Ok ok we were disappointed that we weren’t getting the new slick service promised by the minister. BUT we do have two other services on our side:
The police service are with us and on the job. They might be a bit traditional BUT we’ll have no worries
Thankfully, we’ve also got the SMS service also ‘on our side’ otherwise it might be confusing and not very fast.
So its happening
Manj has met the Policeman, neighbours sign to say Manjula is who she says she is and lives here. Result!
Our SMS arrives on Stephen’s trusty phone (it even gets a chortle from our friends in Mysore!)
they come fast fast and furious, usually in the middle of the night…

called at Police Commissioner, report has gone to the RPO, I called, they received it. OK the final bit did take ten days but it’s sorted. The Police service has had to deal with 800 verification reports just for passports. It must take a heavy toll.
the SMS service has now gone quiet
