    It generally took not too much time depending on Passport officers decision whether to resend the Police verification or not. If police verification is requested in your case then it will take an indefinite amount of time but if you are lucky then you can get this in 15-20 days without police verification for normal. The appointment must be taken online and then need to be present on the office with prescribed documents and original passport.
