Minister of State in PMO, Dr Jitendra Singh today inaugurated a passport seva kendra (POPSK) at head post office, Kathua.

Speaking on the occasion, the union minister said the opening of this kendra would help in pacing up the process of issuance of passports and their delivery. 

The facility, he said, would bring the service closer to people’s doorsteps, benefitting more than 12 lakh citizens living in Kathua and its two adjacent districts, besides reducing the waiting time for the applicants by considerable measure, he added.

Singh, according to an official statement, complimented the people of Kathua for getting the facility and hoped that it would cut the delays caused in the delivery of passports and process applications from far flung areas.

He asked the Passport office authorities to prioritize issuance of passports for students, pilgrims, infirm and other deserving people by speeding up the processes as the objective of opening these POPSK is to extend passport services on a larger scale and ensure wider area coverage.
