    All the Time frames given are wrong, I have submitted my Application on the 6th February 2012, I have not yet received my pssport until now its been more than a month. The problem is only at thane passport office all the other passport offices around the country are really issuing the passports on the said dates. Maybe they sould update the thane passport office site according to their actual time frames. Tatkaal services more than two months and normal more than six months.

    I applied for Passport on 29/02/2012 with Thane Office who got despatched my Passport right on 12th April,2012. I am very much thankful to the Thane Passport officials for their promptness in issuing me the passport.

    However, both of my daughter and son applied on 1st March’12 & 5th March’12 respectively. However, on enquiry on website as on 14th May,12, it is displayed that the ‘Police report is clear and the Passport is expected to be despatched on 18th April 2012′ of course, subject to documents being in order.

    I would request the officials to kindly ensure expeditous despatch as has been done in my case earlier.
    Regards
