Koraput: Union P&NG Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has inaugurated the new Passport Seva Kendra in Koraput this afternoon. The Post Office Passport Seva Kendra (POPSK) was set up at the Head Post Office in Koraput.
Union EAM Sushma Swaraj had earlier approved three POPSKs in Koraput, Sambalpur and Rourkela. In March 2017, CM Naveen Patnaik & Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had inaugurated the POPSK in Sambalpur.
With Koraput being operational today, long-standing problems of passport seekers of undivided Koraput district will be resolved.
CM Naveen Patnaik had recently written a letter to Sushma, seeking three more Post Office Passport Seva Kendras in Balasore, Bhawanipatna and Berhampur.
Later, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan followed suit and wrote a letter to the EAM, seeking Post Office Passport Seva Kendra in Angul, Berhampur, Balasore, Kendrapara, Bolangir, Jajpur and Bhawanipatna.
