I want to contribute this post to the forum on process to get PCC from India. For most of applications submitted in passport office recieve the PCC certificate by the next day depends on their CID check is clear during Passport issuance/ clearance in other case;

The PP form is asked and for verification it goes to central Passport -> CID office -> local police station -> central CID office -> Passport office. The enitre procedure takes close to 2 months which crosses the timelines given by CO. It can be extended but u will be always worried about your PCC certificate.

I suggest to go for PCC immediately after your application status changed to "Application being processed further" and do not wait until CO ask for it.

PCC is valid for 1 year,

to get PCC within a day you can also try submitted enough address proofs and if your passport is done in tatkal, make sure they have done police verification at that point.

The PCC is issued in passport office.......if the police check was already over and address never changed in your passport then on the same day u can get the PCC......
but apply for PCC where ur passport is issued, if u apply in some other state then this may take several weeks to get PCC.

Hi Amit

what a co-incidence. i just spoke to an agent at the Delhi PP office, i got my pp made in tatkal and just wanted to make sure my police check is clear, to my surprise, even after paying the cops (which is normal in India when they physically come to check if you stay at the given address or not) the report says person not contactable.. Holy fudging piece of Crop.. Imagine, someone who gives so much of advice here to people that your police check shud be done yada yada, i have to go through the ordeal again.. i hate this corrupt system

I am so furious right now.. i can look at a piece o glass and crack it i am sure hehehe.. i dunno if i should be laughing or crying. husband is middle of giving interviews for a change in job which can even be change of city and we are stuck.. arghhhhhh

anyone game fr breaking heads??

Hi Anj,

Same thing happened with me, Get your contacts in CID office and the process will be quicker....I could have done sumthing for you if you are in mumbai.

Anyways my head is for you to break it for the bunch of valuable advices you have provided to me and to this forum.

ukv when was your pp made? its best to go to your native place, go to the regional pp office there, give ur pp at the office (since ur police verification must have been done when u got ur pp made-if it was in last 2 yrs, they dont do verification again), they do it in no time.

Hey Anj

Do you suggest doing PCC before launching Visa or its mandate that the police clearance certificate has to be dated after Case Officer request one ???

@Anj - In my case - I live in same address which is in my passport too.
But my wife is from other state - so shall I get her PCC from her native place or do I get it from here only?

FYI - Am yet to apply for VISA - just trying to get ahead of myself and collect all documents and this seem like might take time due to different state thing.

Hi superm,

For your PCC, since the current address where you are staying and the passport address is same, you should get the PCC on the same day itself. As far as your wife is concerned, you need to apply for PCC at the local Passport Seva Kendra in the city you are residing. Since her current address is different than the address on the passport, therefore police verification will be done by the local police station in whose jurisdiction your current address falls in.

This is the procedure which was given to me when I had inquired at the Bangalore PSK. I had got my PCC done last month for me and my wife and the local police had come to verify the address since our passports had the Mumbai address. The process was very smooth and everything got completed in about 10 days. There was no police verification done for us from Mumbai.

Hope this helps.

All the best.
Cheers.

The documents needed are just your address proof where you are residing.
For eg.
  1. Electricity bill (It should be in your name. need to produce one bill from this year and one from last year. You should be able to prove that you were staying at that address.
  2. Gas Connection (it should be in your name. Again you need to produce bills.)
  3. Bank Letter which states your address as per their records. If the address in your bank records are not the same as your current address. You can get it updated and then ask them to give you a letter which confirms your address as per the bank records.

Since I recently shifted to Bangalore I did not have anything to prove my address. And they do not accept rental agreement as proof of address. So I just got a letter from HDFC BANK which menitoned my Bangalore address. I of course had to get it updated from my Mumbai address to Bangalore. I also had to give 1 year's bank statement.

I suggest that you take letter from your bank for address proof and 1 year bank statement. That is all I had taken and they accepted it without any issues. Please ensure that you get two letters one for you and another for your wife because you need to also prove that your wife resides in the same address. It sounds silly isn't it? But I guess you will need to do it.

Good luck.

Cheers

Thanks again- appreciate the information!
Would not my passport be enough as its of my current address only. But any how get letter from bank.
Yes, for my wife I would get the address updated and get letter from them - does this letter cost anything from bank?

Also - do you know by chance if its possible to get wife's PCC from her native place (if found easy) - then would it be acceptable? Does PCC itself has address/state mentioned on it?

You have chances of getting the PCC the same day as the police verification was done last year and there was no address change. Even if by chance they go for police verification, they will not take your passport till you get the pcc, they wll just verify it on the day you apply for PCC and return it to you.
