2) Which Form to fill, & what is the fees.
3) Will they issue new passport?
4) How much time it will take.

Thanks a lot.

All the info you need - from the site quoted in the previous post.
From the passport FAQ: http://passport.gov.in/cpv/faq.htm

Question 1: I got my passport from Delhi. Now I have shifted to Bangalore. Should I change my address in the passport? …. If change is required, what are the documents required and how much time will it take?

Ans. It is up to you to change the address. It is always better if your passport indicates your current address. For this purpose, you need to fill up form-II and submit it along with valid proof of your residential address at Passport Office of the area of where you reside.

http://passport.gov.in/cpv/Forms.htm
Application Form No. 2

Application Form No. 2 is for making application for Police Clearance Certificate, Deletion of ECR Stamp, Inclusion of Spouse's name and change of address. The same Form is used for renewing a short term validity passport to its full term validity.

4) How much time it will take. About 2 months
The passport is valid even after you have changed addresses. Unless your passport is about to expire soon, it is futile and pretty useless to just have an address change.

Dear narendra.d,

Thanks for the information.
However I have read somewhere online that for Address change, New passports are being issued. So confused! , in this case what is the time needed.

Will the police verification be done again.
Also please mention the fees.

Narendra clearly says that a new passport will be issued if you apply for adress change. What he also says is that no need to go for adress change unless your passport is nearing expiry date anyways. And the website clearly mentions the charges applicable.

Police verification will be required.
