The mPassport Seva (or the Mobile Passport Seva) is exclusively designed for the Indians, who are solely interested in passport-based information. It is a user-friendly and lightweight app that offers specific information about the following:
- Passport location centers
- Passport fees
- Contact details
- Passport application status
- General information about the passport
The Passport Seva project is executed by the MEA’s (Ministry of External Affairs) CPV (Consular, Passport, and Visa) division and Indian Government to provide all the services associated to passport in a transparent, convenient, and speedy manner.
It is one of the biggest projects being executed under the NeGP (National e-Governance Plan) in private- public-partnership with TCS (Tata Consultancy Services). The project is servicing the nationals through 77+ Passport Offices across India.
However, MEA planned to offer mobile services to the public and that’s when the concept of mPassport app was developed and launched. The app offers a wide range of services to all the smartphone users. The mPassport Seva app is available for iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows platforms.
