I reached the passport office at 1.50 pm Went inside to wait for 2.15 pm slot. 

It started at 2 pm . We went inside after showing the appointment receipt.

At the lobby type horizontal counter , an executive checked out  Original as well as Xerox copies of documents , ie Pan , Aadhar ,  Birth certificate, Passing certificate ( ssc , graduation , any one is accepted. ). 

If any document is missing, they ask to get it. He typed A 23 on my token receipt.

 Within 5 minutes , I was called at  Counter A : Dc counter. Another executive checked all documents.  Both sets of original and Xerox . He scanned and saved all documents in computer. He Gave the Token number  with N for Normal . 

Clicked my photo , while i was sitting in opposite chair. 

Took impressions /  scans of Left hand's s , 4 fingers. Then Rhs 4 fingers , LHS thumb , Rhs thumb impression. 

Two signs on token. Sent to B & C counters which are crowded. 

There was CCD Tea / Coffee snacks counter , clean washrooms.

We had to wait here almost for an hour. They call the applicants in the lot of 20 to proceed towards B or C counter

At the B , C Counter again they check , tally your original documents with the scanned documents , which were sent from counter A .

Next they return all your Original as well as Xerox and tell you that you will receive a sms from Police department within 3 weeks for police verification.

I received the sms from Police within 3 days.
