Jalandhar: 350 Indians who returned from strife-torn Libya on 'emergency slips' have been issued passport, an official said on Thursday.

Around 590 people had applied for a new passport and approximately 350 people either have been issued passports or are in the process of allotment, Regional Passport Officer Parneet Singh said.

"We held a special court and have either issued passport to 200-odd people or given an approval for issuance. In around 40 cases people have not been issued since their papers were not complete," Singh said.

After full documentation, they would also be issued the passports.

Indians have been issued passport without being charged for the airfare from Libya to India on the External Affairs Ministry's order, he added.
