No beating about the bush.
Naresh Kevalramani, a passport applicant from Pune has been seeking appointment online for the last whole week but did not get it. He has been assured an appointment by a passport agent. Will TCS and the Regional Passport Office still blink despite this evidence?
The trauma of getting an online appointment after an applicant has filled his online application form for getting his new passport or renewing passport continues to haunt citizens in Pune.
While the efforts of the Pune Passport Grievance Forum (PPGF) has resulted in sporadic efficiency, the overall dismal picture of online appointments evading the applicant for weeks, the pre- and post-police verification issues continue. Similarly, the “hell care” attitude of citizens at the Passport offices run by the ministry of external affairs and the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) respectively has also been reported.
Following is an example of a forthright citizen Naresh Kevalramani, who has applied for renewal of the passports of his wife and son, but has not been able to get his appointment online since the past week. Finally, a passport agent assured him an appointment. Kevalramani has shown guts as a citizen to come out in the open and forward the email of the passport agent, instead of keeping quiet and getting his personal work done through these means. If many more Kevalramanis come out in the open, exposing passport agents, it could make a difference.
Kevalramani has been writing these emails to me in my capacity as the Convener of Pune Passport Grievance Forum. Reply to his emails and subsequently his emails to me have been copied to senior officers of TCS—Tanmoy Chakrabarty, Pradipta Bagchi, Ashis Babu and Manoj Raghav, as also to Muktesh Pardeshi, Chief Passport Officer; Shakuntala Rane and Regional Passport Officer. However, none of them have had the courtesy to reply.
Finally Kevalramani wrote to a passport agent called Sahil:
“On 2/26/13, Naresh Kevalramani <[email protected]> wrote: Hi Salil, Can you help me to book appointment for PSK Pune.
Kindly inform the charges.

Subject: Re: PSK Appointment
Thanks for your mail. Sir i can book an appointment for you at Pune PSK, for this the charges shall be Rs200, and you have to pay this amount after the booking of appointment, payment options:-
SBI & AXIS BANK, by net banking or directly deposit to these banks account.Plz. Reply ASAP”
I have forwarded this mail to the TCS and MEA’s passport authorities stating: “Oh my God—this is shocking Nareshji. Mr Raghav and Ms Rane could you please take immediate action on this agent? If not, it means there is a nexus between your employees and agents who are TOTALLY ILLEGAL!
The following mail trail between Kevalramani and me reveals the trauma passport applicants face:
“From: Naresh Kevalramani <[email protected]>
Date: Monday, February 25, 2013 3:26 PM
For the last one week, I am trying to get the appointment for passport application filled in for my wife and son (case of passport expiry). I find that the appointment are begun to be allotted around 3 pm and within 4 to 5 minutes all slots become full and the system is shut down.
I do not understand as to how I can get an appointment. I am trying for the last one week but unable to get the appointment. Twice I was successful but as soon as I selected the timing, I was logged out. Kindly help.
My reply/forwarded to Regional Passport Officer, Shakuntala Rane and Kevalramani:
“Dear Mrs Rane,
Please find below a complaint by Mr Naresh Kevalramamani who is not getting his online appointment. I am asking him to ‘walk-in’ at your office. Please do the needful
cheers and warm rgds
Dear Mr Kevalramani
Please visit the Passport Office, Senapati Bapat Road, during working hours of any working day and get your appointment there. I suggest you visit the passport office and meet Ms Rane, Regional Passport Officer or Ms Arora, Assistant Passport Officer, both of whom are very open to addressing complaints and will surely give you an appointment immediately. You may call Ms Rane or Ms Arora on 020-25675419. If you don't get thru her landline no. you may call Ms Rane on her cell no 08xxxxxx2.
All the best,
Kevalramani’s response to me:
Thanks for your prompt response and support.
I again tried today to get the online appointment. I was online since 2.45 pm on my broadband connection at home which is a AIRTEL 2 MBPS speed connected to my computer (Apple Mac Book Air) so no hardware or software issues. Only one laptop connected to the connection.
Today, I selected the time of 12.30 to 12.45 pm for 05 March and when asked to put in the confirmation code I put in the same and waited for the appointment confirmation. Instead of getting the confirmation I was logged out of the system. The system closed at 3.04 pm saying that all appointments are full today. So in effect one gets only 4 minutes to book the appointment which is impractical and unrealistic.
The same thing has happened twice before and I do not understand what type of a system this is built by TCS.
In fact when the application form is submitted on line the appointment should be given, the appointment can be for a later date say 15 or even 20 days later. Trying to get the appointment is becoming a daily ritual with no success.
I see a number of people who have been marked a copy of this mail. Can we citizens of India expect a realistic and practical system of working rather than this 4 minute slot everyday.
Await response from any one of the above people who have been marked copies and are part of the system.
My appeal to TCS officials since e-governance is their responsibility:
“Dear Mr Bagchi and Mr Raghav
This is a very serious problem and common occurrence. Pl immediately address this problem. Please treat this as SOS
Kevalramani writes to TCS officials with cc to me:
“Dear Mr Bagchi and Mr Raghav,
Though I am not a software engineer but an avid user of Internet since the last 15 years and use the net extensively for banking, online air and rail ticket booking, bill payments, etc.
Nowhere, I have seen such a system wherein the user makes the selection (in this case the appointment time) and is immediately logged out or that slot taken by some other individual. Even for airlines/ trains/ cinema tickets, I recollect that the slot (reservation) is available for 5 minutes for the user to confirm and proceed ahead with the payment.
Anyway, I am an individual and will somehow manage to get the appointment by personally meeting the passport officers but as a system, this needs a drastic improvement to make it user friendly and instill confidence in the citizens that passport application process is an easy process and not a pain, as currently it is.
My reply with cc to TCS officials addressed in Kevalramani’s mail:
“Yes, many passport applicants are frustrated at this inability to get appointments. I urge the RPO and TCS officials to check whether there is an alleged nexus between the agents and employees of the Passport office. How is it that agents can assure appointment and get it done immediately? I am sure this is not rocket science and if TCS has the will, it can immediately solve the problem. This is sheer citizen harassment.
Please take action, Sirs.
Kevalramani after trying for an appointment again, writes a mail to me:
“The same sequence of events happened today….
I selected a time slot of late noon hours and filled in the security code (the alpha numeric code seen on the captcha), immediately after this the system logged me out and on the second attempt to login and get the appointment, all appointments are booked.
The system was open for exactly 4 minutes.
Can somebody from TCS advise and tip me on the trick to get the appointment ???????
Finally Kevalramani writes to a passport agent called Sahil
Pasted below the correspondence I had with one of the agent who has openly posted on a website saying that he can manage appointment for any PSK in India.
I asked him his charges and sent him a mail yesterday evening which was promptly replied by him confirming the charges at Rs 200 for each appointment made by him. Payment to be made after the appointment is booked.
You can also send him a mail and ask him his charges.

The quality of inflight meals aboard Indian airlines have drastically come down while the Indian Railways seems to be going from strength to strength. It is time for a rethink in the way airlines serve flyers
So, how many of us remember the meals on domestic flights within India, which were good enough to discuss at home? As a matter of fact, for many, the inflight meal was best part of flying. Take a look at just some of the photographs from those days, not too long ago.
Even the thali served outside Delhi’s domestic departure, before privatisation, reared its ugly head and laid low all pretences of decent meals at terminals. Take a look at this photo
And then came the great low-fare no-frills revolution. Here, for example, is what you got free of charge on Indigo when they started—a barf bag and a bottle of water.
Soon thereafter, you could start buying sandwiches and soft drinks and stuff, and to-date, their purchased food onboard is one of the best. Plus, they don't make such a fuss if you bring your own onboard, they gladly provide napkins too.
SpiceJet, in the beginning, used to give free cookies. People started grabbing them by the bucket. End of cookies.
It then started with these really healthy whole wheat sandwiches, alas, not found onboard anymore.
Kingfisher Red tried to make amends but it was too late. Still, the concept of its free hot meal in a box was fun.
Go Air, when it started, had some really mixed up offerings, like this one below:
Later on, they got better:
Air Deccan, of course, was from a different planet, so to speak. They tried to refuse me free drinking water. Then, I threw the rule-book at them—commercial passenger licences ensure that ample potable drinking water is to be provided to passengers onboard. After this, they served it, for free. Besides this, their food was nothing much to write home about.
Fast forward to present. This is a particularly good meal I had on an Air India flight from Kochi to Delhi about a year ago.
Jet Airways and its various avatars are now at a point where often you do not know till you board whether you will get a meal, or not, either way, this is dinner on a Chennai-Delhi flight. Compare it to the one above, on Air India?
In the name of “no-frills” you can end up spending upwards of Rs250 for almost nothing, like these:
Take a look at what is on SpiceJet’s website:http://www.spicejet.com/foodmenu.asp. They make it look very appetising and mouth watering on their website.
Today, fares between low-cost and full-service airlines are often more or less the same. As a matter of fact, Air India is often cheaper on competing routes. This is considering the kind of time and stress involved before boarding a flight and taking into account the fact that you may have missed a meal. This calls for a much healthier and better meal than the greasy sandwiches that many of our airport snack bars seem to serve. Another thing is the fake ‘foreign’ fast food (which is another report altogether) and expensive hot cooked meals which have lost all semblance to value for money by the time it is served.
On the other hand, the Indian Railways appears to be going from strength to strength, and not just on the Deccan Queen but also on the Shatabdi and Rajdhani and Duronto class of trains.
It is about time airlines did what Indian Railways do: Define a meal by weight, charge a reasonable price, and most of all—healthy options. A bowl of salad or fresh cut fruit was always there on the table in the good old days.
The much talked about Railway Budget, presented two days ahead of the Union budget, has turned out to be largely a non-event. While sparing passengers from another hike within a month, Pawan Kumar Bansal, however increased charges for super-fast trains, and fees for ticket cancellation and reservations
Pawan Kumar Bansal, the minister of railways on Tuesday spared passengers from another fare hike within a month, giving indications that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government does not want to upset voters ahead of the general elections.
Bansal, the first minister from the Congress to present the Railway Budget in 17 years, however, increased supplementary charges for super fast trains, reservation fee, clerkage charge, cancellation charge and tatkal charges. The enhanced reservations fee has been abolished.
“On the whole, there were no fireworks in the Rail Budget. While linking freight to fuel costs is the right move, subsidized passenger fares account for bulk of railway losses and until that is addressed, the financial position of railways is unlikely to turn around quickly, and investment in the sector will languish,” said Nomura Financial Advisory and Securities (India) Pvt Ltd, in a note.
Bansal said, fuel adjustment component (FAC) would be linked with the revision for freight tariff from 1 April 2013, which would increase freight charges by an average of 5%.
“...the increase in freight rates which would be linked with the diesel price movements would add to the burden of price of products which use railways for transportation purposes. Given that the finance ministry has made it clear that the price of diesel will be adjusted upwards on a regular basis, albeit, in small measures, the impact would tend to be escalated over the year. Therefore, it is not surprising that the stock market has not reacted positively in net terms to the Railway Budget,” DR Dogra, managing director and chief executive, CARE Ratings, said.
Too little provisions
Surprisingly, while the railway minister has announced several amenities for passengers like lifts for passenger at A1, A and other pilgrim stations, he made a provision of just Rs1 crore as against an estimated cost of Rs100 crore. Similarly, for installing escalators at 179 important stations, Bansal has provided Rs1 crore as against estimated cost of Rs134.25 crore.
It is the same fate of his other ideas as well. For providing wi-fi internet facility in 50 rakes of Shatabdi, Rajdhani and Duranto trains, the estimated cost is Rs55 crore and Bansal has provided only Rs10 lakh.
Another interesting aspect of this year’s Rail Budget is lack of funding for signalling and telecommunication-related works. This work does not find favour with Bansal and for almost all projects of signalling and telecommunication in every division the minister has provided just Rs1 lakh for each project, irrespective of the estimated cost. For example, in the Eastern Railway division, the minister has provided Rs1 lakh for replacement of RE and quad cables between Jamtar and Jhaja sections (106 km), as against estimated cost of Rs31.08 crore. Even for replacing signalling gears for route relay interlocking at Kurla, the minister has provided Rs1 lakh as against estimated cost of Rs15.24 crore.
Surprisingly, there is not a single paisa provision made by the minister for setting up the Indian Railway Institute for Advanced Electronic Technology (IRIAET) at Nagpur while its estimated cost is Rs21.25 crore. How the Railways can set up the institute without any funding would be interesting to watch, though.
Mumbai to get AC local trains
Bansal said that the Railways would introduce its first air-conditioned (AC) EMU rake (local train) on Mumbai suburban network during 2013-14. The Railways would introduce 72 and 18 additional services in Mumbai and Kolkata, respectively.
Here are the other proposals from the Railway Budget...
Passenger/rail users’ amenities
Measures for improving safety & security
Training and recruitment
Financial performance 2012-13
Budget Estimates 2013-14
Annual Plan 2013-14
