India Passport

Assumptions

The minor has a passport that has expired just 10 days before (this post is valid for the expired passport within 3 years). Parents have a passport.

The minor has to renew his passport, and change of address.

Take an Appointment

Goto http://www.passportindia.gov.in/, and fill all the details. The form is not complex. Just keep on saving details, to avoid their session getting expired. Saving form allows you to view the form any number of time.

As I said, minor has to renew his passport, and change of address. I checked these two options.

Once you fill the form and submit. There is an option to pay the fee. In current, the fee for a minor is 1000 INR. You can pay online. But, before that, you are given the option to chose the appointment date and the passport office address. You can choose the passport office address which is near to you. 

Now, the tricky part is that while choosing the date of appointment. They give you very less window for that. They chose a default date of 1 or 2 days after current date. And, you are given the option to chose a different date, but that option only has 3-4 more days to choose. 

What to do if you want a different date?

Do not pay until you are shown your desired date. Your form is already saved. Don't panic. Try after some days, and chose the date when you see the option. Only after selecting the date, do the payment.

Documents required

  1. Old passport of minor (original and copy)
  2. Passport of parents (both father and mother) (original and copy)
  3. Print of appointment letter, which you will get after the payment.

Note: For address proof, parent passport will work. You do not need a birth certificate, as you already have old passport having dates.

What if the mother can not go with you on appointment day

It is not required for the mother to go. But, you will need to have the Form-D with you. Form-D is a kind of declaration from mother that she can not come and give consent for the same.

What if you did not take Form-D

It happens to me, I did not know this. I had to fill a Form-C. Another consent from father about the absence of the mother. But, it has the disadvantage that passport will require police verification. Means, another illegal fee to be given to police.

That's it.
