The Centre has announced a scheme for “prompt re-issue” of passports at free-of-cost in Chennai and other flood-affected districts.

The special scheme, effective from December 8 (Tuesday), would be valid for two months, an official release said.

There will be instant re-issue of passports damaged in rains, free of cost at regional passport offices, it said.

A special ‘passport mela’ for flood victims would also be conducted on December 12 at three Passport Seva Kendras functioning in Chennai.

To get a duplicate passport, applicants are not required to submit an online application. “An application on plain paper and the flood damaged passport are required”, it said.
