        (i). In complex cases, such as adoption, application on behalf of a minor from single parent, major change in name, duplicate passport, doubtful documentation, the processing time will be approximately 30 days excluding the date of submission of application. Mandatory Pre Police Verification cases such as J&K and Nagaland subjects would also need additional processing time.
        (ii). Issue of passport is subject to data check in the system and finding no adverse entry/ report.

              There is no difference whatsoever between a normal passport and a Tatkal passport. The difference lies in the way they were made. A normal passport is basically less prioritized than a tatkal passport and hence gets delivered later than it. So if you are in dire need of a passport as fast as possible you should definitely go ahead and a Tatkal registration for the best results.
