Answering Show cause notice from India while in US - Urgent Response Needed
Hi There,

Thanks for your attention to my post.

I have received show cause notice for my passport and they are telling me that I have suppressed material information while submitting application for passport. The type of show cause notice is PVR Review and it looks like it stands for police verification review.

If I recollect correctly what happened was, when I applied for passport there was police verification and I was out of station that time when they came for police verification. But my father went on behalf of me and provided all the details. Police sent report to passport office and I did receive my passport without any hassles. But after almost 1 year 3 months I am getting this show cause notice. I am right now in US and I am wondering how to deal with this situation. They have mentioned in the show cause notice to provide explanation and submit application again. Can you please help me with the below questions.

1. How do I respond to this show cause notice from US and what is the procedure?
2. Is there a way I can reach out Indian Embassy on this?
3. What happens if they ask me to submit passport application again? What will happen to my present passport while I am still in US? Do I have to go for stamping again? :(
4. Is there way this can be effectively handled from US it self?

Appreciate your valuable comments and response to my post.

In the mean time I have asked my Father to provide explanation to show cause notice and letting passport office know that I did not suppress any information. I hope they will understand what has happened and they will not ask me to submit the application form again.
