Bhubaneswar, June 18 (IANS) Three more Post Office Passport Seva Kendras (POPSKs) will come up in Odisha, it was announced on Sunday.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj told Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who hails from the state, in a letter that her ministry has decided to open three more POPSKs in Odisha.

"We have decided to open Post Office Passport Seva Kendras in Balasore, Berhampur and Bhawanipatna in the second phase of this scheme," she said.

Earlier in May this year, Pradhan had requested the Centre to open seven more Passport Sewa Kendras in Odisha.

Sushma Swaraj, on Saturday, announced opening of 149 new POPSKs across the country in the scheme's second phase.
