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.
