Dear All,

This might have been discussed already but I have some queries regarding Birth certificate and Indian Passport. This is my first thread so please bear with me.

To share some background,

Me and my wife (Indian passport holders) currently reside in UK. My wife will be in India for her delivery soon. We are originally from Maharashtra state in India.

Her passport still have her old full name and we haven't changed that yet also she has got her old address in India where she used to live before marriage. My name is NOT endorsed in her passport either.

We have original marriage certificate with us.

1 question -

What documents do we usually need for Birth certificate? Is it ok if we don't have my wife's name on my ration card ? My parent have ration card and my name is on it but my wife's not.

So is ration card is compulsory for birth certificate?

2 question -

As I said my wife's name is not changed on passport neither my name is on her passport. Am I still ok to get Baby's passport without issue? proving we are married and true parents of the baby? Also I want baby's full name bear my surname and my middle name.

Your opinions, suggestions will be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards.

NK.

2. No problem. There is no requirement that the parents both have same last name. The marriage certificate is sufficient.

Your wife has a passport. For your child's passport, check the FAQ on indian passport website.

When I applied for Birth Certificate of my son, no one asked for my marriage certificate. An address proof was asked. In most places the Hospital where the births happens is supposed to report all births and deaths to the Registrar Office. Whatever details were captured by the hospital are transmitted to the Registrar and those are mostly what appear on the birth certificate after tallying with what you mentioned in the application.

Also the hospital doesn't have a name yet for the baby. So what it sends is just the gender of the baby, names and address of parents.

The above is of course for Hyderabad, may be different in Maharashtra.

For a passport. a Births certificate, Marriage certificate, copies of Passport of both parents and a affidavit each from both parents agreeing for issue of the passport for the baby. The passport site has full details on the docs required.

@ Narendra

Thanks for your reply.

I did quick document search on passport website.

this is what I found

You are required to submit atleast 1 of the documents listed below.
1 Water Bill
2 Telephone (landline or post paid mobile bill)
3 Electricity bill
4 One year statement (with transactions)/ Passbook of running bank account (Scheduled Commercial bank excluding Regional Rural banks and local area banks)
5 Income Tax Assessment Order
6 Election Commission Photo ID card
7 Proof of Gas Connection
8 Certificate from Employer of reputed companies on letter head
9 Spouse's passport copy (First and last page including family details), (provided the applicant's present address matches the address mentioned in the spouses passport)
10 Applicant's current and valid ration card
11 Parent's passport copy, in case of minors(First and last page)

_________

So I hope my passport + wife's passport and my monthly phone bill would be sufficient enough for them along with all declaration and annex forms.

Just had a check on the checklist provided by Passport Office. It says:
Quote:
(3) When applying for a minor’s passport attach:

(a) A Declaration affirming the particulars furnished in the application about the minor child as per ‘Annexure-H (signed by both parents), ...

(b) Attested photocopy of passport, if any, of both parents, applicable.

(c) Original passports of parents should be presented for verification of particulars.

(d) If one parent is resident abroad, a Sworn affidavit by the parent resident abroad attested by the Indian Mission along with affidavit from parent residing in India as well be submitted.

N.B.: Ordinarily the consent of both parents is required for issue of a passport to a minor (below 18 years of age). However if it is absolutely not possible due to any reason, the parent applying for a passport for his/her minor child may submit an affidavit (Annexure G) and based on the same passport application will be processed. In case where the parent(s) is/are resident outside India, such consent from the parent(s), in the form of a sworn affidavit, duly attested by the Indian Mission abroad, is acceptable. In the cases where the minor children who are less than 18 years of age, the details of valid passports held by BOTH OR EITHER parents should be furnished. In such cases, passport to their minor child will be issued without any police verification basis. Further, in the cases where the parents do not hold valid passports, applications for such minors can be made on the basis of three documents of parents details of which are given in para C(B) of Section IV of the Passport Information Booklet along with Standard Affidavit Annexure I. In all such cases, passport to their minor child will be issued on post-police verification basis. Children of all ages including new born must apply for separate passports. However, those below 15 years will be given 5 years validity passport or passport till 18 years of age ...
I woud also suggest you to read pages from website of Passport Seva Portal and immihelp site
