Passport renewal via HCI London no passport received

NK (name changed) asked following question via contact form. Instead of replying her directly I decided to post it here so that everyone can be benefited.

Hi,
I just found this blog and thought wow it is not only me that has had a problem with the hci london. I applied for a renewal on the 15th of June 2012 and now I am on the 15th of October it has been a full 4 months with much attempts to contact the Hci london via phone and email I have had no luck whatsoever and now am really worried are they even allowed to do this. I want to make them pay for all the hassle they have put me through as this is not fair and going through your web page I see many other people have had somewhat similar experiences. I wanted to travel in August but had to cancel as no passport. I don’t know who I can complain to as no one is willing to do something. I hope that you have some degree of a solution and maybe I will get my passport back. I am willing to go to the news just to shame them and if other people are still in the same situation maybe we could all take them on together. Please help very stressed and worried uk resident with stay since 1986 only mistake did’t change my passport to a UK one.

Regards

NK

Welcome to the world of misery, pain and trauma. I wish you could have stumbled upon this blog before you applied for passport renewal. At least you would have known what steps you have to take when you fall into the bottomless ditch.

I don’t know who I can complain to as no one is willing to do something.

You can’t complain to anyone. No one will listen. HCI is a donkey stable full with deaf, mute and dumb chaprasis, babus and elite IAS servants. And this donkey stable is ruled by one of the most corrupt donkey in New Delhi who goes by the name of CM Krishna. Complain wouldn’t work so forget about it.

I am willing to go to the news just to shame them and if other people are still in the same situation maybe we could all take them on together.

You can try to do whatever you can do to vent out your frustration. Good luck with this. Indians never unite or else we would have had many revolutions. If there was sense of unity in Indians then we would have ended corruption long time ago. Good luck with this too if you can unite them.

I hope that you have some degree of a solution and maybe I will get my passport back.

I wish you could have read all of my posts, I’ve already provided solution many times to many people who have requested me to help them out.

The solution is that you need to send RTI to HCI London. They will reply within 48 hours with the exact problem and then you can take further course of action from there.

Read this post on how to send RTI to HCI London.

Good luck and hope your problem will be solved.

Please help very stressed and worried uk resident with stay since 1986 only mistake did’t change my passport to a UK one.

May be you were trying to be too patriotic ;) You better get UK passport.
