Ya ok.. Ill get from Passport ofc

Procedure for applying PCC - (My personal experience)

  • Log into site http://www.passportindia.gov.in
  • Register through the Passport Seva Portal. (Click on "Register" link under the Online Application Filling section on the Home Page).
  • Login to the Passport Seva Portal with the User ID created as above
  • Click "Apply for Police Clearance Certificate" link.
  • Fill in the required details in the form and submit.
  • Choose Alternative 1
  • After filling in all the details, VALIDATE & SAVE it on your DESKTOP (its easier to upload later on)
  • Go to Alternative 1 again & select "Click here to upload the form" & upload the file you have saved on your desktop
  • Then go to Applicant Home page. Select "View Saved/Submitted Applications"
  • Select the saved application & take a printout of Application Receipt

Now with this printout you just have to walk into your nearest Passport office or Passport Seva Kendra during 9am to 11am ONLY. Take the token number & just follow the instructions. I was amazed to see the smooth process without any confusion at the Passport Seva Kendra. My nearest point was Hubli, Karnataka.

Documents you need to carry is just a photocopy of your passport with your signature & your original Passport. The fee is Rs. 500 & has to be paid at the passport office only. Just walk in with this preparation, rest they will take care of. I had taken a copy of my NOA2 letter, but they didn't even bother to see that. I hope it helps.

Hi So my question from this forum members is regarding K1visa pcc. Ive all my national ids, certificates, official documents on my permanent address(staying since 1995). But Ive stayed outside my home state from June 2006 to Dec 2012 in 2 different states within India for work prospects. So do I need to get pcc for the local passport office(from where my passport is issued)or from all the states that Ive lived in since 16yrs of age? I'mnow staying at my permanent address since Dec 2012. My K 1 visa interview date will most probably be in Mar or Apr depending on the processing time.
