"Passport Conundrum"
While MEA's decision to organise 250 passport Seva kendras across the country in 2015, is commendable, the malady of cash-for-passport continues. The passport applicants are made to run from pillar to post between passport offices and police stations . The touts roam outside RPOs and Seva Kendras in search of hapless victims, promising to get the job done on payment of huge " facilitation charges". They have free access to officials. Will the MEA please take the call ?

Comments

The quantum of payment made to a public servant is liable be made public. However, in case of a LTC travel, the place visited and the details of the family members are exempt from disclosure by virtue of being personal information.
