Mangalore, Aug 10, 2014 : Newly appointed MLC Ivan D’Souza  who visited the Passport Seva Kendra in Mangalore on August 9, Saturday,  has expressed his displeasure over the delay in issuing passports. He has  requested the government to   increase the staff strength in the Kendra so that it can process at  least one thousand applications every day.

His visit followed complaints by many that the Kendra took nearly a month and a half for processing documents which inconvenienced many.

The MLC also promised that he would lead a delegation from the city to  meet the authorities at the Regional  Passport Office at Bangalore in order to mount pressure on them to appoint additional staff at the Mangalore Kendra.

Pointing out to the problems faced by many applicants who had to  remain in queue outside the office for long, Ivan said the officials have informed him that  the office premises would be extended to the  first floor and better amenities like seating arrangements, wash room and drinking water facility would be provided to the applicants.
