Police Verification alongside Passport Re-issuance

I renewed my Passport from Houston /VFS office. I received my passport in Normal Processing in one week but my father was contacted for address verification after passport was issued here. Should he ask for a confirmation letter from Police Dept that verification is complete. Why are they issuing passport before police verification ? I also found out that if passport is renewed after expiry only then police verification is needed. My address on Passport is same as previous passport ( India address). Any similar experiences or proactive steps to take.

There are many such experiences. Better to get the verification completed, irrespective of whether you already received your passport or it’s under processing.
