Guys my passport needs to be renewed, but they rejected it as my father name in pan card is Daud (correct) whereas in passport it is Doud...so earlier they asked to do affidavit and publish in 2 newspapers..

Anyone faced similar issue? In which newspapers I need to publish..I enquired one local newspaper and they said ₹1500 confused

Any news paper which is cheaper. No matter they are famous or not. Check with newspaper seller and ask which is less famous and contact them .

And even there too, sometimes the media purchasing agents/ bulk, non bulk ad-space buying agents give a cheaper rate to us than what the media house themselves give to walk-in customers.

Even local vernacular newspaper is okay.
No need for only English Hindi.. if its average circulation is in couple of thousands.

By the way, this name (typographical) error nuisance is a major one. So hopefully you have this only here and not in your other documents.

Do check if you simply claim 'passport lost' and then apply for a new one.. then will it be a different process.

Even if that works one still has to register the case with police and they have to give a closure report or at-least a NOC.

So one ad in local newspaper and other one in any English newspaper or national one like TOI, the Hindu ?

trying to correct father's name in passport? Doud to Daud?

I renewed in Jan'24 and did not notice that my passport had only father's first name but in application I filled as usual firstName+LastName. Passport officer said parents name should be as per old passport only, I said Ok and online application details changed by them in 1 min.

In my case, they said either update your other documents as per passport or create affidavit and publish in 2 newspapers

Sometimes i feel like the name is fed wrong in documents, on purpose. Once my document application had correct details, but the document issued had wrong details. Official put the wrong details, and turns out i had to apply to put the correct detail by paying fees.

Unlikely, since they still work with physical file w.r.t. original documents and other stuff.

At most one can check the feasibility of having the print of that classified taken and submit it as an attested copy or something.


Also, for records, all publishers of this nature.. keep archival copies of ALL editions of all magazines, periodically or newspapers they print.

Not that I want to opine on others whom I do not know and who do not really directly impact my life or those of my near dear ones..
but if this is the rollercoster for a passport application.. then it seems you (your folks) have a rather callous disposition towards things (even the important ones).

Keeping the (newspaper) clippings and other relevant things properly filed does not take that much of an effort or resources.
Anyway, everyone is different, I accept.
It would be unlikely for me to not notice as major a discrepancy as name mismatch across documents PRIOR to applying for a passport.
