With the objective to end the harassment and pain of the passport seekers in rural areas and to ease the process further for obtaining passport, Access to Information (a2i) Programme of the Prime Minister's office (PMO) with the help of Department of Immigration and Passports, has taken the passport service to the grassroots.
A passport-seeker, now, will not have to go to district passport office time and again as the service for obtaining passport is being provided at the Union Digital Centres (UDCs) throughout the country.
"This service has been launched in UDCs in eight districts so far- Rangpur, Panchagarh, Pabna, Kushtia, Jessore, Barisal, Chandpur and Sylhet. We are going to initiate the service in more than five thousand UDCs in the country very soon," said Mazedul Islam, program coordinator of a2I.
Sounding his excitement over the new initiative, the passport boss also said since the inception of the service in mid June in the UDCs in eight districts, around three thousand passport seekers have submitted applications. ?BSS
