PCCs are required for various purposes. Depending upon what application you are filing, and to which country, you may need one or both types of PCCs.
Type 1: Regional Passport Office – PCC: This is a clearance that the Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) gives you, and you need to apply through the PSK office. This is issued as a stamp in your passport and an accompanying letter stating that there is nothing adverse against you in police records.
Type 2: Commissioner of Police: This is a clearance issued from the office of the Commissioner of Police, Bangalore City Police. This is to state that there is nothing adverse against you and you don’t have/had any legal issues pending against you.
