Went to get my passport renewed. Actually took a half day off from work for this. The guy manning the counter left early!! I barked to just let off steam and felt foolish since it was to no avail anyway. The place is smelly, hot and crowded and it is a wonder since the website led me to expect otherwise. Also I had worked on getting all the docs- ration card, marriage certificate, declarations etc etc - everythign was in order. And also my colleagues got it with no effort... Maybe the passport guys realised that I was not going any place anyway in a hurry...koi laut aa de mujhe beetay huay din....at least on the foreign travel front
On the contrary the experience at the BSNL office to transfer a phone line to the new house was brilliant- wonderfully clean and cool office with very friendly & efficient staff.
All roads lead to OMR- there are three toll plazas being set up - one in Perungugi, one en route from the Pallikarnai Medavakkam junction and one from the ECR road side
I guess residents in the area would get a monthly pass or an ID or something....I wonder if my office will reimburse or needs to get a pass for the employees with cars or we would get a subsidised pass .
