I received FedEx (and vfs) notice about my new passport being shipped to me.
I received a PV Initiation email shortly after. I’d put in my relative’s address, because my family doesn’t live in India anymore, and we don’t have a permanent address.
My mother happened to be visiting Chennai, so she was at my relative’s when the policeman said he’d show up.
The policeman visited, and asked for proof of address on my Aadhar, which didn’t at all match my uncle’s. Apparently this was an issue. He then asked for copies of my Aadhar and old passport to be sent via WhatsApp, and just left without saying anything. They also forgot to pay the customary bribe, because it happened so fast. I really wish there was a way to track whether my passport was valid/cleared.
Since I’ll receive my passport soon anyway, should I worry about being detained at the airport? I’m flying out Friday.
We’re worried that would just serve to antagonize the policeman further, as he’s the only cop in that police station doing passport rounds, and he’s already aware of the situation. My intention is to go meet him in person once I’m there, but I was worried my passport would be blocked at Indian immigration.
I’m not sure what happens in a post-verification scenario (I didn’t apply via Tatkal) - do they have a blocked list of passports?
