Raju Kanumuri: An application for re-issue of passport in respect of change in personal particulars will have to be submitted for changing the date of birth in India passport. If the error was from passport authority, then a new passport is issued with the correct DOB without any fee. If the error was from the applicant then they charge a fee of rs.500 for issuing a new passport with the corrected DOB.
*An incorrect Date of Birth on a passport would have to be corrected within five years of the passport issued. The applicant should apply for re-issue of passport.
*An ordinary passport is issued with a 10-year validity, except when the applicant is minor. unless specified at the time of applying for renewal, a fresh passport is issued without any change in the personal particulars
*The new rule states that an applicant must provide a copy of a bona fide birth certificate to get the date of birth changed.
