Making a passport was said to be the most toughest job because the process is so strict and lengthy that it takes time. Each and every aspect, every detail is verified. You have to properly waste your 4-5 hours in the process. First application then doing the A – B – C (Counters) Even a slight difference will keep your file on hold. Unless you submit right documents nothing can be done. Not an easy job. The process should be cut short and made easy for a normal person. Otherwise it is good.
Let’s say, If in the form a female mentions “married” as the marital status, she has to attach the copy of marriage registration. When asked why it is mandatory, well the expected reply comes “You are declaring it na” And if she is not having marriage certificate, by any chance, she has to make an affidavit mentioning the details along with a joint photograph with husband. FULL-PROOF system. Fine, I agree and support this. It is necessary as a proof of marriage. If she is declaring she has to give proof. No one not even her can misuse or misguide.
Now let’s see the other side of it. When a male mentions “married” as the marital status, he has to attach NOTHING. Yes..nothing. Just the name filled in the form will make “that named” girl his wife. No verification of this. No marriage certificate, no affidavit, not even photograph, no ID of that girl. I was really shocked knowing this. How can this be happening. Can’t that be misused ??
I am not talking about equality between male and female at all. I am just differentiating the right from the wrong. i am not advocating one gender or disregarding the other. At least the system should be proper.
