How to Apply for Passport or Police Clearance Certificate in India


PCC is required for many cases if you are travelling outside the country or to get the VISA or another country as well. It will take around 20-30 days. Cost - 500 Rs.

It will cost you 500 rs if you process it directly with passport office. If you with the agent then it will cost you 1000 to 1500 rs depending on the commission of the agent. I would suggest trying individually as it is much difficult now to apply and get the PCC. You can also get PCC from the police station but it will be in the local language and which will not work at many places.
