District 2-13 Office

District 2 encompasses many diverse neighborhoods in Manhattan including the East Village, Flatiron, Gramercy Park, Rose Hill, Kips Bay, Murray Hill and Lower East Side. The district has a diverse population of potential voters and is very politically active.

The district’s staff – from offices in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, PA; Lanham, MD; Glen Allen, VA; and Charleston, WV – are dedicated to fighting for working families.

About Us

District 2 is comprised of the neighborhoods in and around San Francisco’s Marina, Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, Cathedral Hill, Laurel Village and North of the Panhandle (NOPA). These communities have strong and active neighborhood organizations, historic homes and high numbers of stable families. Supervisor Stefani works to ensure that these areas are safe, that our neighborhood small businesses thrive and that good governance is in place.

District 2 also has one of the highest percentages of white, affluent families in the city — a constituency that is likely to fight hard to preserve access to some of the most sought-after schools in the system. Many parents in the district pay top dollar for homes that are zoned to those schools, and have shown a great deal of patience over changes in school admissions policies over the years. But they may be ready to move on if the system can’t get its act together.

Office Locations

District 2 serves 27 East Central Georgia counties. Four of the counties in the district are included in the top ten largest counties in the state: Burke, Laurens, Emanuel and Washington. The district’s northern and northwest boundaries are adjacent to District 1’s boundary and its southern and southwestern boundary is on the Atlantic Ocean. The district includes the towns of Merritt Island, Cocoa, Rockledge and Cape Canaveral. Notable locations in the district include Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach, Banana River and Sykes Creek. The district is home to many businesses and communities which support the local economy, including: aerospace, tourism and recreation. The district also includes a number of military facilities.

Regional Passport Office in Kolkata serves 20 districts of West Bengal and offers passport services including the Tatkaal scheme.

Regional Passport Office in Kolkata

The regional passport office kolkata is located on Brabourne road and serves twenty districts of West Bengal. Known as the City of Joy, Kolkata has a rich artistic and literary heritage. Individuals from the city often travel abroad to export their products or seek higher education.

There are many differences between an RPO and a Passport Seva Kendra. These differences include the following:


The Regional Passport Office (RPO) in Kolkata is located on Brabourne Road. The office serves the residents of twenty districts of West Bengal, namely Alipurduar, Howrah, Hooghly, 24-Paraganas (N), 24 Parganas (S), Nadia, Birbhum, Bardhaman Rural, Bankura, Burdwan, Purulia, Maldah, Murshidabad, Jalpaiguri, Darjeeling, Cooch Behar, Dinajpur (N), Dinajpur (E), and Medinipur (W) as well as 4 districts of Tripura, namely Dhalai, North Tripura, South Tripura, and West Sikkim.

The office also houses the Passport Seva Kendra, which handles passport applications from different parts of India. This service is provided by the Ministry of External Affairs. These offices are open to the public between 10 am and 1.30 pm.

Applicants must pay the required fee before visiting a PSK for passport services. The passport fees vary according to the applicant’s age and type of application. In addition, an extra Tatkaal charge is levied if the applicant needs to get a passport in urgent circumstances. In such cases, the applicant must submit proof of urgency and present it to the passport officer along with the other necessary documents.


If you need to get a passport, the regional passport office in Kolkata is the place to go. The official timings are from 10 am to 1.30 pm. It takes between seven and fourteen days to process the application, if all required documents are submitted. The office also offers the Tatkaal scheme, which allows citizens to obtain a passport faster.

The office is located on Brabourne Road. It serves twenty-four districts in West Bengal, including Alipurduar, Bankura, Bardhaman Rural, Birbhum, Darjeeling, Cooch Behar, Dhalai, Howrah, Hooghly, Howrah North, Howrah South, Jalpaiguri, Malda, Nadia, Murshidabad, Purulia, Kolkata, Siliguri, South 24 Parganas, and East Dinajpur.

Before applying, make sure that your name and date of birth are correct on all your documents. A single mismatch could result in delays and even cancellation of your application. Also, ensure that the address on your proof of residence matches the address in your passport application. You can find this information by logging into the Passport Seva online portal.

Tatkaal scheme

If you are looking for a passport in a hurry, the Tatkaal scheme is the option for you. This unique application process allows you to obtain a passport in three working days without the need for police verification. The process is available at select Passport Seva Kendras and requires certain documents.

Applicants must submit all the required documents and complete all the necessary forms. Once all the paperwork is in order, they can book an appointment at a PSK. It is important that the appointment is made before the deadline. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your application.

Applicants can choose between two appointment quotas, Normal and Tatkal, when booking their appointments. However, the fee is the same regardless of the quota chosen. This is a measure to prevent misuse and trivialisation of the scheme. The passport department has also requested that applicants do not apply for the Tatkaal scheme unless they have a genuine need.


Whether you are looking to get a new passport for yourself or your family, Kolkata is the place to go. Known as the ‘City of Joy’, it is one of the main hubs for international travel and business. Here are some things you should know about the region’s passport offices and services:

Regional Passport Offices (RPOs) are regional centres that handle various aspects of passport issuance. They also look after appeals. Passport Seva Kendras (PSKs) are streamlined passport offices that work on society’s front end. They handle everything from filing applications to police verifications.

Located on Brabourne Road, the Kolkata RPO covers 20 districts of West Bengal including Alipurduar, Hooghly, Howrah, 24 Paraganas North and South, Nadia, Birbhum, Bankura, Purulia, Darjeeling and Jalpaiguri. It also handles the five districts of Sikkim – Dhalai, East Sikkim, Central Sikkim and North-eastern Hill Council. The new RPO, Ashish Middha, has expressed a desire for further streamlining and augmenting public service.

Veterans Appeals Process and Resource Management Improvement

VBA Regional Office 283


VA’s appeals process provides veterans with an opportunity to challenge a decision made by the AOJ or the Board. However, much of the work that occurs between an AOJ’s initial decision and the Board’s disposition of the appeal is performed by VBA and requires the same pool of resources as those needed to process initial claims.

VBA has improved its ability to identify errors in the initiation of an appeal by requiring all appeals to be initiated on a standard form. This change will reduce the time AOJ personnel spend identifying and clarifying the scope of an appeal and the reason for disagreement with a prior AOJ decision.

GAO survey data indicate that DROs could greatly or moderately improve their effectiveness at managing appeals if their responsibilities were limited to this task.
