Hi guys just a quick question:

My passport expires in May of 2016 (from US). My Indian employment visa needs to be renewed in February of 2016. If I renew my passport now, will I need to re-register with the FRRO, or will that cause a problem for me in renewing my visa in February (different passport numbers, visa stamp in old passport, and so on).

Thanks for any input!

FRRO has Change of Passport service. It's one of the things you can select for online appointment:

Right. What I'm wondering is if I have to do that separately or if I can just register the change in passport when I renew my visa next year.

Good question. I don't know. I suppose if it was within a month, they wouldn't mind. Just a guess. I have no experience.

Hm. There will be a larger gap. I suppose I should just go and see. Thanks!

Yes, you may check with the local authorities and find out yourself...
