Obtaining a police certificate Mumbai India

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee went to get her police certificate and was told they couldnt issue her one because she lived in a rented flat (apartment). Surely this cannot be true, even in America many people do not own a house. Has anyone else heard of this?

I would ask in the regional forum:

Hi

That is rubbish. I lived in Mumbai with my husband until recently, as expats. We applied at what was our local police station (Colaba). It took ages to do and in the end we had a friend in Mumbai chase it for us. No one said anything about rented apartments. Hope that helps.

Rubbish (as pointed out before). The cops need some money. Call the local constable to the side and ask him (usually a him) what it will take to get it done. Otherwise, you can also go to a travel agent and these agents usually have connections to get these clearances done.

Good luck,

KP

Although I am not familiar with the process in India, I would bet that this is BS. We have a similar thing going on here in China. Either the police are too lazy to do it, or they are hinting at a "fee".

In China we need an employer letter in order to get the police report. We are having a hard time getting the employer letter because many businesses skirt tax laws (or other laws) and are afraid of being exposed, so they refuse to get involved. Or, they are just too lazy to do it and want some money in exchange. :whistle:

As kpathak says, sometimes there are agencies that need clearance quickly (like travel and visa agencies). For a fee, they might be willing to use their connections to help you.
