There is a kind of Internet revolution happening in India. Every other day, new people are joining the Internet. Why did the Government of India lag behind? From filing RTI to applying for pan card, everything is possible online.
A Digital Copy of the Aadhaar card can also be downloaded. Due to digital governance, it has become easier than before to apply for many things. The same facility is also applicable for applications for passports.
The good thing is that the online Passport Apply process has been kept very easy. The government also wants the general public not to suffer for essential services like passports.
Many were thinking of apply passport online. Many people still get upset about trivial matters, such as how to fill the form and what documents will be required.
For this reason, many people take the help of the agent and complete their work by paying an amount. Such people believe that many hours will be wasted in completing work in government offices. It may not be a detour from one office to another for this work.
If you are also thinking of helping the agent, read the suggestions below, as it is now very easy to apply online for a
passport. However, the passport making process is still long and you have to go to the Passport Office despite applying online. But it is decided that you will not need an agent.
