This maybe a little off topic however I am in a situation where I need to get my renewed passport max by 10 DEC. Can you guys please throw in your suggestions in order for me to achieve this seemingly impossible task.

Thanks

Do you guys not have a pay for priority service or one where you can queue, sit & wait rather than normal slow service?

You can apply under tatkaal; as long as you have two present address proofs. You should get the PP in your hands within 3 days (source: personal experience)

There is.

You need to go to the regional passport office (not the passport seva kendras) between 9:30 to 12 in the morning with the documents. They would give you a stamp on your ARN (printed from the net) with which you can walk into the PSKs between 9:30 to 11 AM within the next 3 days.

Thanks a lot mate, this information definitely helps. But can this be done even if i have an appointment for few days later or is it to be done only in case i am not getting an appointment?
Also in the above scenario it effectively means 28th i can get an appointment in PSK. Any particular reasons i need to quote in RPO? I will try today at 6.30pm to get an appointment.

Yes its possible. Recently, we changed name of my wife in passport. Once application was filed, we received new passport in 1 week.

Also, it depends on Police Clearance. My wife got call to come from Police station and was asked to report. We went there, they verified all the docs. next, a police inspector came to house in evening to verify. After, his approval, passport was dispatched quickly.

Both are done in parallel. For my wife, once application was submitted status was - Your application is approved. We have sent your passport for printing.. As we applied for police clearance status was - Awaiting Police Clearance Certificate. Your application is approved. We have sent your passport for printing.. Last one was - Your passport is dispatched via bla bla speed post number.
