hello sir,

I am in the process of renewing my passport but I have few questions. I got deported by ICE. USA on feb 3rd 2012 as i could not attend school due to financial reasons so I had to come back to INDIA. Now in the meantime i lost my passport and I have duly filed FIR for it. i will be applying for passport renewal soon . now while filing out the application form should i mention about my deportation or just avoid it. would i face any problem due to that. i have no record in india . i just got repatriated from USA as i could not attend school and I have even mentioned that to indian customs while coming back.
and the passport i lost had 3 yrs of validity and would be expiring on 2016.
if i do apply would i be getting a new passport with new number or they would just issue me a duplicate one.
I would prefer a new one as that would give me 10 yrs of validity .

please let me know what are the best options for me and would i be facing any issue while applying for the lost passport.

thanks for your help

You must disclose correct information in your pass-port application form.It is a criminal offence to make false information in the said application.Since the validity period of your existing passport has not yet expired,naturally you are to apply for a duplicate passport.However, please take all actions in consultation with the PRO of the Passport Issuing Authority and disclose true facts to him and do not hide anything.
