I have filled in the online application for renewal of passport for my kids, I could not get the appointment time from the psk website it is always giving the message "no appointment available at present please try later". I went to the psk tambaram along with my wife and kids and waited in the que for 2 hrs finally when I came to the counter the lasy said without appointment they will not entertain. Later some of the people who managed to get appointment were telling they pais rs.1000 to some agent nearby the passport seva kendra. When I was Cming out the security watchman came and told to meet the person near the passport office ( agent ) who can arrange appointment by taking rs. 1000 per applicant. I feel tcs is encouraging corruption by such practices without being transparent and giving no information to the public.
