Hi, Police verification for my mother's new passport application has been done more than 2 months ago but not yet been sent to the Regional Passport Office Kolkata. Hence the Passport Application status is showing "Police Report has not been received". Whenever I call the police verification office they say that the file is ready and will be sent in this week. Could anyone suggest what should be done from my side? A quick repsonse will be highly appreciated. Thanks for your time & suggestion. Regards, Ananda
As reported by Anupam Chakravartty at indianexpress.com on Apr 01, 2010 Vadodara : The Gujarat High Court has directed the CID (Economic Offences) to arrest all the 33 accused beneficiaries in the Rs 70-crore scam in the Karamsad Cooperative Bank at Vallabh Vidyanagar by the end of next month. The court of Justice M R Shah dismissed CID’s plea to extend the investigation for another two months and asked the action taken report to be tabled by April 30. After a seven-year long wait, the CID (Economic offences) took over the investigation from Vidyanagar police station and arrested nine people in the case, including five of the bank’s directors. Among them were former state minister Dilip Patel and former BJP MP Natu Patel. “Around 33 loan-takers are yet to be arrested as many of them have left the country,” said Deputy Superintendent of Police B J Jadeja. However, Hitesh Patel, who had reportedly filed an RTI application seeking details of borrowers and guarantors, says that if borrowers are booked for misappropriation of Rs 70 crore from the bank, then the guarantors have to be nabbed. The RTI reply shows that the arrests could go well beyond 240. Meanwhile, in a February 26 ruling in the same case, Justice Shah had directed the CID to investigate the reasons for the bank’s liquidation. “But a more detailed investigation is required to find out why the Karamsad Urban Cooperative Bank Limited has gone into liquidation,” Shah said while passing an oral order. According to the CID (Economic Offences), policemen from Anand and Ahmedabad, who investigated the issue in a span of six months found that the trustees involved their own relatives. “They gave loans to various parties, who had produced forged documents,” said a CID officer. A report made by the Anand Economic Offences Detection Cell says that the bank gave loans violating guidelines laid down by the Reserve Bank of India. “The Bank also invested Rs 9 crore in Home Trade, which was against the directives of the Reserve Bank of India. The bank also extended loans to Keval Land Developers and Ghanshyam Patel on the basis of bogus documents,” wrote Inspector B J Pathan in the report made to the Gujarat High Court when the issue had come to the light. Further, four persons, including a managing director of a farm implement manufacturing company based in Palanpur of Sabarkantha district, and his brother, were reportedly booked by the CID for producing fake bills for farm implements that were never bought, but approved by the bank trustees.

The Madras High Court has ordered notices on a writ appeal against a single judge order directing the Public Department to clarify a Government Order that exempts the CB-CID from the purview of the Right to Information Act. A Division Bench of Justice P.K. Misra and Justice K.K. Sasidharan ordered notices to the Tamil Nadu Information Commission, the Chennai City Commissioner of Police and the CB-CID Superintendent of Police, returnable in four weeks. Vishwanath Swami sought a directive to the authorities to ensure compliance with the Act, besides action against the persons who denied him certain information under the Act. He was a party-in-person â€œtrying to exposeâ€ Kalki Bhagawan and his activities. He said the single judge order left him at the mercy of the Information Commission, which was reluctant to ensure that its own directives to the authorities were complied with. Besides the details of the investigation carried out by the police, Mr. Swami sought to know whether any departmental action was taken against the investigating officer and other officials named in his complaint.

Hi, I'm writing my concern for the first time; and I hope that someone in the forum will help me. I have also read many other passport not received issues in this forum; and the solution suggested thereafter 'RTI'; but my problem got compounded recently with something which I never anticipated and I just want to seek your help to make sure that I do the right thing. I filed my renewal application in July 2007. The police verification was completed in Aug 2007. From September onwards, the online status of my application kept on showing the following status - 'It is to regret that due to unavoidable circumstances the despatch of Passport has been delayed and will now be despatched in a weeks time.' The weeks passed and then months; but there was no sign of passport. I visited the RPO, Delhi in November 2007 only to know that there were some objections. The passport officer asked me to come back again with the refilled application form along with one more address proof (preferably voter id or passbook copy of any state bank). I revisted RPO in Dec 2007 with the documents as suggested only to come to know that this was not required, since the objection was on the Date of Birth mismatch. I was not sure as to what mismatch they were talking about, since they were not sure of that too. But lucklily, I had all the documents; and I submitted the same to RPO the same day. I was asked by RPO to wait for another 15-20 days or else revisit again. Come Feb 2008; I again visited RPO and after a wait of 2 hours in the Admin department; I was told that the CID (police verification) report has not been received by them. When I started asking them questions, the person incharge told me that the police has sent the verification report of some lady against my name; and the same has been put up in my file. (I'm not sure why will they file the wrong report in my file and sleep over it for months; and also update the wrong status on the web). He also told me that they have sent the case back to the SSP of my area in first week of Jan to get the report. When I questioned them that why did it take the passport office close to 8 months to realize that, the person incharge was furious and asked me to leave and come back with the police dispatch report. The same day, I visited the police station; and I was informed that the correct report was sent by Police; and the RPO is fooling around with me. I was also suggested by the Munshi to go to SSP's office and file the complaint. Also, when I now see the online status of my file number; I see nothing. Now, this seems like a can of worms; the more I'm getting into it... the more it is eating me. I'm lost as to what I should do. I need to fly next month to states; and I urgently require the passport. Do I really need to file for an RTI or would it make matters worse? Any help and direction to help me solve my grievance would be highly appreciated. Regards, Troubled Citizen
AHMEDABAD: If additional Director General of Police O P Mathur is to be believed, CID is now 'Criminal Intelligence Department'. In a last ditch attempt to escape accountability under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, Mathur has submitted before the Gujarat Information Commission (GIC) that â€œCID stands for criminal intelligence department and therefore, falls under the category of security agency.â€ TOI had filed an RTI application on the Sohrabuddin encounter case, on which, the CID had denied information, stating a state government notification exempting it from RTI. This exemption has been challenged and is being heard at GIC. The RTI Act allows state governments to exempt 'intelligence and security organisations' established by them. Information in respect of allegations of corruption and human rights violations shall be excluded. It was argued earlier before the GIC that CID is an investigative agency and not an 'intelligence and security organisation' as exempted under the RTI. It was also argued that if CBI is not in the Central government's list of exempted organisations, how can CID be exempted here. Mathur, in his written submissions has again denied access to information, arguing disclosure would impede the process of investigation, in this case - the Sohrabuddin encounter. He also has quoted an apex court decision, which criticises 'trial by media'. On why CID should not be put under the RTI ambit, Mathur has submitted that it is not, only an investigative agency, it collects intelligence pertaining to crime and criminals, keeps a watch over narco-terrorism, influx of counterfeit notes, organised crime, and looks into the country's internal security. According to Police Bhavan sources, Mathur was so jittery about the hearing at GIC on Wednesday, that he despatched an inspector general rank officer to observe and report to him on the proceedings.
