I got my passport. After years of nagging by my girlfriend ( who is my wife now, eventually ), I finally got myself to register at the passport seva kendra(psk) @ Kolkata. I had filled up my form on 8th of December, 2016. I took my documents verification dates on 16th Dec. Indian psk are handled by TCS (an Indian multinational IT services company ) and therefore the whole process was completed within an hour.
Police verification was initiated within a week and after getting my documents and residential proof verified by the local police station, I finally got my passport on 6th January, 2017.
