Passport is an important document that acts as an identity proof and is mandatory when one needs to fly outside of the country. When a user needs to apply for a new passport, they need to head to a Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) or Post Office Passport Seva Kendra (POPSK) that are available in every major city across India. Citizens of the country can go to these offices for re-issue of passport, issuance of new passport, or any other passport-related query.
