Tassaduq Mufti seeks extension of POPSK services for Pir Panchal, Chenab Valley

Coordinator Chief Minister’s Grievance Cell, Tassaduq Mufti, Monday said that Post Office Passport Seva Kendra (POPSK) services should be extended to Pir-Panchal region and Chenab Valley for hassle-free delivery of passport related services to the inhabitants of these areas.

          Mufti expressed happiness that Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in collaboration with the Department of Posts (DOP) have decided to utilize the Head Post Offices (HPO) as Post Office Passport Seva Kendras (POPSK) to ensure wider coverage in the various Districts of Leh, Udhampur, Anantnag, Baramulla and Kathua of the State.

          He said that several deputations from Chenab Valley and Pir Panjal region had approached him demanding that similar facilities be provided to their respective areas as they are facing difficulties due to the remoteness of the area and difficult terrain in the delivery of passport related services.

          The Coordination CM’s Grievance Cell asked the Regional Passport Officer Jammu that a case should be formulated and forwarded to the higher authorities in the MEA, Government of India for necessary sanction in this regard.
