I have a running bank statement only as address proof.I don't have a voter id card or ration card or bsnl landline.I live in a rented house, so the electricity bill comes in the owner's name.

So,will the bank statement be ssufficient as address proof?
Waiting for u'r replies..tHANKS IN ADVANCEE

yes, a bank statement is valid.
but only if the account is valid for the past year - from the date of passport application.

1. you need a covering letter from the bank - there is a standard format.
just tell the bank its for proof of address.
2. bank statement for the past year.

photocopy both - 2 copies each.
attest them copies.
photocopy the attested copies - 2 copies each.

i think - one set of the original attested copies is taken with the originals when you apply.
one set for safekeeping

you will need one set of photocopies for the police verification.
and one extra - just for safe keeping

photocopy both - 3 copies each.
attest them copies.
photocopy the attested copies - 3 copies each again.

yes - your bank account is valid
good luck with the application mspms !

important thing is - irrelevant whether it will be required or not...
photocopy all original documents - 3 sets would be good.
attest all them 3 sets.
photocopy all them attested copies - 3 sets!
never hurts and dont cost that much either, to have extra copies in hand - just in case you may need them

Address Proof for Passport

Hello; I had bitter experience with Madurai, Tamilnadu passport office one month ago (June 2010)that they do not accept even 10 years live bank passbook as the proof of address even for renewal of passport. I have no voter ID or ration card, Living overseas for long I had foreign address in my ceasing pp, but that was not accepted. It was a nightmare with those guys. Finally I happened to travel abroad before expiry of pp for passport renewal and now got that overseas. Be careful with the local passport offices. They have their own rules. Allow sufficient time for pp. Good Luck.

pan card = proof of identity - not address
bank statement = proof of address - not identity.

HI i have moved from delhi to bhopal since the last year and a half. for the first 8 months i lived in a different house since then i have moved on to a new house on rent. I have just transferred (a fortnight or so ago) my bank account to Bhopal (SBI)from another location (a different district)in MP. I have to reissue my passport which was earlier issued from Delhi. what can i give as residence proof as i do not have ration card or voters id from Bhopal.
Will my rent lease agreement do but even that does not say that i have been living in Bhopal for the last one year...it is only for the last 8 months that i have an agreement.

PLease advise!
