Dont you have a registered Rent agreement, because in Maharashtra, the rent agreement are to be compulsorily registered. ? If you have a registered rent agreement for a period more than one year, this agreement attested copy shall be a valid proof of address, you need not approach the house owner for NOC and the passport authorities also cannot insist on it.
1) In future you might claim on the property on the basis of the address in your passport
This is ridiculous;
2) If my family member shift to this house sometime later, he might not be use the address as it is locked by you and one address can be used by only one family,
The house owner's fears are unnecessary and he is unwilling to give NOC keping his own fears in his mind but you cannot force him.
