Tokens will not be issued from the Passport Office here on Friday for the proposed passport mela to be held at Passport Seva Kendra on Saturday.

Passport Officer K. Abdul Rasheed said that maximum capacity tokens were issued on Thursday for the mela. The passport mela is being held to clear the huge backlog of passport applications. A large number of people who have registered online have been waiting for their turn to complete the application formalities. Mr. Rasheed said that the special mela on Saturday would help clear the backlog to a good extent.
