar, Nalgonda, Nizamabad, Karimnagar, Khammam, Warangal and Medak.

Statistics show that 5.05 crore persons have been enrolled in the State out of the population of 8.47 crore.

Of this 4.62 crore cards were generated while 4.45 crore delivered through post offices.

One can check up the status of one’s Aadhaar card by logging on to the website uidai.gov.in and entering the 14 digit enrolment ID.
