It gives me great pleasure to felicitate all our Passport Issuing
Authorities in India and abroad on the third Passport Seva Divas being held
on the 24ft June, 2015. The day signifies the enactment of the Passports
Act, 1967 and its enabling provisions of passport issuance. The Ministry of
External Affairs and its subordinate oflice, the Central Passport
Organization have reason to celebrate as well as to mark the event with
renewed commitment to provide passport services in a timely, assured and
efficient manner.
The past one year has been noteworthy in many respects. In
particular, I am proud of the recent three ISO certifications of Passport Seva
which is hallmark of international quality standards besides being the
recipient of the National Award on e-Governance and Web Ratna Platinum
Icon Award. It was also the first time that the Ministry has taken passport
services closer to citizens in a big way by way of organizing Passport Seva
Camps in far off places across the country. The opening of four Passport
Seva Kendras in North-East, co-opting of Common Services Centres,
organizing Passport Melas and simplifying the procedures for passport
application submission are some other citizen-friendly measures that have
been taken in the last one year.
our Government is committed to the principle of 'Minimum
Government, Maximum Governance'and delivering services to citizens in a
convenient, accountable and transparent manner and putting in piace more
and more inclusive and robust mechanisms to achieve these objectives. Let
us rededicate ourselves, on this important day, to take more effective steps
with renewed vigour to make our passport issuance system worthy of
Sushma Swaraj
