NEW PASSPORT RULES

The Ministry of External Affairs just recently announced a new set of rules for applying for a passport. And we’ve summarized some of the major changes that these new rules have bought in.

  • DOCUMENTATION FOR PROOF OF BIRTH

As per the earlier rules, submitting a birth certificate was compulsory for all applicants born on/after 26th January 1989. But the new rules have bought in a relaxation in this regards. Now, any of the following documents containing the DOB of the applicant will suffice:



  • Birth Certificate (BC) issued by the Registrar of births and deaths or the Municipal Corporation or any other prescribed authority whosoever has been empowered under the Registration of Birth & Deaths Act, 1969 to register the birth of a child born in India
  • Transfer/school leaving/matriculation certificate issued by the school last attended/recognized educational board
  • PAN card
  • Aadhar card/E-aadhar
  • Copy of the extract of the service record of the applicant (only in respect of Government servants) or the pay pension order (in respect of retired government servants), duly attested/certified by the officer/in-charge of the administration of the concerned ministry/department of the applicant
  • Driving license
  • Election Photo Identity Card (EPIC) issued by the Election Commission of India
  • Policy bond issued by the public life insurance corporations/companies

 




  • DETAILS OF PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIAN:

In a welcome move, the new passport rules has done away with the mandate requiring names of both parents at the time of application. An applicant now only needs to provide the name of either one of the parents or the legal guardian. This makes it easier for children with single parents or orphans to apply for a passport. Provisions have also been made for spiritually oriented people (Sadhus/Sanyasis) who can now mention the name of their spiritual leader instead of their biological parents.

 

  • ANNEXES

The total number of annexes has been bought down from 15 to 9. Annexes A, C, D, E, J, and K have been removed and some of them have also been merged. Lesser annexes means less trouble for you to collate documentation.

 



  • ATTESTATION

While all annexes needed attestation from a Notary/Executive Magistrate/First Class Judicial Magistrate previously, henceforth all these annexes can now be in the form of a self-declaration from the applicant on plain paper. This will spare you all the running around for attestation that you would have had to do previously.

 

  • MARRIED/DIVORCED PERSONS:

The need for a marriage certificate has been discontinued (along with annexure K). Also, in case of a divorce the applicant will not be required to provide the name of their spouse. This is another interesting change that has been made taking into consideration changing societal norms.

 




  • WORK RELATED URGENT PASSPORTS:
    For urgent passports, if a government employee is unable to procure the NOC (no objection certificate) or identity certificate from their employers, they can submit a self-declaration stating that they have given a prior intimation letter to their employer informing that they are applying for an ordinary passport to a passport issuing authority.

To view the press release from the Ministry of External Affairs regarding the new passport rules, you can visit their website which has the complete details.

Overall, this move is set to make the application process easier and hassle-free for everyone. A welcome move, we say!

So don’t use your lack of passport as an excuse not to travel anymore. Apply for one now, and get going. Don’t forget to visit our website to get insured before you leave on your next adventure!

          • Parshuram Marathe July 17, 201710:19 am

            All passports can be renewed 6 months before the date of expiry. If you renew your passport when it is valid the document requirement is very less. Less than applying for a new passport. Normally a renewal passport will come within 10 days to your residential address. Thanks to this new government. All the old valid or expired visas will be in the old passport which will also be returned to you. If you have a valid visa in the old passport you should carry that passport with you also when you are travelling abroad.

          • Shripati July 17, 201711:25 am

            You can apply 6 months prior to your passport expiry. My reneval was done in 8 days. Your old passport will be cancelled after receipt of acknowledgement.

          Is it sufficient or does he/she need any more for DOB.

Let such measures follow for the renewal of the passport also. Sr. Citizens should ne given more relaxation for issue and renewal of Passport . This police verification should be done away with. This will avoid currupt practices.

      Changes done were seriously required and were big hassle to meet the requirements. Namely.
      1. marriage certificate
      2. Parents name.
      3. DOB

      All changes are welcomed.

      Suggestions

      Police police verifications needs to be matured as they ask for same set of documents which are submitted for passport.

      Instead they should check police record and call for doubtful cases for verification.

      Thanks

      In application for Passport, the dropdown provides for Reissue of Passport and in dropdown for reason, you have Exhaustion of pages as an option. Choose both and make an application as you do for new passport. You will not be required to provide all documents, old passport is adequate. Depending of need for police verification, the processing time is between 10 to 24 days. Tatkal option is possible only if police verification is on record, else you can apply as Normal applicant. I was forced to convert from Tatkal to Normal and i am still guessing how was my earlier passport issued if police verification was not complete? Hope this helps

    Police verification and LIU Verification of the individual before issue of passport leads to corruption as police man visits at the address of the individual, requiring passport and extract money and if denied haress individual and his family members.
    Rules should be made in such a way so that this practice can be stopped

    In the Post offices, it is the worst. I stay in a small District place. Here you have to take rounds for a week or 10 days, just to take the application form than the harassment starts. After trying for 2 months, I have given up the Idea to have a Pass port.

      Renewal of passport can be applied (1) here in India if its validity period is less than 12 months means the expiry date is within next 12 months and on receipt of new passport the NEW PASSPORT number can be intimated to the visa grant authority (2) Renewal of passport can be applied through Indian High Commission/Embassy in Germany after reaching there and new passport the NEW PASSPORT number can be intimated to the visa grant authority. Please contact your visa consultant for more clarification on the subject, you are not required to be worried about renewal of passport, concentrate on your Mission No 1,

    It is good! The Aadhar Card is containing the residential address, date of birth, photo ID like information!
    This is now linked with PAN / Bank account and Mobile phone also!

    So, the Passport Form is to be more easy with only single page and supporting documents is to be only the Aadhar Card. I could not understand about the Police verification System is for What?

    Secondly, the Government is to hear my genuine plea about the Name problem and this is also to be taken in to account to AVOID unnecessary problem while Writing / mentioning the SOUTH INDIAN NAMES!

    What I say is, the Naming Style of south and north practice is to be allowed as per their own state’s procedures and as per the Documents of Educational Institutions they are having.

    In south there is no First-Middle- Last name practice! For Example my Name is V. RANGANATHAN, which could not be spited. V is the First letter of my father’s name. Ranganathan is my full name and all my Educational Documents will show my name as V.RANGANATHAN.

    At least the South Indian Politicians and Parliament Members should know the fact and take necessary action to do the needful and I humbly request our Govt. as well as our Law makers in this regard.

    In my opinion,It is still very difficult to obtain passport. Those who are having Bank account in a National Bank & also having Adhar card can be entitled to get passport. Bank already verified their KYC to continue their account. But till now there are lot of problem like police verification birth certificate etc are required. Govt is saying that Adhar Card is sufficient for a citizen then what is need for other record. Please issue as per these record so that people may move from one country to another country easily.

    I live in Brisbane, Australia, for the past about 9 years, on Bridging visa granted upto 2020, and my passport expires in March 2018, police verification on records, how much time will it take to get the renewed passport, with the introduction of two language passports.

    POLICE verification an assured source of income for police. Police verification is a legacy of British who had to do Police verification to control freedom fighters .UNFORTUNATELY NEHRU continued to keep out RSS sympathizers .There is no need to do police verification in every case ,the list should be reduced .Following cases does not need it-RENEWAL OF PASSPORT,GOVERNMENT SERVANTS,MINORS & EMPLOYEES OF REPUTED FIRMS. In fact police verification should be done without contact with person who has asked for PP. Only in doubtful case the individual should be called on by senior officer & informed grounds for denial of PP in writing. GOVERNMENT is wasting man power & money to do police verification which has been turned into source of income for police .Carry out study & reduce list to very few.

There is no need to do it in all cases .The list should be revue .Following do not need it-1.Renewal of PP-2. Government servants & their dependents, 3- Employees & THEIR DEPENDENTS .IN FACT THERE SHOULD BE NO CONTACT WITH PERSON ASKING FOR PP. Inquiry should be done without contact as police is using this to make money .I renewed my PP 4 time & each time had to give Rs 1000/- as Bakshis or he wont leave . POLICE VERIFICATION IS WASTE OF MAN POWER, MONEY & TIME. Review it as it is the main cause of delay in issue of PP

      I fully endorse views of Brother Ashok Deshpande. Police Verification is pure waste of manpower, time, money, and energy and on top of that harassment and bribe. It shud be applied only in cases where the Passport Applicant has got criminal background and not otherwise. The Passport Authorities are equiped enough and they can very well verify a persons background and antecedent before issuing and passport.

    Good. Still more fine tunning is needed. Police verification after the issue of the Passport is ludicrous.

    Ministry should scrap the system of obtaining NOC from Police on every occasion, whenever a Government servant goes Abroad. This process consumes lot of time to get final NOC from the head of Office. Besides, running from pillar to post, sizeable out flow in the form bribe is wasted, if the intendee’s dwelling comes under different jurisdictions.

    Documents are checked at PP office , then where is need to check it by police .Police verification should be confined to any criminal or anti national activity without contact with applicants.In case of suspicion simile officer should info applicants in writing .This will stop corruption in police & reduce police work .

    It’s wonderful, pragmatic. I believe the authorities shall follow these changes religiously and do not insist upon the applicants to furnish documents which shall not be required henceforth. It is evident there had always been a room for improvement and dispense with unnecessary documents but authorities both PPO and Seva Kendra continued to follow the age old practices due to their adamant nature and lack of knowledge.
    We must also simplify Police Verification requirement. The most of the delays is attributed due to delay in issuing the NOC by Police. The documents are verified at more than 4 level including visit to the residence of the applicant. More than 15 to 20 documents are called for by the Police just to confirm the name and address of the applicant which also include the minors and Senior Citizens though they are exempted. Normally, Police are supposed to keep record of the locals who are convicted or wanted. Police has to simply confirm whether the applicant is one of them or otherwise and issue NOC after confirming the name , address and period of stay of the applicant.
    The applicant seeking the appointment should also be hassle free and prompt.

    where as for pass port application above all accepted.
    then why there is discrepancy in both process. one more imp thing if my residence electricity bill is on wife’s name, the same not consider as residence address proof for husband where as in case of tenant owners electricity bill is considered……..ajib rule hai……

I tried to have my son make his too but there was a lot of problems for him as we needed to submit lots of documents for change of name. marriage certificate, divorce decree etc and of course this time i was being charged 1000/- rupees less that means 6000/- for my son while i paid 7000/- for mine.

Few changes do need to come – The Type of Name of the applicant required to be written ( first middle last name etc,) should be in their own way as per the documents produced in support. Then – The Police Verification which is really harassing & money reaping to the police, it should be made easy but at the same time Criminals should not be allowed to escape, getting of fake & multiple passports should also be very strictly prevented.

    Surprisingly , a policeman from concerned police station turned up at my residence on 9th July for police verification formalities. After completion, bribe money was demanded stating that the sun is to be shared with superiors and if not paid , sending verification report could be delayed.
    Requested to look into such issues and stream line / simplify police verification procedures ,exercising stringent control , to stop extortion of money / people are not harressed & put into difficulties.

    No doubt, it is a very good information, especially when the rules have been so simplified. Additionally would have been quite useful if information given about the time period the authority should take. Also, some more info could have been done away in cases of renewal, like date of birth, identification, or even the address if no change

      have the Aadhar / PAN or School records.

    As per my earlier comment on 15/07/2017 in this page, First of all the Name problem is to be solved.

    Every passport applicant is to be instructed to have their own bank account prior to apply.

    In the Passport application form one more calm is to be added, asking the Bank details and it’s IFSC Code of the
    applicant. After get ready the Passport that should be dispatched to their respective bank.
    As soon as passport prepared the OTP may be sent to the applicant Mobile, which is to be shown to the Bank to receive the Passport.

    As per the norms KYC, PAN, AADHAR, MOBILE ARE ALL HAVING INTERLINKED ALREADY AND THE PASSPORT
    NUMBER WILL ALSO BE LINKED AUTOMATICALLY WHEN IT IS RECEIVED BY THE APPLICANT ON THE BASIS OF
    THE OTP SENT BY THE PASSPORT OFFICE.

    Present Modiji led Government under Foreign Minister, Sushma Swaraj is constantly trying to make issuance of Pass Ports hassle free & less cumbersome. Plus time limit has also been reduced for issuance of new Passport & also renewal.
    What’s now urgently required is to do away with police verification involving the applicant. It can be done internally between MEA & concerned Police Station. If any adverse police record existing then only matter be pursued with the applicant.
    Police verification is mostly farce & breeding corruptions. Hope Sushmaji will look into this matter.

    It ‘s not correct. When my wife had submitted her documents, she was asked for marriage certificate .
    It is surprising, that when she made PAN card, Aadhar card, marriage proof was not asked.
    Is it so, that passport office is not respecting these documents or has no value????

    Cabinet minister for external affairs, should clarify.

    There are still many things, which are contradictory in India.

The removal of police verification was very much welcome decision. I also want to inform that I could get the renewed passport within 4 days and actually one and half working days .I WANT TO CONGRATULATE ALL THE PERSONNEL OF THE PASSPORT OFFICE FOR THEIR BEST SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC.

    Now one thing remains that Police Verification, some measure changes should be done in that thing.
    No one can refuse that Police people making lots of money to clear the verification cases when it found in legal matter & take so many days in such cases.

    We urge external affairs minister to please think on a point noted very seriously.
