• Passport for leprosy-affected person

I am a Leprosy affected male, single, aged 73 yrs, living in Leprosy Assylum for more than 65yrs. No family details available. Now I am physically and mentally fit without any disease or deformity. I am not formally educated but can fluently read, write and speak in Hindi, English and Marathi.

I have only Voter ID as Identification and Address proof. 

Can I get a passport ? How to proceed and Whom to contact in this regard ?

1. You incur no disqualification to get a passport.

2. Apply for passport. If your application is rejected then you can move the HC or SC against the RPO.

3. Voter address should suffice if you do not have any other document.

Dear Querist
First of all apply passport via online portal of Passport Department and after that take the printout, pay the fee and fixed your appointment and visit the passport office for further procedure.
