The whole process has been made easier through the Digi Locker program.




Increase in the number of passport makers

According to the Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan, the Passport Seva Program is a major change in the expansion of passport services in the country. This will give great convenience to passport makers. According to the Foreign Ministry, the number of passport makers has increased in the last 6 years.
