Passport is an important document that has to be kept ready, especially while travelling outside India. This official document is issued by the government and it allows the holder to travel outside the country without any trouble. It helps in identifying an individual and his/her nationality during international travel. It can also be used as an identity and address proof.
If you are looking to get a passport for yourself, the first step is to make an application and arrange all the required paperwork. Although passport application has now become seamless, a few passport applications could be rejected for different reasons. This makes it even more essential to be aware of the passport application process and what consists of the application form. Read on to find out all the necessary details of the passport application form.
About Passport Application Form
There are certain rules to be followed while filling a passport application form. These apply to the main and also the supplementary form. Since passport application forms are machine-readable (through ICR scanners), if these are not filled appropriately, these will not be read correctly and could be rejected. Information that has to be included in your passport will be as per what is filled in the form. Therefore, make sure to provide clear and accurate information on the same. It is also considered as a criminal offence if you deliberately provide incorrect or incomplete information or have withheld essential information.
