Your passport is a valuable document. It should always be kept either in your own custody or in the custody of a person duly authorised by you. If lost, or destroyed, the fact and circumstances should be immediately reported to the nearest Indian Mission/Post and the local police.
Your passport must not be altered or mutilated in anyway nor any endorsement made on it by any person other than a duly authorised official of the Government of India.
The maximum life of an Indian Passport is ten (10) years from the date of issue. Please ensure that you obtain a fresh passport within one year before its expiry, as issue of new passport, after expiry of previous passport, could take a number of weeks.
Please keep a photocopy of your passport in a safe place. In the event of loss or damage of the original passport, its photocopy helps the applicant in providing important passport details, which are necessary to process the application for duplicate passport. Without these details, issuance of duplicate passport may be delayed.
It is an offence under the Passport Act 1967 to give false information in the application. Passport facilities can be denied on grounds of suppression of factual information, submission of false particulars, wilful damage of passport and for making unauthorised changes in the passports.
Your passport can be impounded or revoked by the Government of India under the provisions of the Passport Act 1967 in which event you will have to surrender the passport to the nearest Indian Passport Issuing Authority.
Application forms should be filled in fully, legibly (in capital letters) and accurately and submitted with the passport. Misrepresentation of facts may result in denial of passport/consular services. Applications received with incomplete details will remain unprocessed.
Every child should have a separate passport.
