In May 2014 my colleague (non-India passport holder) living in Australia asked his friend in India to ask the local Indian authorities if he could apply for a Police clearance on his behalf (as has been done without problems for his Taiwan police clearance). The friend was told that my colleague must return to India and apply in person. My colleague then called the local authorities in India and asked if his friend could apply on his behalf. My colleague was again told that he must return to India and apply in person. My colleague has an India Police Clearance which was issued 18/12/12. Since that time he has only returned to India once for 1 month. He has provided this information with his 186 application. If Immigration will not accept the 18/12/12 PCC, he will beg.... My impression from the vfs website is that it's extremely unlikely that a non-Indian passport holder will be able to get a PCC through vfs. Seems the local authorities in India have their rules to follow...

Unhappy Indian PCC application procedure= Nightmare!

Sorry for barging in like this, just wanted to say that you are not alone in this complicated procedure. Not sure if this will make you feel any better but getting a PCC for Indian passport holders is just as much of a pain in the behind as it is for the non citizens. Every office has its own rules and their own document checklist

I need to apply for a PCC (Indian passport holder) for my partner visa application as the one that I provided (issued by VFS India in Australia, Brisbane) at the time of application last July expired and the case officer requested for a new one to finalize my file.
My passport office told me to get my passport re-issued to update my address (yes, Indian passport have address column that makes our life a living hell every time we move) and to add my husband's name

So I had to surrender my perfectly fine passport which had 7 years on it to apply for re-issue which will allow me to apply for the PCC with updated information. FML!! Been a nightmare, submitted my re-issue application on July 16, 2014 and till now there is no sign of the passport. Been waiting for 13 months for this visa...arrrghhh

Don't know when this hellish experience will end.
Good Luck to you!

Kind Regards,

Does anyone know where to get the Personal Particulars form from the VFS website that is mentioned in the checklist for an India PCC.
Thanks very much
