Every day hundred’s of people visit the Passport office and many of them found returning back because of not having the proper information. Even though officially year back they stopped accepting the manual application. No where it is documented and still you can download the forms (These can be submitted only at Dist. passport centers and Post offices). I would like to provide the details for those needed information on Tatkal passport.
