To the happiness of many citizens, our present interior minister announced in September this year that passports will be issued for a ten year period with increased fee instead of five year. Further, he also directed the DG immigration and passports to start an SMS services for tracking of passports and home delivery service in six major cities. Despite three months, not a single service has been started. I checked twice at Saddar Passport office for these new services and no action has been taken. I would like to request the minister to look into this matter and order forthwith implementation as this would be a feather in his cap. These services are badly needed in Pakistan.
