How to get Indian Police Clearance in India

If you are currently living in India, the Indian PCC should be obtained from Indian Passport services.

If you are currently living outside India i.e. you are an NRI, then you should get Indian police clearance from Indian Embassy.

Indian PCC Fees in India

The Indian Police clearance fees is INR 500 per person in India. Fees is non-refundable.

Indian PCC processing Time in India

Indian police clearance certificate is issued the same day (1 day)  on your visit to Indian passport office if there is no need for police verification.

If police verification is required, then it may take up-to 1 month. Indian PCC is issued after physical police visit to your address and a positive report.

Is Police Verification Required for PCC?

Police verification is required if your current residence address is different than what is written in your current valid passport.

  1. If your first passport was issued on 1 Jan, 2005 and you apply for certificate in 2012.

    You are currently residing at the same address as in current passport, then you are issued the PCC on the same day of appointment in passport office, without any new police verification.

  2. If your first passport was issued on 1 Jan, 2005 and was renewed on 1 Jan, 2015 with the same Indian address, then applying PCC any time until 31 Dec 2017 will not trigger any new Police verification.

    If you apply for PCC anytime after 1 Jan, 2018, there will be a physical police verification required, even if you have been staying at the same address.

    Police verification is valid for a period of 13 years, after which, a new one is required.

    Hello all ,
    I applied for PCC on 19 th feb 2020 and got police clearance and police did show me on tablet , that he has processed the clearance on 20 February 2020. But still haven’t received any SMS or email regarding PCC readiness. Can someone give me an idea, how long generally it takes after police clears your documents physically?

    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 18 Feb, 20 at 4:02 pm

      There is no validity mentioned on PCC. It depends on how long USA immigration considers it valid. Usually, it is 6 -12 months.

    We have applied for residence permit for Canada. Last date for submission of PCC is 4/02/2020 in Canada immigration department. We applied for PCC on 16/01/2020. Pl guide hoe to get earlier PCC from police commissioner office or SP office ahmedabad.
    Will it affect PR confirmation from canada immigration department if PCC process is delayed.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 31 Jan, 20 at 4:25 pm

      PCC is issued by passport office and not police commissioner office.
      You can ask for time from Canada immigration officer by saying that Indian passport office is taking time to issue it.

      Where did you apply the PCC?

    Hi Anil,

    I have got a job offer from Australia and I am about to start my VISA process. Immigration agent from Australia has requested many documents and among them one is PCC. I am not sure if this a problem or not but this is where I need your advice. I got my passport issued in 2014 from Delhi. I was staying with my parents that time and now they moved to Pune last year. So I had a house rented under my name last year which I vacated in Aug 2019. Since I vacated my rented house I am travelling for work outside India and back in December end and then move to Australia in Feb.

    My office is in Gurgaon, I am working overseas on a project and I do not have a current address in delhi.

    So can I use my parent’s pune address as current address in PCC form and get PCC done in Delhi passport office since passport is issued from Delhi office. Please let me know if this is a right approach or happy to hear from you.

    Thanks,
    Shekhar

    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 4 Aug, 19 at 9:12 am

      You need the current address proof and most probably a police verification will be done at your new address.

      Re-issue of passport is not required.

    Hlo… My question is regarding PCC only but but different as I mentioned in my file 2007-2013 stay at Ldh and after that in my hometown (permanent address) and passport was made in 2015 so now to prove my PCC, I am told to get it done separately from Ludhiana also as my Passport was not created then so my lawyer says that only PCC of passport will not serve ..I believe passport is made after verification since birth so it should serve ..Do you also say that since passport was created after my stay at Ludhiana so I have to get PCC from Ludhiana also ??


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 18 Jul, 19 at 7:26 pm

      I do not know about your requirement. If passport office is not issuing the PCC for your stay in Ludhiana, then you have to follow what they are seeing.


      • N S23-5
        N S23-5 20 Jul, 19 at 8:51 pm

    Hi,

    Me and my partner are going to apply for my partner visa offshore from India to Aus. I need to apply for Indian PCC as a requirement however, my passport address is of Punjab while I will be staying at my partner’s residence which is in Gujarat after marriage.

    In this case, is it necessary to reissue new passport with my spouse’s name and address on it ?

    Or can I get an Aadhaar card made in Gujarat with the current address showing of my spouse’s address ? As a proof of address to provide for PCC.

    As Punjab is a long way for me to travel and get my pcc get done from there.

    Really confused.

    Thank you!


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 27 Jun, 19 at 9:46 am

      If you want to apply PCC with new address, passport office will ask for police verification at your address in Gujarat.

        Jd 27 Jun, 19 at 10:24 am

        Hi,

        Thanks for the quick response!

        How long does it take for police verification any idea?

        Also does it mean I won’t have to reissue a new passport with my spouse’s name on it? Cos my current passport shows single status and different address I’m not sure if they require new passport for issuing PCC with a new address. I’ve only read some people discussing about it on other forum that’s why I was a little bit concerned.

        Thanks again!

    My Permanent Address is Bhopal, and I stay in Bangalore for work. Now I applied for PCC from BHOPAL PSK with my permanent address as my current address. But I have only passport and driving license with the permanent address. My Question: What document for address proof could I submit now? Thanks in advance.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 21 Jun, 19 at 8:07 am

      You will probably have to go through police verification as your current address has changed.

      You need the current address proof.

      Check the list above.


      • Rahul
        Rahul 23 Jun, 19 at 1:12 am

        May be I confused you with my question. Let me rephrase.
        In the PCC application I have used my Passport address as my current and present address. And as I said earlier other than Passport I don’t have any other document which shows this address. As all other documents have Bangalore address but no where I have mentioned Bangalore address. So now – any other supporting document will be required?
        Thanks in advance,
        Rahul

            Hi Anil,
            In continuation to Rahul’s question, my passport address is my partner’s residence and this is my current address. My partner’s name is registered in my passport.
            But I do not have any other address proof to corroborate the passport address. My partner has all their address proofs corroborating this address.
            Do I need to update my aadhar or have any other address proof to show the passport address as my current address?


            • Anil Gupta
              Anil Gupta 3 Aug, 19 at 10:28 am

              You must have given some address proof at the time of creating the passport? Isn’t it?

              What is that address proof. It should work now as well.


              • RSSP
                RSSP 3 Aug, 19 at 2:23 pm

                • Anil Gupta
                  Anil Gupta 3 Aug, 19 at 2:37 pm

                  You can check as the PCC is issued by same passport office who gave you the passport in first place.

                  If they accepted your marriage certificate earlier as address proof, they should be able to accept it now too.

      No documents need to be uploaded anywhere for Indian PCC. You have to send the application to Indian embassy by postal mail.

    Hi
    This Rajandeep. I applied offshore permanent migration for Australia from India. I am Indian citizen. How many days it will take to get PCC in India? Other question is …like in Australia , VFS global collects the original passport and there is a stamp of PCC on passport as well. Did they collect original passport in India as well and get it stamped or not?

      Please read the article above for answers.

      I do not know if passport office stamps Indian passport for PCC issuance.
      The don’t do it in USA.

    Hello Anil,

    Can I apply PCC from India rather than applying it from Indian Embassy in USA? Does the CIC accept it that way?

    I intend to apply for visa under subclass 189 or 190. Shall I
    arrange PCC before submitting visa application or wait for a CO to tell
    me to submit it? The immi websites tells to get PCC after receiving
    invitation but before applying for visa but all consultants say to get
    it after applying for visa.

      My suggestion is to apply Indian PCC based on how many points you have and the job’s ANZSCO code.
      If you are confident that you will receive invite within next 1-7 months, you should apply for PCC right away as it is only valid for 12 months.

        Thank you Anil for quick response. If I understood correctly, you are suggesting to apply for PCC after confirming points in Skillselect.
        I am planning to get it after getting the invitation to apply but before paying for visa fee. There is a 60 days time frame available there. But my confusion is whether Passport office will accept my application because the instructions on PCC website say that I also need to provide an evidence that I have applied for permanent visa while applying for PCC.

        Can I apply for PCC by showing visa invitation as a proof?

          There is no such requirement of giving proof of applying visa or anything else.
          You can simply just request for Indian PCC online on Indian passport website for whatever reason you may need it.

            Hello, can somebody please help me?

            I am living in Canada right now but Indian citizen. I am applying for pcc from Canada. In 5th page? It asked for permanent address which was same as passport address so it was fine. But under that, it is asking for present address of domicile country so I am not getting it. Should I write my India’s address or Canada’s address because I am living in Canada? Can somebody please help what address should I write in current address of domicile country?

            Thank you very much.
