Indian Law/mistake in passport issued !!


QUESTION: I've applied for re-new of passport and the place of issue of old passport is wrongly mentioned in new passport. I went to RPO and they told me that since i filled the form online and this mistake is on my part, they can't rectify it and i have to apply refresh a new passport and go through whole process again.

It is true that i have to go though all process again or they are just making an excuse to not do it ??

ANSWER: There is no other alternative but to apply for a freash pass-port.RPO has very correctly advised you.So follow the same.It has been specifically stated in the on line application form to read carefully the draft application before final submition.

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: Even if the mistake has been found out during police verification and he commented in his report that this needs to be rectified before issuing passport?

RPO told me that they don't cater police verification report for this matter. Even if the mistake has been found out during police verification, it will be printed as per form submitted.

As already advised,you have no other alternative but to apply for a fresh passport to rectify the mistake.Otherwise,it will create unnecessary harassment and legal complications to you in future.RPO is justified in printing the pass-port as per the declaration given by you in the application form.That's why they mention in the form to re-check it carefully before submission.
In view of the above,please re-submit the form without unnecessarily wasting your valuable time.
