    Dear Sir,I have visited PassportSevaKendra on 16-03-2015. But Verification Officer not accepted my application & gave me next appointment date on the ACKNOWLEDGEMENT LETTER.i.e on 11-04-2015. But I want to cancel the appointment as I need 3 months time for getting document. But I am not getting “SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT”highlighted though I tried a number of times.

    Hi
    I have applied for passport in tatkal on 25th feb and got the next day appointment. Due to the lack of pcc i rescheduled it on the same date on 25th but there was no change in date but timing was changed. So I called in the psk and they told me to reschedule it next day so I did the same. and got 27th as my appointment date. I visited the psk with my documents but something was missing so they told me to take another appointment date. Is it possible now?

    I am applying for a passport reissue. I have saved my application and need to now pay and book an appointment. However, only one appointment date is showing which is April 7. I’d like to book an appt. for the week of April 17 -20.

    Why is only one appt. date showing? Does the system not give the option of selecting a specific date?
    Should I just book the appt. date given and then reschedule for a date that is more convenient for me?
    I don’t understand why I am cannot choose from a selection of dates and am wondering if I am doing something wrong.

    Please advise.

      Hi Kalyan,

      I think appointment dates for future dates are book, not sure. Can you please call the passport customer number and ask them to reschedule your appointment to a later date?

    I had scheduled appointment 2 times till now but my application was rejected due to short of document. What if I miss the 3 chance also due to document as the officer always says for a new document.

    Please help

      Hi Akshay,

      What document that officer is asking every time? Why don’t you sit and check out the required document list properly before visiting next time. Make sure that you have followed all the steps mentioned as per Passport India rules, so that next time if someone ask you for a new document you can defend your self by referring that resource.

      Hi Raghavendra,

      I don’t know why that reschedule appointment option is not coming in your case. Generally it should come with cancel option. I think the best think you can do now is call the passport India toll free number 1800-258-1800. Regarding passport data I think it will be there for at least one year as they will provide you 2 chance max to re-schedule your passport appointment.

      I hope you will get your query resolved soon and also share your experience here if anything. :)

      • Vishal says

        I have same situation as Raghavendra. The passport application got rejected and I got another date (11th March). Now I want to reschedule because some trip has already been planned in office.
        For me, after I click the “View Submitted …”, the “Pay and Schedule Appointment” link is disabled. I called their toll number but, the IVR just drops as soon as I select the option for “other services”.
        Santanu, Raghavendra, if you find a solution, please let me know. Thanks Santanu for posting this information.

          Hi Vishal,

          This is very sad to hear that you did not et any help from toll free number. Due to this attitude of Passport department people are suffering. I don’t have much idea about your situation, but I think you should keep trying or if possible visit your nearest PSK and explain your situation if possible.

          Let me know if you found any solution to come out of this problem.
