Passport is must if you are planning to visit abroad.We have seen that people who wanted their passport they need to do it offline.Now you can do it online staying at home,for that you need internet connection and make an account in official site of Indian passport.But still people they don't know and they pay extra,I mean huge extra charge.
Normally you need rs.1500/- to 2000/- as per passport pages( If you passport page 32 then it rs.1500-/ and for 64 pages it charges = rs .2000/-). But some agencies who just do this simple work for you and they charge to you Rs.5000/- and more.Now I ask to them why you will pay them? you can also do it just you have to know the online procedure.
Today in my post i will show you how I have made my passport online step by step with out paying to third party or taking their help.Follow the easy steps below.
N.B – Please note if your date of birth is after 1990 then you need “BIRTH CERTIFICATE”. So if you don't have birth certificate then please don't apply,first take the birth certificate from your local hospital or for village from (B.D.O office)
