There are four gateway counters at the basement of the Subham building located at Wallford Road Opposite to International Hospital at Guwahati.
Another 8 to 10 Verification Cabins at Counter A, four at B, and counter C makes the registration process faster than the previous line ups by the applicants.
Counter C is where an APO makes the final verification. In counter B and C you might be asked to submit any additional documents from the lists of documents cross checked at gateway counter. Staffs at Counter A’ sorts out documents for verification at Counter B and C. If the APO marks a Go’ at the application form you would be told to reach out for Exit counter where you would get an acknowledgement slip.
The file you submitted successfully will be given a file number and the Regional passport office will send you the passport through speed post at your residence. This is how one gets a passport done.
It’s about read between the lines where one spelling in a document has to be the same with the name at the other document. An abbreviated surname at one document and a fully spelled surname at the other will not do. If we have it written in our provisional certificates which could not be corrected easily we need to consult a lawyer and an affidavit for the same mistake is prepared and the affidavit is submitted along with our documents. This way it becomes valid.
One spends a lot of money travelling to Guwahati to get a passport done. Manipur has been expecting the passport office since long time back. The right approach could be a Tata Consultancy Centre. If the State is able to convince the consultancy to open up a branch many would benefit.
Our cultural troops, government officials, academicians, sports players, Muslim friends for Mecca trip, individuals thronged the Tata Consultancy centre at Guwahati daily. And they have been facing all sorts of troubles if a document is missing they have to fly back home and flew back to Guwahati to get their passport done. The regional office needs to open up branches in the North East.
Number of people applying for fresh passport or renewal from Manipur is increasing day by day.
Besides there are many runners for passport application and people usually take it as an easy step to get a passport done. But if we follow the guidelines properly a person can save a lot of money. Nowadays an applicant has to compulsorily go to the Tata Consultancy Centre at Guwahati to get their passport done. There are many Manipuris and non-locals who lure applicants to get their help and paid them. These people charges huge amount of money says Rs 3500 and above for a passport application in helping out with their documents like preparing a document asking for what is needed rather they act as a tourists guide to the fresh applicants. In fact we need lots of awareness on the application and documentation process of passport. A guideline centre ahead of launching of passport office in Manipur would be beneficial for the general public who wishes to get a passport.
