Q.1123 Post office issued ID card in India . . .

Question: Sir this refers to the information published in NRI information regarding the process of obtaining postal ID card. I am a student, in need of an address proof. according to the procedure outlined in your site, i presented my application at the post office, only to be refused as I did not have an address proof. Why do I need a postal ID card if I have an address proof in the first place. What should I do now. Thankyou, yours sincerely Answer: You are perhaps referring to an article on NRI Information titled Proof of Address Card in India: http://nriinformation.com/articles/proof_address.htm The post office ID card helps individuals show proof of address. The Post office before they can issue such ID card need to verify the applicants address and this must be provided in the application form. The article mentions that the post office will require form filled in with the applicant’s current address. After the form is submitted and fee paid, a postman will verify the address provided on the form. Following the verification, the application form is sent to the district head office for further processing. This process can take about eight weeks to complete. If the post office clerk refused to accept your application perhaps you should speak to someone in charge of the post office to ascertain if address verification is not being done now by the post office. In such a case applying for Post Office proof of address indeed makes no sense.
