5 passport facilitation centres - Hubli gets one


As part of its ambitious project of revamping passport offices across the country, Bangalore will get two passport facilitation centres, while Gulbarga, Hubli, Mangalore will get one centre each, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna announced on Tuesday.

Speaking at a meet-the-press programme organised by the Press Club of Bangalore, the External Affairs Minister said the new offices would help in easing the present pressure on passport processing and clearance.

External Affairs Ministry officials said, each centre will have at least 20 counters to help people apply for passports with ease. Efforts would be made to make these centres functional by December 15, they said.
