    Dear Sir,I have visited PassportSevaKendra on 27-01-2015. But Verification Officer not accepted my application & gave me next appointment date on the ACKNOWLEDGEMENT LETTER.i.e on 19-02-2015. 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. If I send a FAX message to PSK office,Can they cancel my appointment ?& I may be allowed to reschedule it in future within one year. IF cancelled, they will not delete the data captured (ARN number) from the computer system? PLEASE REPLY SOON. THANKING YOU,SIR

      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. :)
