    Tatkal passport application for re-issue (address change and Spouse name addition) on Chennai-Saligramam PSK office.

    Procedure followed:
    1. Fill the form and upload it in online.
    2. I Myself booked appointment under Tatkal scheme
    3. Before that make ready with your documents, don’t worry if you dont have photo copies, inside the office Xerox machine available
    4. Annexure -I, Ration Card, Election ID card & marriage certificate i had but they asked for 3rd id proof, so i took 1 year bank statement with Covering letter (where your photo has to be attested by the bank officials)
    5. First counter they will check all your documents and verify if its ok they will give you token number (for tatkal starts with T)
    6. And then head to waiting area where you will see your token number displayed and head towards the counter name.
    7. Again documents verification and they will do scan your documents, fee collection once checked Photo will be taken (for babies you can produce passport size photo taken outside with white background)
    8. Once done they will show your form for your confirmation how the passport first and last page will look and for spelling errors etc….
    9 Then again to waiting area, wait for your token number to display on LCD’s(previous counter is called A counter, this is B counter) I think till this point all people are TCS employees
    10. Now you will be headed to counter B, where passport officials(Govt staffs) will again verify and few questions to you(first question how do you got appointment & which travel agent)
    11. After this point if they are OK you will be asked to wait again in waiting area, this time its for Counter – C (Approving authority)
    12. APO will check and will tell you are done you will receive your passports in few days(under tatkal)
