Soon you can quickly fill passport application and apply for it via your smartphones and the updated application will be launching within time frame of 1-2 months. There won’t be a new app but an additional features will be added to already available MEAIndia app.
The already available app by Ministry of External Affairs, Govt. of India called – MEAIndia available for Apple iOS and Android devices and at present, the app lets users look up general information, track their nearest passport center and police station, compute the required amount to be paid and track the status of the application.
We have reported in July that MEAIndia app will allow people in India to apply for passport through this app and that’s too absolutely free. Today Ministry of External affairs and TCS confirmed it in making, developed by TCS which is ace software consultancy firm of India, the app will launch within one and half month as reported.
However as per procedure users still have to go to nearest Passport Seva Kendra along with the hard copies of the required documents after the ARN number is generated and an appointment is fixed.
Once the app is launched efficiency of app is still to be checked as most of the time the Gov. of India released an app the features used to be brilliant however there always been technical issues with them.
