NIC joined hands with MEA to overhaul the citizen interface for issuance of Passport. Since then, the process has improved on a day-to-day basis. In this journey, the most important reward has been a better level of comfort to our citizens seeking a passport. The computerization of passport office, Ranchi was entrusted to NIC during 2003.

Passport Control & Issuance System (PCIS) is complete solution which starts with the submission of application for passport. The details are entered and a number of checks, local as well as online with central database are carried out before the passport is printed out for distribution.
