Regarding my passport - Place of Birth CHANGE
I need your advise. This is regarding my passport issue.
In my first passport, my place of birth was wrong which I noticed very later. I recently went for my passport renewal(10yrs validity getting completed) at Bangalore (PSK) where I want my place of birth also corrected. For that, as mentioned in Passport website, I submitted the required document (Birth Certificate, Affidavit from Notary Public). In PSK, they verified the new documents but they don't want take call and hence forwarded to Regional Passport Office.
Meanwhile, I understand from PSK that I have given the details wrong in the first application(first time passport) and not submitted any proof for birth place. Since I'm 1982 born, birth certificate is not mandate that time. Also the passport office people did mention that I have to pay some penalty.
Now I visited Regional Passport office, Bangalore and met the Passport Officer. To my surprise, the officer asked me to bring the Court Order. I'm not able to understand why?
I did mention that it's oversight mistake to wrongly mention the place of birth (town) in the application but I haven't submitted any fake document like birth certificate.
In this situation, can someone advise me what to do next? to go Court order or appeal again to the Regional passport officer...
