Not only did the work of simplifying Passport rules and procedures has been achieved but passport services have also been taken closer to the doorsteps of the citizens. In recent years, considerable improvement both in terms of procedure and timelines have been implemented, which has enabled faster delivery of passport services to applicants in India and abroad.
