I want to remove my Emigration check required stamp on my Passport.

Hello Folks,

I had renewed my passport in 2015 and i did submit my 10th grade certificate to make sure my passport is not having this stamp but when i received my passport i had this ECR stamp on it. I don’t want this stamp to be a barrier for me if in case i plan to work abroad.

I too have the acknowledgement form which says i did submit my 10th grade marksheet way back in 2015 and i very well know this is their mistake not mine since all my documents were clear from my end.

How can i make sure that these people remove this stamp and don’t charge me anything for their own mistake. Is there any way out because i don’t want to pay 1.5k once again to get just a stamp removed from my passport that too for their mistake since i still have the proof which states that i did submit my ECNR document. I guess it would hardly take about 2-3 days to get this rectified right?

I know i should have fixed this issue in 2015 itself but i did not do that pensive

We even get a fresh passport for 1.5k so what’s the actual use of this then rolleyes

Awaiting your valuable suggestions.

Tagging some of my friends on DD. Please forgive me if you find the tag irrelevant to you.

@MrKool_JJ If you have submitted 10th class marksheet then ecr stamp shouldn’t be there on the passport. Kuch toh gadbad hai daya. Definitely a mistake. By the way Where were you since last 5 years? Why didn’t you rectified that back in 2015? hushed

Now you will have to re-submit your 10th class marksheet & most probably you will have to fill a new application form as stamp can’t be removed or delete. But do give a call to customer care. And yes they will charge you again.

If mistake is done by PSK ask them through RTI file grievance and see the solution if still not problem not solved then follow last option why give up so easily

in such complicated cases i filed RTI and got immediate response with the solution ask them if mistake is done by PSK what is the procedure,
but be sure is it your mistake or their mistake do you have documentary proof of PSK’s mistake?

I had the same confusion while appying for passport . I had not checked ecnr checkbox.. but while i was at psk .i told the guy to make sure ecnr category is true for me..

See ECNR checkbox is most confusing thing for someone new to applying passport .

Completely agree with you. This ECNR column is the most confusing column in the whole application process.

Can you post photo of which stamp you are talking about? BTW apply for a new passport, duplicate one, and tell them to issue the one with the new format.
in case i plan to work abroad.
Bahut aage jaoge.

I filled hundreds of passport applications there is nothing confusing in it , You should be aware of ECR and non ECR before filling passport application

Not all people know what ECNR is about, for the people who know what this is, there won’t be any confusion.

And for something very sensitive like a passport application people want to make sure they are not filling in something wrong.

Further if ECNR stamp is a positive thing, the negative abbreviation of NOT in it, creates a double negative confusion.

And this post receiving too much attention in 2 hrs , shows how many people have stumbled upon this ECNR column confusion while filling their passport application.

See that’s what i said ,,for a newbie it’s confusing cause its negatively affirmative .. they should give ecr checkbox instead of ecnr .. there was no explaining too on the site for the same..

that is not what the call centre or agents told me.

Was yours made vua RPO at Kerala or Bambai?

Call center said, contact Regional Passport Office with reason like printing mistake (she even gave the number 02226520017.. which no replied. i took two numbees of two states, but not of Kerala sad ).

So try to see if such an old case would be excused and mistake corrected.

it can be ironed out when renewing and if employer/sponser or educational institution is sensible, helpful… then not having ECNR stamp too can be taken care of with minimal issues.

Ecnr stand for emigration check not required.. essentially it means you won’t be interviewed before leaving country to restricted country (like qatar ) .
Ecr means emigration check required..

Basically ecnr is for people who are atleast matrix passed and are able to understand the risk.

So you should tick ecnr if you are literate..

Ecr protects illiterate people or workers who mostly want to go for labour work in foreign country but emigration check add a protective step ,so that if there is any scam or trap job , these people get protected


Tldr: tick ecnr checkbox if you are literate (atleast matrix pass) else do not tick *

Getting a new passport in Mumbai might take time since they get too many applications.
I haven’t received any job offer from any employer but just wanted to make sure my records are clean so that this thing won’t issue any problem if in case i get a job because i may lose my job just for this silly thing for which i don’t even have any control. Hope this clarifies smile

hain hain.. i meant you can get in touch with tge correct Regional Passport Office from where it was issued.
.
You.. i do not think are from Bambai.. but from Kerala.
Or maybe you are from Bombay but with Mallu lineage.
Anyway, emotional blackmail the printing office.
18002581800 (when i called today) was not too helpful or gave any hint about what scenarios one has. just gave the RPO number.

tell them reality or half reality.
in either case, they sounded just 20-25 years young call centre staff and when they asked how old since passport issuance and i bluffef 8-10 months (of a relative), they simply repeated that “printing mistake” reason = RPO that issued it.
They reconfirmed with me twice if education marksheet/proofs were submitted.
I said yes, my relative has the acknowledgement also.
I kept trying to know if it would require the whole loop again or what … but the call centre people simply denied to comment and kept asking me to note down RPOs numbers.

So which document no you had given to these reps while reconfirming your issue?
also you told them this happened and they told this was an error from their end.
Finally what happened how did they address this case? They simply told it’s their fault without even checking anything from their end? rolleyes

I guess you need police clearance certificate and submit it along with reissue of passport n fees.
