Hi,

I need some information regarding my Son's passport.I got a baby boy recently and I want to apply for a passport for him in Tatkal scheme. So can anyone please let me what are the documents needed and what is the proceudre to apply. I have visited the Indian passport site, but there is no relevant informantion regarding new borns. In all the application forms, I have seen it is mandatory stay in a particular place for more than a year, but my son has born last week itself, so how can show them a proof that he is staying here for more than a year.
Please clarify.

Sameer, the best deal would be to apply online and take an appointment with the passport officer. As far as I know, the Tatkal scheme has been discontinued, but again, please clarify it with someone more reliable.To support your sons application you'll need his birth certificate, 8 PP size photos, Rs. 600 processing fee, copy of your passport and your docs...All these details are published on their website, here is the link for online registration and general info: http://passport.nic.in/

And the common sense says a week day old can be a permanent resident of any place for a week only, I see no problem there

Tatkal Scheme was changed a few months ago that you no longer need to give a reason, and proof of your reason, for wanting the passport urgently. It is enough that you are prepared to pay the extra fee!

Getting a passport can involve a lot of standing in very long queues. You will find that many travel agents offer a service to take some of this trouble off your hands. For a few hundred rupees you may consider this worth it. They will be able to advise on all the requirements as well, and make sure your papers are correct before submitting.

My wife got a replacement for a lost passport, with address change, added spouse name, all sorts of stuff, done just a few months ago, through an agent. It took just a week. I think she had to meet him at the passport office once, but queueing was minimal.

BUT I did it all by MYSELF.

did not pay any thing extra to anybody....my passport was made last year. though it took 2 months go get the passport, but STILL YOU DONT'VE TO PAY TO AGENTS OR BRIBE ANYONE.....

m delhi based..what you've to do is..just find out the nearest passport cell to your house... in Delhi there are many (i think 5) other than Bhikaji cama palace's main pp office. people are not aware of these centres, thus the main office is always crowded. i applied at Daryaganj's office.. no long queues, no hassels.... I went just twice...once for getting the form and then just to deposit the form....................after 2 months i got my passport

@ sameer -

just ask them on fone, if hyderabad also have such new counters? or just consult to the passport officer directly or the PRO of the passport office..

Sure! I'm dubious about agents in general: the one I used to sort out my Indian visa after marriage delivered nothing but bullshit.

Mrs N did her first passport. Despite a certain sum having been passed over to get it done in two weeks, it took five, and arrived showing her to be male. they even claimed that that was her fault!

I think that passport office has been really shaken up since then, and they can and will deliver.

But I've seen the queues at Sastri Bhavan here in Chennai. Enormous

All the e-seva counters in Hyderabad accept Passport Applications and the queue is relatively smaller than the main PP office.

I think (80% certain) Eseva has stopped taking passport applications a few months ago.

A colleague applied for a passport for his newborn last year and I remember him saying that no-objection letters from both the parents had to be furnished together with the application.
Residency requirements do not apply to newborns.

Yea...You're right Capt. Mahajan, e-seva doesn't collect PP applications anymore.
The Begumpet Post Office (under the railway bridge) has a PP application counter, which is almost empty at all times, maybe people don't know about it, but they do not accept PP applications for minors (below 18yrs).

HI,
I want to apply passport for my baby in tatkal scheme. I need to know the documents required for the same. my passport and my husband's passport have different address and i havent added his name in my passport yet. Since my husband is in USA right now. Is my passport, baby's birth certificate and our marriage certificate enough for applying the passport? Can anyone help me in this regards?

Thanks and regards,

chelliraju,

The online guides ask for Parent's passport, not sure if both the parents passports are needed.

You can try giving a call to your nearest Passport office. Out of 4 times I called Kolkata RPO, they responded twice very well (got appropriate suggestion), once the guy seemed very busy, and did not sound nice, but gave the info all right. Once it was a horse s**t!

Broadly, you may want to refer to http://passport.gov.in for reference.

A normal sequence would be:
  1. Get the required forms.
  2. Find out the costs.
  3. Find out Where you can apply.
  4. Go through the Checklist.
  5. Prepare docs as above.
  6. Apply online to get an appointment.
Did you wear the other person's shoe today?

the applicarion process for bangalore is completely online now, they will no longer accept physical submission atleast in lalbagh and marathalli offices.

1. goto www.passportindia.gov.in and create a userid
2. download and edit and upload the same form on their website, also attach the proofs with it
3. fix an appointment and then go at the time..

Any other way is a hassle, i went and stood in the queue from 5AM! and still didn't get the token cos they only issue about 75 tokens and on an average day there are about 300+ people!

the downside is the online appointments are booked till april beginning, i could only get feb 15 when i tried last week.
