thanks ..my old passport address was in a different state altogether so want to avoid this hassle.
For your current address you have to put your US address, for address in India you give any address that i mentioned.
thank you very much for the information ...shall do it.
I renewed my Indian Passport recently with USA address. Even if you say you have no Indian address, police verification at the address in the passport will be done as there is a change of address. In my case, I am no more at that address, so I gave the address of my daughter. The police verification says I used to live at that address but they could not meet me, which is not a clear report. That is in spite of the fact that my daughter explained everything to them.
The Counsellor says my passport is good for travel however I need a clear police verification, whatever that means.
Because of Covid, travel is anyway not advised unless very urgent but I am not sure what If I travel to India with a passport that has no clear police verification. Strange are the ways. They could have easily done police verification at my USA address.
yes exactly this i expected that if i give a USA address verification would occur here in the USA but looks like its not the case. thank you . i would give my family address in india for verification.
This is how the Indian government creates dumb laws, if you already hold a passport why do they need verification?
The problem is between the passport office and the police. Police is supposed to send report within a specified time which was not happening in most cases. So they decided to send the passport pending police verification as they do not want to be seen as the one delaying the passport. I received my passport within as week of application. Police verification would take time as it was to be done in India. It was done on time but the report is qualified. They say I can travel however should arrange to get a clear report whatever that means.
Funny. No one is telling me what if I am stuck in India or on the way?
When a person first applies for the passport they can do all the verification, buy why the hell do you want verify for renewal ???
Normally police verification is not done if the renewal is without change of address. If thee si change of address, verification is must.
