Passport Seva Kendras in Madurai and Tirunelveli to function by July 2011
Passport Seva Kendras in Madurai and Tirunelveli would be started next month, said Jose K. Mathew, Regional Passport Officer-Madurai.
These two Passport Seva Kendras were among 77 being established across the country.
Mr. Mathew said that the passport office functioning near the Lotus Tank on Bharati Ula Road in K. Pudur would continue to function as a back office. People could submit their applications at the Kendras in Madurai and Tirunelveli once they started functioning; the date of inauguration would be known after getting the audit compliance reports. Everything else like fees remains the same.
The Madurai Region comprises Madurai, Theni, Dindigul, Ramanathapuram, Sivaganga, Virudhunagar, Tirunelveli, Tuticorin and Kanyakumari districts.
The Tirunelveli Passport Seva Kendra will serve residents of districts in the other deep southern parts of Tamil Nadu.
