    For passport, you can either apply online or offline. For offline you have to fill up a form worth rs 10 and available in the regional passport office of your location. Then all the things are given in that booklet cum form iself, just read all the instructions carefully and fill up the form .Also, attach only valid and authentic document's xerox copy because any fake information deleviered can lead to judiciary action . Also online form can be fill up from official website of your state passport head office.

    Hi Dear,
    The procedure to apply for passport in India is very much easy. If you provide the proper details then you are able to get passport with 7- 14 working days . Firstly ,you should be Citizen of india,then many other steps are included for passport process i.e Suppose you are the living in bangalore from the last 1 1/2 years ,then you can apply for passport because if your living in bangalore from last 8 to 9 months , then you are not eligible for applying the passport . If yes (completed 1 year ) then fill the application form of passport with few details like your permanent and local address proof and even 2 proofs your neighbour addresses ,then proof of your date of birth i.e 10th class marksheet and 5- 8 passport size photographs. And thus attaching all these documents you can submit your passsport application form.Thanks

    Re: What is the procedure to applying for a passport in India?

    Hi,

    1) You need to get application forms available in any E-seva centre.

    2) Then u need to get photographs done according to the specifications given in the form.

    3) Then arrange all the documnents mentioned in the form.

    4) Take one or two zerox copies of all the doocuments.

    5) Fill the application form very carefully with out any mistakes. I would advice u to take 1 /2 zerox copies of application form and try filling it roughly first & then u can fill final form correctly.

    6) u need to write your name as it is as mentioned in the Xth class memo or birth certificate.

    7) Along with the filled form, photos, Xerox required documents, fees u need to submit in the regional passport office or any post office like GPO, Begumpet post office in hyderabad.


    Bye...

    You can apply for 2 modes either Online Or Offline.

    If you are interested to apply online, then firstly you have to Log into your Passport Seva user account And then Select the Apply Passport Online menu option in the left navigation menu.

    Then Fill in the required details in the form and submit the form online And after that Upload the required documents using the Upload Document link on the Applicant Home Page. The documents to be uploaded must be self-attested (signed by the applicant) and must be in pdf format. And finally you are required to be present at the Passport Seva Kendra along with original documents for completion of the application submission process.

    And if you are interested to apply offline, then for this you have to purchase the Passport form, from your nearest post offices and then fill the passport form and then submitted the form in the passport office along with photograps and necessary documents and you have to pay the 1000 rs fees at the time of submission your passport form.
