He said a passport of Rs 554,000 and a police customs certificate were issued in 2019, Rs 293,000 in 2020 and Rs 442,000 in 2021.
Passport Office Hyderabad has been in operation since 1975. Currently, Telangana has four Passport Seva Kendra, one Passport Ragout Seva Kendra and 14 Post Office Passport Seva Kendra.
Balaiah said the passport office continued to provide their services during the blockade. “The emergency passport was issued by RPO Second La Bird. After the blockage was lifted in May 2021, the passport office made a 50% reservation in June 2021 and then a 75% reservation in August 2021. As the demand for passports increased, 100% reservations were canceled from September 23, 2021. “
“All staff and visitors to the passport office followed the Covid protocol. After that, the waiting time for passport reservations is 7-8 business days at the passport service Kendras in Beganpet, Ameerpet, Trichowki and Karimnagar, in Nizamabad. It was shortened to two days, “says Balaia.
