Minimise the use of Police Verification for Passport, use other recognised institutions
This petition had 7 supporters
Passport verification is the most assured way of getting bribery by Police personnel without even asking for it. It was always like that but many of us would be wondering why not any step was taken to identify the alternative solutions for passport address verification.
There are other reliable institutions who can verify the address of a person whose credibility is not in question. These parties are definitely more reliable than the most corrupt department in India which is Police.
Anyone who has all the documents and have no criminal records can be identified as a person with good credentials.
There are at least three parties who can be identified for address verification than police.
1)Registered medium size companies doing business in India for last 3 years and filling returns and have no criminal charges pending in the court. Such employers can verify the address for their employees.
2)Class 1 and class 2 gazetted officers.
3) Banks can also be asked to run address verification for their customers and banks can be made liable for the false verification.
All above said institutions / parties can be made liable for false verification and they have more reasons to do this duty responsibly than police.
Every small step which can reduce bribery culture should be taken hence request you to please sign this petition to end the culture of bribery in passport address verification cases.
