Impact Your World
Exposing terrible functioning of Indian Consulate in U.S.A
I would really appreciate it if CNN could investigate and report the issues as they exist and may be Some higher authority from India or USA can step in and improve the system.
I was told my passport renewal could take anywhere from 6 months to a year or more. No definite time and to them it doesn't matter.
I can post some complaints forums here but due to the word limitation I will suggest to just google INDIAN CONSULATE COMPLAINTS and I am sure you can find unlimited complaints against all office but mostly for the Houston Office.
I even offered to appear in person since I live in florida but I was told there is no assurance that I will be issued a passport if I make the 13 hour drive or spend $500 in travelling.
I have filed complaints online but nothing seems to be improving. They make it feel like they are doing us a favor by processing the applications.
Please contact me if you can follow up on this story and I will be happy to provide all the detailed info.
