A passport is an important document required when a person travels to another country for various reasons such as tourism, education, medical or other purposes. There has been growth in the demand for passports in the country as globalisation further stretches arms, along with an expanding economy. The Passport Seva Project was initiated in May 2010 under the Ministry of External Affairs Ministry and has increased its services in circulating this essential document to as many citizens of the country as possible, and that too, with the least amount of hassle. If you plan to apply for a passport, the Passport Seva Portal is the platform you need to interact with.
