I am in the process of getting it right now.

1. Applied for GOES in the US and paid the $100 fee.
2. Got an email from the Indian passport office that night providing me the GES number
3. Registered on the Indian passport website with the GES number and paid INR 500 and scheduled an appointment (you can only schedule up to 2 weeks ahead)
4. Went to the passport office yesterday (appointment that you took)and completed the verification
5. Got an email today morning about pending police verification (because the address on my passport is different)
6. Once that's done, they will and the report back to GOES
7. GOES will ask me to come For an Interview

Similar case with me, you have to give your indian residence address (new one where you live) and provide an address proof for that address. There would be police verification done on the address you provide and not the one you have on your passport.

This is also mentioned in the appointment letter that you get (in the documents required section)

Well I realized I didn't answer your question: you will select the PSK, in the city you give as your current address and not the one in the passport

I have it. Got it right away. I'm not sure what you mean by process back home

Are you an Indian citizen? The website says that one has to get verified by Indian passport services as Step 2 of the process. Maybe I am just understanding it wrong.

OP - you're right. You have to go to India for step 2, pain in the butt process

Was step #4 in India?

Yes, currently there's no process for us to do it in the US

Thanks EY1. Very helpful.

EY1, was your address on the passport in the city you went to for your PSK appointment? My address is an address that I will never ever go to (got my passport in Bangalore, no reason to go back there), so thinking if this police verification can ever be done
