The local police in my home town (small town in UP) were quite efficient about it. About 10 days after my passport was approved, I got a phone call from the police station. They asked me to submit the following documents at the station:
- 2 passport police verification affidavits signed by my two local reference persons (the people I had specified on my passport application). This is a standard affidavit, and is available from any registrar/notary.
- 2 proofs of address (I had a copy of my Punjab National Bank passbook and a gas connection in my name)
- 2 photographs
All seemed pretty straightforward. Except that I couldn’t visit the police station in person (I was traveling for work). It was sorted out after paying a Rs. 1000 bribe to the official in-charge.
So, it seems, that the police verification is complete. Though I have no way of actually checking the status – the passportindia.gov website doesn’t seem to have any information on this.
The police never actually visited my home.
