Guys its early frustrating to get a simple piece of document, even after 2 months process is not moving ahead -

Application sent to BLS Brampton - 16-June
Received at BLS - 17-June
Sent to Consulate - 10-July
Processing at Consulate - 13-July
Submitted to Passport Seva Kendra - 18-July
Poilce verification initiated -23 July

my brother has been continuously following up with local police station from 23rd July and they confirm every time its done from their side. Yet the status is still showing 'PCC application is under review at Passport Seva Kendra.' on the portal.

Its really frustrating, I have to submit my ITA application by 10th September and have lost all hope of getting the PCC.

Does anyone have any idea what can be done is this scenario to get the Police verification completed. Would really appreciate any guidance here.
In which location is your PCC pending?

Hi,

Me and my husband got married in Canada, but there is no official registration in India for our marriage. So how can we go about completing our PCC from India? Do we have to send PCC to our own separate addresses? and how about Married or single question? what should I write because in India we do not have any official document for our marriage?
Please assist, I am totally lost.

Would really appreciate any type of help.
Thank you
You dont need to give any Marriage certificate or proof of marriage for PCC. You both can give two separate addresses, but just make sure the address you give someone is available to followup with local police authorities.

Though, we have a marriage certificate I have gave different addresses for me and my wife.

Hi All,

Those who underwent document verification by Police at home, could you please confirm if copy of all the stamped pages of passport are required to be verified by the police or only first and last page? Also, does it matter if the address of my spouse on Aadhaar card is different? My spouse's last passport is in the same address as the aadhar card. Should I also give a copy of that? Thank you for your help.

Each and every page. It does not matter what address is there in any of the IDs. You may just want to ensure that whatever address you have provided in your application form, it is verifiable, i.e. someone in your family and/or your wife's family is available. For PCC, you need only the current and valid passport.

Thank you for your response. The policeman with our files contacted my dad today and has asked for copies of passport, aadhar card and pan card from my dad. I couldn't find any written proof on pcc guidelines or process that they require these documents for verification but since the policeman is asking, we have to provide a copy.

Whew! I finally got my PCC today. I applied for it on 18th July so exactly one month. The stamps are in black ink and only the signature is green. Is that ok?

24-JunPCC application reached BLS Brampton ( as per purolator)
24-JulApplication under process BLS ( as per BLS Tracking)

27-JulProcessing at Consulate General ( as per BLS tracking)

6-AugVerification Done by Local Police
17-AugPCC needs to be collected from the Regional Passport Office (as per Passport Seva tracking)
?PCC granted (Pending) ?
?PCC Printed (Pending ) ?

I would say , give yourself 2-3 months with all the delays in hand to get your PCC. i havent received it yet , but will update once i receive it. PCC work from India was pretty efficient. The officer did not come to my Place , but requested Documents to be submitted to Police Station. Within a week , SP office updated and submitted to RPO.
The only follow up i did was calling the SP office and Police station just once about the PCC and they responded well. I am a resident of Mumbai . Hope we all get PCC soon .

Cheers guys!! This forum really helps you plan things and take the timeline into consideration ..Keep Sharing and Helping Guys!!!

Hi All,

I have situation. I have applied for pcc and police verification was done in July 25. I didn't get any status update. It is in pcc needs to be collected from RPO. But when I checked with RPO, they told the police put the adverse because we are in Canada and not residing currently in the address specified in the passport. Now it is almost a month since police verification was done but no updates from consulate about the application. Has anyone faced similar situation because application mentioned as adverse for living out of country.

Hello Everyone,

My police verification was completed (police visited my home) on August 10, 2020. However, PSK website tracking is still showing “PCC application is under review at Passport Seva Kendra”.

How long should it take?
