Online application for Indian passport

There are 2 ways to get a passport, either fill in the form and go stand in line after taking a token. There is another way that has been recently introduced, and that is a part online, part standing in line process. What do you need to do ?
Well, if you belong to one of the areas covered by these passport offices, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Kozhikode, Ranchi, Bareilly, Ghaziabad, Lucknow, Surat, Bhopal, Goa, Malampuram, Srinagar, Bhubaneshwar, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Thane, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Nagpur, Trichy, Chennai, Jammu, Patna, Trivandrum, Cochin, Kolkata (Calcutta), Pune or Vizag, then you can apply online for registration at the following link
In addition, you can download some of the affidavits required at this link
Most important of all, refer to this checklist whether you are applying for a fresh passport, or going in for a re-issue or renewal, or applying for a name change or adding spouse name, or applying for a child passport.
Instructions for filling in the form online are available at this link
If you want to apply for a passport under the Tatkal scheme, then refer to this link

Once you have entered in all information, the system will generate a PDF file containing the details you need to fill in. You need to print it, and then enter a few additional details. The printed form will also have the date and time of appointment stamped on it. Paste 3 photographs with the specified size onto the form and then go to the passport office at the time of your appointment with the proofs that you need.

If you find that your passport is not coming in time, then you can contact your regional Regional Passport Officer. The page containing contact information is at this link.

For queries such as whether you need to update your passport if changing address, or ECNR stamp, addition of spouse name, baby passports, difference between re-issue and renewal, change of name in case of divorce, etc, refer to the FAQ’s located at this page.

    Dear All,
    Since 1 month I am unable to get an online appointment. The Passport Mela is dangerous for Senior Citizens because of the rush. NO water or toilet facilities there so decided to hold back for online appointments.
    I recently visited the RPO Koramangala and found that emails regarding the online portal can be sent to the below email addresses. People could you please collectively send all your greviences to the below officers?
    shalini.mathur@tcs.com (incharge of http://www.passportindia.gov.in as part of TCS project)
    rpo.bangalore@mea.gov.in

    Please blast them with emails regarding all the problem with the appoinment system.
    Regards,
    JaiHind
