Step 6.2: Pre Verification Counters/Token Issuance Counters:
At the pre-verification area the documents are checked by the staff and a token is issued. Now you can proceed to a comfortable Waiting Lounge and wait for your token number to appear on one of the electronic displays. When your token number is displayed, proceed to the stage one, Processing Counter.
Note: Applicants who, despite appointment, have been “refused token” due to no availability of required set of documents can revisit the same PSK as “Walk-IN”, within next 3 working days from the date of appointment and as per the time mentioned in the appointment slip. On -line appointment is not mandatory for these applicants.
