My daughter who was born and brought up in Kuwait after completing her 18 years re-issued her passport due to the expiry of previous passport which was also issued issued in Kuwait. During the past years we whole family have reissued the passport to a new one due to the expiry. This time a new form had to be filled "Personal Particular form" in duplicate. In that form Permanent address column was filled with India address and there was another column present residential address where in Kuwait address was given. In the permanent address right now no one resides and one of my neighbor informed me that a police man was going around and asking of my daughter and they informed that we are out of the country. Now will there be any issue for her passport? What should be done in this case? We all family have renewed our passports several times and never faced such a situation. Would someone advise whether this is a new procedure?? What should I be done in this case now?

There should not be any problem. But if an adverse report is issued, you may respond to it with explanation that she has been residing in Kuwait and no one is residing at India address. You will have to submit proof of residence in Kuwait.

Thank you Prakaant for the response. The reason why I was raising this issue for clarification here was because some people advised me that in case the Police verification is failed there are chances that she might be stopped at immigration while reaching India or while leaving India. Also the fact I learnt is that unless the Police Officer is not met by someone personally and tipped most likely he wont bother to give a positive report, which can cause a report that "Police Verification Failed." During the past several years I have never faced such an issue and I have inquired to many people here and they also have never faced such an experience. What I really would like to know is, whether there is such a new rule that Police verification in India is required even for the people who are residing outside India for the renewal of their Passport at the concerned Embassy abroad?? I had submitted all required proof that she was born and brought up in Kuwait and she is a resident in this country.

Correction in my previous post: "unless the Police Officer is met by someone personally"

Generally this does not happen, and was amused to hear it from you... BTW, even if the police sends adverse report the Passport Office can take their own decision. Even if they send a show cause notice, she may submit her reply with evidence.

Thanks again Prakaant. The new Passport was already issued for her. This scenario of "Police Verification" happened only after almost 1 month of issuance of new passport. Different people have different opinion about it and there is no authentic information whether such a "Police Verification" is really a must for NRIs residing abroad for re-issuance of their old passport issued by Embassy abroad. These days passport services are being outsourced here to a company who employs very cheap laborers to handle it.

Those company's roles are limited. The police verification is done by Ministry of Home Affairs.

An applicant has to wait till any process is open. You should keep tracking the website.
