Dharmendra wants seven more Passport Seva Kendras in Odisha




 Union Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan today urged the Centre to open seven more Passport Seva Kendras in Odisha.        

"Growing need is felt to open additional POPSKs/PSKs to expedite issue of passports. I take this opportunity to request you to kindly issue necessary instructions for starting POPSKs/PSKs," Pradhan wrote to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

Pradhan named Angul, Berhampur, Balasore, Kendrapara, Bolangir, Jajpur and Bhawanipatna as the places requiring the POPSKs/PSKs.
"There is a demand for issue of passport from various segments... large number of skilled/semi-skilled workforce, students/research scholars, business communities and tourists," the Minister said in his letter.
Pradhan also expressed gratitude to Swaraj for sanctioning three POPSKs at Rourkela, Sambalpur and Koraput in Odisha.
