Passport Seva Kendra to come up in Nellore

TIRUPATI: Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has resolved to step up its outreach programmes like conducting camps to reach out to more and more people seeking passport, to make the process of application and delivery of passport much easier and transparent, said Dnyaneshwar M Mulay, Secretary, Consulate, Passport Visa and Overseas Indian Affairs.

Speaking to the media at the Passport Seva Kendra, Tirupati, on Friday, Mulay said renewed efforts would be made to reach out to students by conducting special camps `students connect’ in colleges, universities and educational institutions to encourage them to obtain passport, as part of MEA new people’s centric approach, reports The Hans India.

Mulay who was here after participating in a special passport camp for scientists working in ISRO at Sriharikota earlier in the day, observed that passport was hitherto considered luxurious and confined to educated and elite but now it has become essential as an item of identity and also the one that opens up new vistas for education, employment, tourism, entertainment and many more.

A new Passport Seva Kendra will soon come up in Nellore, he said, adding that he would meet the Chief Ministers of the two Telugu speaking States in Hyderabad to explain the facilities being made by MEA for the safety of those going abroad for any purpose and how those staying abroad approach Indian Embassies for any help.
