      Despite easier rules to obtain a passport, my case has been(and is) a nightmarish one.
      Two previous applications to the Bareilly Passport Office(one in 2000, the other in 2003), yielded no passports, because I was studying in Delhi, and address verification at my Dehra Dun home couldn't get done(although I did reach home both times to do the needful - read going to the SHO in Doon valley, meeting travel agents of various kinds, etc.)
      Now I need a tatkal passport as I need to travel from office to Canada.
      Several trips to the Delhi RPO yield nothing but tears(on my end, that is).
      The problem, you might ask - the Delhi RPO wants a letter / fax from the Bareilly office, saying they have closed the applications.
      Sounds easy, doesn't it?
      But it is anything but that, believe me.
      The Bareilly people say they have destroyed all documents. And won't give me this in writing.
      To my question as to whether I can apply afresh, without mentioning my previous applications, they have this to say,"do saal ka imprisonment hain, madam. Dekh lijiye."
      Do any of you have any idea what can be done in this case?
      Should I consult a legal expert? any suggestions who?
      The RTI link on the passport site is under construction.
      Pretty convenient, isn't it?
      I need some answers here.
      Do help.
