  13. today I go to Passport seva kendra kolkata.I submitted my date of birth from my educational Instt. But they demanded birth certificate’ In absence of this they rejected my passport application. pl advise. Rajdeep Gupta

    • This is really a problem. I too also faced a lot of problems in submitting passport form both online as well as in their office. What they want is bribe.

    • If u r borne after 1980 (?), It is mandatory to submit birth certificate. U did not mention why don’t have birth certificate? In case genuinely u are unable to have a birth certificate, it is better to consult lawyer who will guide u to make an affidavit that may be acceptable. And due to up gradation of passport issuing facility thru’ public private partnership, the system works fast, transparent and bribe is out of question.
