Reiterating his commitment to providing best of the passport related services, Mr. Yashpal said that no stone would be left unturned to assist visitors seeking these services as a slew of measures have already been undertaken by the Jalandhar office. The applicants can check and book their passport and PCC appointment directly at www.passportindia.gov.in after applying and making payments online, he said, adding that people need not to consult any middleman for these services as the passport office has not authorized any such institution or middleman. He advised people to stay away from such persons making false commitments with respect to passport related services, instead they should directly avail the services through official portal.
