Criteria for Issue of Passport under Tatkaal Scheme 

The Government had introduced the Tatkaal scheme to issue passport to citizens in an expedited manner (after liberalizing the requirement of documents and within the basic parameters of security consideration). The Scheme was launched on 1 January 2000 to provide a transparent and systematic avenue to applicants for issue of passports in a time bound manner, subject to production of proof of urgency. Under the scheme, passport applications are processed on post-police verification basis (where required). The Scheme was further expanded and liberalized with effect from 23 December 2006. Now, no proof of urgency is required for out of turn fresh/re-issue of passport under Tatkaal Scheme. Similarly, no Tatkaal documentation is required for minor passport, if application falls in no Police Verification category. There was also expansion of the list of the officials authorized to issue Verification Certificate. Also the applicant has been given an option to submit the Tatkaal applications on the basis of three documents out of 16 documents (one of the three documents has to be a photo identity document).
