Every individual has an identity. The irony of the situation is that this identity needs a documentary proof. Another interesting fact is that no all documentary proof regarding an individual’s identity is valid in all circumstances and under all situation and place. The documentary identity proof should be commensurate with the place the individual is presently staying. Ideally this should be the place that individual belongs to or the residence, permanent or present, of the individual. But what happens when the individual goes for a tourism expedition to some other foreign locality or nationality? This individual surely requires a documentary evidence of his identity commensurate with the place he or she is visiting.
While an individual plans to visit India, he or she might face the same situation. The individual might not receive his money order or might not receive his insured and registered articles if he or she does not possess a valid documentary proof of his identity. The problem further aggravates in case the individual is continuously moving from one place to another without settling anywhere since he or she is on a visit to the country and wishes to visit as many places as possible.
What can be the probable solution to this complex issue and situation? Postal ID card or Postal Identity Card issued by Postal Services Department of India is an all inclusive solution to this complex issue.
A Postal ID card or a Postal Identity Card is a documentary proof of identity of an individual, especially a tourist, issued as per the guidelines mentioned under clause 63 of the Post Office Guide-Part I. This card is issued in order to help
This card is issued to such above mentioned individuals if the individual is experiencing a difficulty in establishing his or her identity, especially with reference to postal transactions such as receiving money orders or receiving registered parcels or insured products.
The Postal ID card can be obtained by following a simple procedure and submitting certain mandatory documents at the head post office of the locality. One important requirement in order to obtain a postal ID card is the people (especially literate, reputed, respected, and well known residents of the locality who are well recognized preferably by the post master of the locality as well) who can vouch for the individual’s identity.
The Postal ID card contains a complete description of the holder or the individual who has applied for such card along with his/her valid signature and photograph. Such a card is valid for a period of three years starting from the date of issue of such a card, beyond which the individual need to make a fresh application for a new card.
The Postal ID Card is a proof of address card. This proof of address card can also be used as a proof of identity by any individual who is either visiting India as a tourist, as a student, or a corporate professional on a business trip, or any other member who supposedly does not possess any proof of address and identity to collect postal deliveries such money orders or registered parcels and insured products. This is one of the major uses of getting a Postal ID card. Some other benefits and uses include application for a gas connection, opening up a bank account, application for a mobile or/and internet connection, and applying for a passport.
The application procedure for a Postal ID card is quite simple and easy. An individual can download the application form from indiapost. A duly filled in form with correct information needs to be submitted by the individual along with an application fee of INR10/- at the head post office of the locality. While submitting the filled in application, an amount of INR250/- also needs to be paid for processing the application and get the card. If the applicant wants a card under the Tatkal scheme, he or she needs to pay INR600/-. Under the Tatkal scheme, the card would be issued within five working days from the date of application. For a normal application, the Postal ID card might take up to two months.
After receiving the application for Postal ID card, the post office then conducts due diligence and requisite verification of the information. Only after all mandatory checks and verification, the Postal ID card is issued. This card is an attractive plastic card containing the most important information such as address, date of birth, contact number, and the blood group of the individual carrying the card.
The Postal ID card can be easily applied for merely by filling up an online application form at indiapost. By following the easy steps mentioned at the website and depositing the requisite documents and processing fees, any individual can easily obtain the Postal ID card which acts both as an identity proof and address proof.
