Note from VJ Moderation: The below was split from a now-closed old thread: --- This was the first thread I came across when searching "PCC Bangalore". I just got my PCC from PSK Sai Arcade in Bangalore and wanted to share my experience. 1) Registered on the Passport Seva website as mentioned in the first post of this thread. Cost Rs. 500. I got my interview date for 2 days later. You don't really get to choose your date or time. You can reschedule your appointment twice. 2) As people have said in other threads, there is no point getting there too early. I got there at 11:26 for a 11:30 appointment. The guard let me in straightaway. I stood in a queue. It was pretty chaotic here (but not too bad by Indian standards). The paperwork I had to submit was the appointment sheet, my passport, additional proof of address (bank statement), proof of why I needed the PCC (I-797 and Packet 3-4. Technically, I haven't received my NOA2 but I got the Packet off the internet) and a letter from me to the passport office requesting for the PCC (I didn't have this but for Rs.2, you can get one from the guy at the xerox machine). I waited in line for 20mins and then once I gave them all this, they put the papers in a folder. 3) Then I was allowed inside with a queue number. This is where is all happens. There are chairs to sit and toilets. You have to go to Counter A, B and C. My queue number for Counter A came up in 5 minutes. This is a biometrics counter. So, they take a photo, fingerprints, confirm your paperwork etc. You can pay Rs45 for sms updates here too. 4) Then you go back and wait. I think most people wait for 90 mins. I had to wait for 2 hours, as I think they took 30mins off for lunch as the queue didn't move at all for 30 mins. 5) Finally, my queue number came on the screen. I went to Counter B. Since my current address is the same as my address in my passport, all the guy did was confirm that. Took 10 seconds. 6) I had gauged the time from Counter B to C during my 2 hours long wait. 5-15 mins. I got called to Counter C in 5mins. I got my PCC (2 copies). 7) Fill in the feedback form and get out. Took 3 hours in total. Pack some food. Ideally try to get an early morning appointment time to avoid the lunch slowdown. If the address on your passport is not your current residential address, you'll have to go to the police station and have the police physically verify your residence (but I already had that done when I got my passport and my residence is the same).
