The long-awaited request to open passport office in Udaipur has gained momentum after home minister Gulab Chand Kataria held a meeting with passport project officers on Thursday. Kataria strongly appealed to the officers to open the office soon in Udaipur whilst arranging for electricity, water, parking and other technical support.
During the meeting, Kataria said that passport office should soon be set up in Udaipur without having to shut down the office in Jodhpur.
When the question of space arose, Mayor Chandra Singh Kothari reasoned out by saying that additional floor will be constructed above the office premise so that there is no hurdle in the process of opening up the office. Post meeting, a report will be sent to Department in Delhi.
The passport officials stated that they will make attempt to open the office by January 2016. The officials inspected the suggested passport building at Panchwati. Along with Home Minister and Mayor were Anil Kumar Sobti, Director of Passport Service Project, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Vivek Jain Kataria, Regional Passport Officer, Nigam Officials and corporators.
