Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti today e inaugurated a Passport Seva Kendra for Anantnag here today.

The opening of this Kendra would help in pacing up the process of passport issuance and delivery by bringing the service closer to people’s doorstep benefitting some 20 lacs souls of South Kashmir districts. This would reduce the waiting time for the applicants by considerable measure.
