For reissue passport of my wife with no changes: The document advisor says self attested copies of current passport and ECNR proof are required. But what was asked for at the PSK were: Spouse's self attested copy of passport, electricity/telephone bill to show the current address is the same as that printed in the passport.

For reissue passport of my minor daughter with no changes: The document advisor says attested copies (by both parents) of passport, Annexure H. But what was asked for at the PSK wereattested copies of both parents, electricity/telephone bill to show parent's current address.

The bottom line is: Be prepared to submit two different documents each for identity and address (as a back up) although there might be no changes. The least that one would like is get turned away and asked to come the next day.

Are you quite sure that Aadhaar is mandatory?

I had visited the Passport Seva website a couple of days ago to download the form to renew my wife's passport and it didn't appear to be mandatory. At least there was no asterisk against the Aadhaar No. to indicate that the it is mandatory to fill the field.

Procedure is pretty simple with everything (fee payment, appointments, documents advisory etc.) moved online. Staff is usually professional and helpful on-site, plus the phone helpline answers questions clearly.

My renewal was done within 2 weeks in 2015 and wife's new passport done within 10 days in 2016 (including police verification, passport itself was received on the third day in both cases).

To conclude, you'd just have to see what's the closest Passport Service Kendra (PSK), and pop in to get this done- you could also accompany children or Senior Citizens as well.
Thanks to you both. Now I'm really relaxed! I was worried based on my experience in 2011 when I had applied for reissue. It took nearly 3 months for the re-issued passport to reach me.

Default Re: Passport Renewal Procedure

A year back, I got my renewed passport even before the passport verification was done. I got my passport within 3-4 days of applying.

Now for a friend, it's been 2.5 weeks after applying & 1 week after police verification is done but the status still shows police verification pending and he hasn't got his renewed passport. Same city as me (Bombay), same PSK (Andheri) and same police station.

What's changed? Why did they start waiting for police verification before mailing your passport? Also how many days does it take for the police to inform the PSK that verification is done?

@carboy; I think the process has become faster. By the looks of it, your friend's police verification has fallen into the crack. Give it another couple of weeks.

I was just wondering, considering that everyone wouldn't be having his own house or either dad/mom's house and landlord doesn't want to allow in his house address, what happens then??

I think those applications which are supported by Aadhar are processed faster. At least you this is what is mention in the Passport Seva site. I have renewed my parents passport a few months back and took just 2 weeks. Even my daughter's fresh was issued within the same duration.

Need a small help from people here. My mother stays with me and needs to update the address in her passport to my address. She doesnt have any government document/proof of this address. Any suggestions on how to go about this?

Does your passport contains your mother's name and your current address? Then you can submit that as an address proof, it should be acceptable.

Alternatively you can apply for Aadhaar card for your mother if she does not have it already. Wait till you get the E-Aadhaar and then apply. It is a long process though.

One of the proof of address items in the instruction booklet on the PP website is this:

Name:  proof.jpg

If you can portray that your mother is staying as a tenant at your address with a valid and registered rent agreement, that might be one option that could be used. But bear in mind that police verification does take place for only address change applications too, even if it is not a fresh/reissue of PP case.

Cheers,
Vikram

She has an Aadhaar but it has another address. Even to change it in the Aadhar I would need some address proof and that is what I have been looking for

Police verification is fine because she is actually staying with me. Unfortunately we dont have a rent agreement because I too reside at the same address.

Can a joint account passbook work as an address proof?

I don't think so. That is only valid for spouse.

Senior Citizens can be issued a passport on post police verification basis if they submit copy of child's (Age greater than 18) passport, who is staying abroad (with page having parent's name) as an additional document along with their application form.
The above text is what I got from the PSK website. Though the above is a different case where the child is staying abroad but along with additional documents (phone bill, rent agreement) this should be an acceptable address proof is what I believe.

Yes, joint account passbook should be acceptable if they are from the specified list of banks mentioned on the PSK website, you need to take a copy of the page and have to get a seal from the bank on it. Along with that you may need one additional address proof as well.

My wife submitted the joint account passbook with bank seal along with mobile postpaid bills (with telecom company seal) for the last one year. This was in Bangalore PSK.

Even for the child abroad case, this is an additional document - not a substitute for Proof of Address

That said, I have no idea what's the point of an additional document.
