It was launched along with a scheme under which a person can apply for a passport from anywhere in India irrespective of the place of residence.
With the launch of the ‘mPassport Seva App’, a person now does not require access to a computer and printer to apply for a passport, the MEA had said.
The application will also benefit users as it does not require access to a computer or printer.
